I am a Clinical Neuropsychologist and worked for many years within the NHS and in the past 4 years have worked as an Independent Practitioner. I have 26 years of experience working in the area of acquired brain injury (ABI) including stroke (20 years at Consultant grade). During this time I have carried out assessments for legal and quasi-legal purposes and have acted as an expert witness at court.
I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. I am a full member of the Divisions of Neuropsychology, Clinical Psychology and Health Psychology. I am also an accredited supervisor for the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology and have completed a post graduate course in clinical supervision.
I am an HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist.
I have experience in providing neuropsychological assessments for the establishment of the capacity of an individual to make decisions about their place of residence and other important aspects of their life. I also have expertise in the assessment of neuro-cognitive function for court or insurance purposes and have acted as an expert witness on many occasions.
I have experience in the differential diagnosis of dementia and of all forms of acquired brain injury. I am skilled in the therapeutic management of the cognitive and behavioural difficulties arising from reduced or impaired cognitive function including post-concussion symptoms.
I have been working independently since 2015 carrying out neuropsychological assessments of capacity or of fitness to plead; neurocognitive profiling in criminal cases; assessments for the Family Court proceedings; medical negligence cases; and of injuries for accident compensation claims.
I also provide an Independent assessment and therapy service for those adults suffering Acquired Brain Injury, Stroke, Post-Concussion Syndrome, Epilepsy and functional neurological symptoms. Neuropsychological assessment for work, education or private health/pension schemes are also provided.
I have provided a Clinical Neuropsychology assessment service to a pilot project being run by one NHS Trust for the treatment and rehabilitation of those with Alcohol Related Brain Injury.
