BSc.PGCE.MSc.CPsychol Child and Educational Psychologist
HCPC Registered Practitioner
I am a Child and Educational Psychologist committed to supporting children and young people to help reach their learning potential. I use evidence-based approaches to assess and understand child development and young people’s psychology. I love my work and feel privileged to be able to work with children, young people and their families.
I am a registered Educational Psychologist with over 15 years’ experience working mainly privately, with experience in Local Education Authorities (LEA).
The majority of my generic work has been spent working with individuals, groups and school systems in independent, mainstream and special schools. My work involves assessment and consultation with pupils, teachers and families as well as delivering research-based intervention packages to groups of children.
Some of my whole school work has included; delivering In- Service Training (INSET), using systems psychology, writing school policy and advising the LEA on what specialist educational provision is required for those with Special Educational Needs.

Thank you so much for such a thorough report. I’ve sent it across to the inclusion department and will let you know as soon as I hear back from them. Both my husband and I really have appreciated your efforts with both our girls, thank you.
I meant to say a big thank you for all your hard work with our daughter. She’s been less stressed and definitely relieved by the diagnosis of Dyslexia.
Hi Jane, How are you? I was just doing some sorting and found the wonderful letter you sent to X after his assessment.
