I have over 15 years experience of working with people with neurological conditions in acute, outpatient and community settings. I specialise in neuro-rehabilitation for people who have severe brain injuries and am skilled at providing interventions for individuals, their families/carers and multidisciplinary teams. Examples of such interventions include rehabilitation for cognitive impairments, management of behaviour and personality change, education and support, and therapy for difficulties associated with adjustment, anger, anxiety, depression, and trauma. I also specialise in complex capacity assessments, neuropsychological assessment of acquired brain injury, and providing comprehensive reports to help inform treatment decisions and rehabilitation needs.
Currently I lead the clinical service at a residential acquired brain injury rehabilitation unit for adults with severe and complex brain injuries. From 2016-2019 I led the inpatient neuropsychology service for children’s neurosciences at a regional children’s hospital, providing specialist assessments and interventions with children and their families. From 2009-2016 I led the neuropsychology service within a community neurorehabilitation team, specialising in the assessment and treatment of adults with acquired brain injury and degenerative neurological disorders. I have also been working in private practice for over 5 years, providing individualised rehabilitation and indirect consultation to case managers and teams working with people who have an acquired brain injury.
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.
