About me

I am a consultant clinical neuropsychologist with over 20 years of clinical experience. I specialise in the assessment and rehabilitation of the full range of acquired neurological disorders in adults, including brain injury, stroke, brain tumours and progressive long term conditions and the neuropsychological (cognitive) and psychological aspects of these conditions both on the individual and their family.

I am a chartered clinical psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS), I am listed on the BPS Division of Neuropsychology’s Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists and I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council that regulates psychologists. I am also a member of the Division of Neuropsychology’s Executive Committee and Policy Unit.

I trained at the Universities of Leeds and Sheffield, followed by the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London. I have obtained the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN) of the British Psychological Society, which is viewed as the gold standard qualification for clinical neuropsychology within the UK.

I have had several clinical appointments within the NHS in the associated prestigious hospitals: the Bethlem & Maudsley and Kings College, working in a variety of posts. I therefore have extensive experience both in neuropsychology and also of working with psychological conditions such as depression and anxiety.

I carry out regular continuing professional development and am also often invited to teach on clinical neuropsychology issues. I provide supervision to trained clinical psychologists on neuropsychology issues.

I have worked with the National Institute of Clinical Excellence, the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman and the Royal College of Physicians.

I am registered with all the major medical insurance companies.
