Overview

I am a Clinical Neuropsychologist with over 15 years experience working in health and neuropsychology settings. I trained to be a Clinical Psychologist at Plymouth University, where I furthered my love of the outdoors and got to know the beauty spots of Cornwall on my clinical placements across the county. Post qualification, I was able to follow my passion working in neurorehabilitation with individuals and their families with Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI) and neurological conditions. I have been fortunate to work in a range of settings within the UK and internationally, including Singapore and Ontario, Canada. 

I am an EDI tutor (focusing on disability) and Clinical Tutor for the Devon and International Trainee Clinical Psychologists. I work for the doctorate course alongside my clinical role in neurorehabilitation. I really enjoy supporting and developing fellow Psychologists at the start of their careers. It is very rewarding to see the development of their skills and confidence, becoming competent and compassionate clinicians who will make a real impact on people’s lives.  

 

Qualifications

2011 Doctorate in Clinical Psychology

  • Social justice issues, service access and disability
  • Compassion and Altruism in Healthcare settings
