I am a Counselling Psychologist with many years of experience working both privately and within an NHS multidisciplinary CAMHS team. I focus particularly on difficulties around learning and I incorporate an educational psychologist’s emphasis on cognitive testing within a broader psychological assessment process tailored to the needs of each individual child.
In cases of ADHD I find that the Wechsler tests can often help to hone in on a child’s unique learning style, providing an in depth documentation of strengths and weaknesses across a broad spectrum of tasks. Cognitive testing can also give a sense of intellectual potential and facilitate the implementation of targeted support as required.
