I work with adults who have long-term conditions and often regarded as resistant to treatment, like trauma, personality disorders, bipolar, brain injuries, learning disabilities, ADHD and Autism.
My main priority is helping people feel empowered about their strengths and work to prevent relapse, and for people to feel they are helping themselves.
I carry out specialist assessments, such as ADHD, Autism, memory, mental capacity, IQ, executive functioning, and so on.
I have worked for the NHS and private organisations. I currently work for the NHS part-time, and also have private referrals from the Home Office, DWP, charities, local authorities, Solicitors, and most health insurers.
