About me

 

Experience

 

I am a senior psychologist with over 20 years experience in rehabilitation psychology, neuropsychological assessment and positive behaviour support. This includes over four years as Practice Leader in Disability Psychology with the NSW Department of Family and Community Services and three years as Principal Psychologist with St Vincent's Public Hospital in Sydney.

 

I am currently Principal Project Officer with the Ministry of Health's Integrated Service Response (ISR) in Sydney. The ISR assists services supporting individuals with cognitive impairment and complex disability across New South Wales. Earlier in my career I held appointments in the United Kingdom (UK) as Director of Psychology with the Transitional Rehabilitation Unit, and as Clinical Team Leader with the UK's Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.

I am entered on the British Psychological Society's (BPS) Specialist Register for Clinical Neuropsychologists and am a Practitioner Full Member of the BPS Division of Neuropsychology.

 

 

Motivational interviewing

 

I have a particular interest in motivational interviewing when a person's cognitive functioning is an issue. Motivational interviewing is an empathic evidence based approach to helping a person change behaviour. I provide seminars and training in motivational interviewing in the United Kingdom and in Australia and have led Train the Trainer programs for organisations in both the corporate and public sector. I am a member of the peak international Trainers' group The Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT).
