A nationally recognised forensic and clinical psychologist, Shona is known for supporting troubled children, young people and their carers, and collaborating with support and protection agencies to address the challenging behaviours that result from complex and criminal situations.
John was 16. One day his mother took the family computer to be repaired. She was later contacted by police who told her that the IT people had found stored pornography of children on it. John was charged with offences relating to the storage and distribution of child pornography and needed help.
Sarah was 14. While she was too shy to talk to the boys at school Sarah started contacting boys via the internet. Things progressed and she performed online video sexual favours for them. Sarah’s family were shocked and horrified when the matter was brought to their attention by police.
Rory was 20. One tragic day, Rory was driving dangerously, his car hit a pole and his best mate, a passenger, was killed. Shona assisted Rory with his very complex grief, and when the time came, she assisted his legal team by preparing reports for court and advising the judge about appropriate options for Rory.
