About me

I am a Clinical Neuropsychologist with 25 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 am 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 developed 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. Issues being assessed have included those of capacity or fitness to plead, neurocognitive profiling in criminal cases, and the neuropsychological assessment of injuries for compensation claims.

I have also continued to provide assessment and therapy for those suffering Acquired Brain Injury, Stroke, Post-Concussion Syndrome and functional neurological symptoms.

I currently provide 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. I am also involved in the setting up of a voluntary support group for those with problems arising from alcohol addiction.
