Dr Titman completed her psychology degree at Oxford University and her clinical training and doctorate at UCL. She has 25 years experience of working with children and families with a wide range of psychological difficulties in both mental health and physical health services across community CAMHS and hospital settings.

She is experienced in carrying out cognitive assessments to draw up an individualised profile of strengths and weaknesses including recommendations of ways to support a child to learn effectively. Dr Titman has particular expertise in working with children and families with physical illness or disability, having worked at Great Ormond Street Hospital for 15 years.
