About Me

My background is in neuropsychological assessment and cognitive rehabilitation particularly in older adults. I have specialist training in memory and learning, and an understanding of how mental health, anxiety, depression, lifestyle and other factors impact functioning. I use psychological treatments which focus on improving mental health, and optimising brain health. I also have experience providing psychological support for caregivers, including helping them to understand behavioural changes that may occur in neurodegenerative diseases.
