About me

Dr Birgit Gurr has been working as a clinical neuropsychologist in Dorset for over 20 years. Her specialty is providing assessments and treatments for people who are recovering from a head injury, stroke or have cognitive or emotional difficulties in association with a neurological illness (such as MS, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy etc).
Assessments can be provided for people with particular difficulties (e.g. worries about memory or post-concussion problems).
Dr Gurr has extensive experience in helping people with psychological problems in relation to brain trauma, neurological or so-called functional neurological disorders. She has been using a Bio-Psycho-Social approach to help people with complex neuro-related health needs and chronic pain disorders (e.g. headaches after brain trauma). This means that she tries to understand people’s health problems by taking their personal situation and wider experiences into account.
Dr Gurr is working within the NHS as a consultant clinical neuropsychologist.
