‘You will face many defeats in life, but never let yourself be defeated.’
What is the role of an educational psychologist?
Educational Psychologists (EPs) are Practitioner Psychologists who use their expertise to enable children and young people to engage more effectively in life and education, whether this is due to emotional, learning, social, physical, sensory, behavioural or cognitive challenges – or other factors. To achieve this we also work with adults through consultation, staff & policy development.
I use a holistic approach. This is because a difficulty might present itself but have various underlying features. The needs of the child are central at all times.
My ethics and standards are underpinned by Health & Care Professions’ Council (HCPC), British Psychological Society (BPS) and other (e.g. statutory) requirements.
An experienced Educational Psychologist, I have worked in Hertfordshire and Kent local authorities and supported children throughout the country.
For Further Information
Please contact me to discuss your needs. I work from Bognor Regis, West Sussex but will attend counties involving up to two hours drive, as well as tribunals in London.
Please ensure you have considered the involvement of an Educational Psychologist from the Local Authority as their involvement will not incur a charge for you. All Educational Psychologists are independent when they provide their professional views. However, they may be paid by Local Authorities, parents or others.
