Neuropsychological assessment and Cognitive remediation 

I can provide comprehensive assessment and treatment for a wide range of problems arising from cognitive, emotional and/or physical health issues.

I offer the following services:

  • Mood and behavioural changes, including lowered stress tolerance
  • Organisation and planning problems that contribute to difficulties in memory, attention, and time management
  • Stress-based cognitive or emotional problems arising from acute psychological trauma, e.g. PTSD

  • Stress related problems
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Adjustment to life transitions and grief
