Kerry Taylor is a clinical psychologist and has had the honour of working with children and families for 20 years. She still is learning constantly from the families she sees, every day. Kerry is absolutely convinced that if we work at the right time with families (pregnancy and up to aged 2) we have the chance to prevent child mental health problems. The determination to act on this has led her to do things that sensible clinical psychologists don't do- like leave an NHS that she cherishes, set up a charity called BrightPIP (Brighton Parent Infant Psychological Therapy http://www.brightpip.co.uk ) and even start this personal blog space.
This year Kerry’s passion for parent infant psychology has led to the great adventure and privilege of being awarded a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship. Next month, she will travel to New York, seeking answers to the question 'how can we work with vulnerable babies and their families who really need preventative mental health?' The plan is to return with some wisdom to help U.K. families.
When not on a quest, Kerry lives in Brighton with her family. Please know that views expressed freely in this blog are entirely Kerry’s own and not representative of BrightPIP. Your views, responses and questions are encouraged and very welcome.
