She utilises a person-centred approach and understands the value of working as part of an interdisciplinary team in order to improve outcomes.

She also has a strong interest in supporting victims of crime and people who live with the ongoing impacts of trauma.
She has experience providing crisis support, conducting a variety of psychological assessments, as well as delivering therapeutic interventions. Florence has worked in hospital and community settings, with individuals, families and groups.
