I have worked in the field of neuropsychology since 2001, both within the private sector and a range of NHS settings. My work largely involves neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation with individuals who have suffered an acquired brain injury (e.g. head trauma, stroke, brain tumour) or have been diagnosed with a neurological condition (e.g. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury).
I am skilled in the administration of a range of neuropsychological assessment tools to look at specific areas of cognition, or functioning more generally, and can provide reports either for medico-legal purposes, or for use within a more clinical /rehabilitation context. I can provide clinical input with individuals and / or their families / care teams for a range of difficulties. These may include changes in behaviour or personality, memory deficits, difficulties coping with or adjusting to a new life, sexual problems, or any other change which may occur as a result of an injury to the brain.
Treatment approaches may include developing a behaviour management programme, providing strategies to help with memory problems, or individual / couples therapy, although treatment plans are individually tailored. My preferred psychological approaches are cognitive-behaviour therapy, behavioural approaches, supportive counselling and motivational interviewing, again tailored to the requirements of the individual.
