Julie Tilsed

I recommenced working for Dorset Families Matter as a family link worker in September 2019. Prior to this role I worked as a specialist nurse on Kingfisher children’s ward at Dorset County Hospital. My specialist area of care was children and adolescent mental health. Prior to working on Kingfisher ward I was a senior nurse therapist within the Dorchester Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) I am a registered general nurse, a mental health nurse for adults, a paediatric nurse and I have degree in child and adolescent mental health. I am a volunteer for the Dorset Family Counselling Trust who are a charity that offer support to families with concerns for their children’s emotional wellbeing. I am also a volunteer for Mosaic, a Dorset charity who offer emotional support to families following a bereavement. I feel very optimistic and positive about re-joining the team to work alongside families as a Family Link Worker.
