Meet the Neuropsychology Team

About the Team

The Clinical Neuropsychology Service, working with both adults and children, specialises in the assessment and the rehabilitation of cognitive, emotional, and behavioural difficulties following brain injury and/or other neurological conditions.

We use an eclectic and dynamic approach to gather and understand the difficulties that may be presenting as barriers for a client to achieve their rehabilitation goal/s. Our aim is to provide the most appropriate type of scaffolding that could be used to enable a client to achieve their rehabilitation goals.  This may include a mixture of direct intervention with the client as well as indirect intervention with the system and services around them.

In addition to neurorehabilitation, we also specialise in Mental Capacity Assessments and Expert Witness Reports for litigation purposes.

We work in a variety of settings including the community, schools, rehabilitation units, and homes.  The Neuropsychology services currently cover the East and West Midlands, North West, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and the South West.  However, we anticipate additional geographical will also be added in due course so please contact us for more information.
