Caroline Clunies-Ross


Caroline qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 1992, but is also a trained Family Therapist, registered Cognitive-Behavioural Psychotherapist and a Clinical Supervisor. Her career to-date spans across the NHS, most prevalently in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), but also in Primary Care and within a Secure Children’s Home.

In 2010 Caroline became Clinical Lead of a specialist CAMHS team working with children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse and assault, focussing on the impact on both the individual and the family. She has trained with the US developers of Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT). TF-CBT is reported to be the best-evidenced intervention for children and young people with post-traumatic stress disorder (Cohen, Mannarino, and Deblinger) and recommended by NICE for PTSD following sexual trauma. Caroline is the recognised UK trainer and consultant for TF-CBT.
