MA (Hons.), DipPsych, PhD in Neuropsychology
I have 35 years of experience working with people and families living with a range of brain injuries in the NHS. I now work in the private sector. I also provide voluntary sessions for several Headway branches. I have supervised trainee and qualified clinical psychologists, MSc and PhD research students. I continue to do research and have published papers on the cognitive, emotional and social effects of brain injury in a number of international peer-reviewed journals.
I assist people who have a brain injury and their families and well as joining with multidisciplinary treatment teams. My aim is always to help them find a way of living that works for them after an injury. I access a range of approaches when supporting clients’ efforts to adapt to brain injury including training on the effects of brain injury, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Emotion Focused Therapy.
I conduct Mental Capacity assessments. I provide medicolegal reports to the Court and have attended BPS and Bond Solon training courses on medicolegal procedures.
I see clients living in South Wales and the Bristol area. I see people in consulting rooms, their homes and sometimes remotely.
