Clinical psychologist

Dr Sheena Webb started her career as a Nursing Assistant twenty years ago at the Bethlem Royal Hospital. After qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 2003, she has worked in a number of NHS child mental health services specialising in children and adults with complex needs and high risk-behaviour. For most of her career, Dr Webb has worked in innovative services which try to provide psychological intervention to families which are usually considered ‘hard to help’. This has included delivering multisystemic therapy and providing specialist assessments and interventions for Local Authorities and the Family Courts.

In 2015, Dr Webb joined FDAC, which is a problem-solving court which brings together health, social care and justice professionals to help parents struggling with addiction who are at risk of losing their children. Dr Webb has a special interest in complex developmental trauma and in developing ‘trauma-informed’ services that recognise the impact of childhood trauma upon psychosocial outcomes and upon how individuals engage with services. Dr Webb delivers training to a range of health and social care professionals on trauma informed care, parental substance misuse and mental health.
