Louise is a specialist in neurodiversity (or ‘specific learning difficulties’). She works with clients who have conditions such as dyslexia, dyspraxia (developmental coordination disorder), Asperger Syndrome and attention deficit disorder (ADHD). Louise has a particular interest in the ways in which these conditions affect people in education, training, and at work.
Since becoming a chartered psychologist, Louise has gained considerable experience in the identification of neurodiverse conditions. She has worked with those seeking employment and with those in employment. Louise has also worked with students in a range of educational settings and has assessed many students who wish to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs).
Louise pays particular attention to detail when gathering background information about a client. She produces clear and thorough reports which enable clients, and those supporting them, to understand their strengths and weaknesses. The recommendations are tailored to the individual and allow reasonable adjustments to be put into place. These include access arrangements for examinations and assessment centres.
Louise is based in the South West of England in Bristol. Her clients come from BANES, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire, and beyond. Referrals are made directly from clients as well as through educational establishments and employers.
Louise is a Chartered Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (Membership number: 080788) and is also registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (Registration number: PYL05716).
