Dr Natalie Hampson


Background experience

I have over 10 years experience of working with people with neurological conditions in acute, outpatient and community settings. From 2009-2016 I led the Neuropsychology Service within an adult community team, specialising in the assessment and treatment of adults with acquired brain injury (e.g. as a result of accidents, assaults, brain tumours, strokes) and degenerative neurological disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis). Currently, I lead the inpatient Neuropsychology Service for a children’s neuroscience ward, providing highly specialist assessments and interventions with children and their families.
I have significant experience of administering and interpreting a wide range of neuropsychological assessments to establish people’s levels of impairment and functioning, conducting complex capacity and risk assessments, and providing comprehensive reports to help inform treatment decisions and rehabilitation needs. I also specialise in providing treatments for individuals with neurological impairments, their families/carers and multidisciplinary teams. Examples of this work include neuro-rehabilitation for memory and attention problems, management of behaviour change, education and support, and therapy for difficulties associated with adjustment, anger, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
I provide regular consultancy to a range of professionals and am a lecturer and clinical and research supervisor of doctoral trainee Clinical Psychologists within the North West.
