We’re delighted to announce that Ciara O’Gara has joined the psychology department at Shrewsbury Court Independent Hospital as an Assistant Psychologist. Ciara brings over three years of experience in Health and Social Care; this has included more than two years as a Support Worker supporting adults in the community with learning disabilities and a range of mental health diagnoses, and during the past eight months as a Therapy Worker in Mulberry Ward.
Ciara has worked with people across the age range, from pre-school aged children to older age adults, both male and female. Her area of special interest is in substance-misuse and mindfulness-based interventions.
Ciara commented, “I’m really looking forward to working within the new psychology team and the wider clinical team at Shrewsbury Court; I’m committed to supporting our patients in their journey towards re-entering the community and to working with them on some of the challenges that arise along the way.”
