Tamatha Weisser

BA (Hons)


Wellbeing Practitioner

I recently completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Children and Young People's Psychological Wellbeing Practice at King's College London with a therapeutic placement within the Family Mental Health Team at the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust.

My role in the TOPIC Research Group is to facilitate the MY-CATS (Minimising Young Children's Anxiety Through Schools) large-scale randomised controlled trial, liaising with families accessing a specially-designed online intervention programme. This aims to test a new way of identifying and supporting infant school-aged children who possess one or more risk factors for being particularly vulnerable to worries and fears by assisting parents/carers to help them build confidence, increase independence and develop coping skills, hopefully reducing the likelihood of serious anxiety problems developing as they get older.

I also have an interest in the benefits of Mindfulness in promoting children's emotional wellbeing and trained to teach a structured, evidence-based Mindfulness programme in primary school based on the standard adult 8 week introductory course.
