Jenny joins CPP as a vastly experienced NHS clinician.  Her Bachelor of Arts is from the University of Strathclyde, and she gained her doctorate in 2001 from the University of Glasgow.  She has worked within the NHS in Scotland since 1998 within a variety of specialisms, with a particular passion for helping children and young people with additional needs – including, for example, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Learning Disabilities.

 

In addition to her work with CPP, Jenny has recently been providing specialist input into a residential and day school for young people with ASD in Scotland’s central belt. Dr. Low is EMDR trained, and is also expert in the use of Solution Focussed therapy, and CBT for young people with anxiety and depression.

Kirsty is an alumni of Glasgow University where she did both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. She has worked in the NHS in Scotland since 2001, where she has only just recently left a Consultant position to work full time with CPP.

 

Kirsty has worked with children and families for all of her professional career, and is a UK expert in the mental health needs of Looked-After Children. She has worked extensively within the child welfare system and forensic settings, as well as in mainstream mental health services.

A specialism of Kirsty's is providing expertise into the legal system, where she regularly produces reports and expert evidence for Child Care Proceedings. This includes assessment of parenting and complex parent-child dynamics relating to, for example, residency or contact arrangements.
