About Samantha: I am a Child Psychologist who is both a practitioner and academic. As an academic, I have lectured at various universities and am an author. As a practitioner I have worked in clinical assessment and diagnosis of ASD. I then moved into behavioural support for children and young people, while also working in court as an intermediary for vulnerable defendants. I was an anti-bullying adviser, covering all schools in the East Midlands and have run private practices in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Harley Street, London. In addition I have worked as a last point intervention for children at risk of exclusion from school. I have also run qualitative research companies, working with leading children's charities, Local Authorities and Government departments. I began my studies toward becoming a Child Psychologist many years ago through distance learning before going on to complete my PhD while working alongside the children's charity, ChildLine.
