A Clinical Psychologist within Neuropsychology specialises in supporting the emotional, behavioural and cognitive difficulties that can often result from brain injury.
Do you or someone you know identify with the following difficulties as a result of a stroke, traumatic brain injury or other neurological condition?
- Struggling to cope with difficult emotions or distress following brain injury?
- Increased worry or anxiety that is stopping you from doing the things you want to do?

- Development of positive behaviour support plans and behavioural guidelines.
- Advice regarding cognitive rehabilitation and implementation of compensatory strategies to manage cognitive deficits.
- Psychological therapy (eg cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy) to support people to explore, understand and better manage difficulties resulting from their neurological event or condition (eg emotional distress, adjustment, behavioural difficulties).
