Clinical NeuroPsychology

Clinical Neuropsychology offering assessment and treatment for the cognitive and emotional impact of neurological conditions. I have more than a decade’s experience of working with patients at every stage of care, from hospital admission to living in the community.

Neuropsychologists are experts on how neurological illness changes emotional well-being, behaviour and cognitive functions. Whether you have Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Brain Injury, Stroke, Dementia or another neurological condition, a neuropsychologist can help you cope with:

·  Cognitive problems, including difficulty with memory, language, thinking skills such as planning and organising, and concentration

·  Feeling frustrated, low or anxious

·  Loss of confidence and low self-esteem

·  Physical symptoms including pain, weakness and fatigue

·  Feelings of bereavement for lost abilities and activities

·  Changes in behaviour including irritability and anger, apathy and an inability to start tasks, and lost social skills

Are you worried about memory and other mental skills?  My services include comprehensive cognitive assessment and speedy reports to allow you get the advice that you need and move forwards. I use the latest cognitive tests to find which skills are affected. I can then advise you how to manage and overcome these problems using evidence-based cognitive rehabilitation techniques.

Is managing your symptoms emotionally overwhelming you? Neurological illness increases the risk of psychological distress, including depression, anxiety, and low self-confidence. Therapy can help you understand why neurological illness causes emotional distress, cope with the emotional impact of neurological problems, adjust to your illness and develop strategies to manage your symptoms.

I am registered with the HCPC and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I hold the BPS’ “gold standard” Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology and I am listed on the BPS Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists. If you need someone with the highest level of expertise in clinical neuropsychology,   I can help. Therapist:  Vikki Hunkin

Clinical Psychology

Clinical psychologists aim to reduce the distress and improve the psychological wellbeing of their clients. They use psychological methods and research to make positive changes to their clients’ lives and offer various forms of treatment.They work with clients of all ages who have a variety of different mental or physical health issues, such as depression and anxiety, mental illness, adjustment to physical illness, neurological disorders, addictive behaviours eating disorders, personal and family relationship problems and learning disabilities.

Clinical psychologists work in partnership with their clients over a series of sessions in order to build a shared understanding (‘formulation’) of their difficulties, explain why they may be happening and to make sense of them.  This may include past difficulties and experiences if these are relevant to the present.  This understanding informs the next steps which may include therapy.

Energy Therapy

It has been scientifically proven that every living being is made up of electromagnetic energy, which vibrates at different frequencies. This energy is sometimes called the “Aura” or “Chi” (in science it is referred to as the electro-magnetic field or Bio-field) and it refers to energy which flows through the body in order to energy-feed every cell in the body and maintains health and well being on all levels.

Energy Healing is the clearing of blockages and disruptions in a person’s Bio-field and the re-balancing of the entire physical, psychological and emotional body.

Psychotherapy

Rose offers psychotherapy to understand more about what is troubling you right now. Together we identify what is preventing you from being the person you could be, relating to others and life challenges the way you want to.

This sometimes means understanding more about how the past is continuing to influence you now in ways that are helpful and unhelpful. By making conscious choices about what learning from the past needs developing, updating or throwing in the bin you can change your present experience with others. Rose is an accredited full clinical psychotherapist.
