The Trainers:

Dr Lauren Daniel (Clinical Psychologist)

Since qualifying as a clinical psychologist Lauren has worked in a CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) in London. Her day to day job is very varied and she sees a large range of different ages, demographics, contexts and psychological presentations, but she is absolutely committed and passionate to supporting young people and their families. She has also recently broadened her role to become more involved in assessing and supporting young people with ASD and ADHD.

Emma Phillipson (Music Therapist at Chiltern Music Therapy)

Emma knew from the age of 4 whilst standing in front of an audience singing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' dressed as a Christmas tree that music would be a massive part of her life and now she gets to use music to help others! Emma trained at Anglia Ruskin University in 2014 and has since worked with a broad range of client groups specialising in working with children with additional needs.
