Sam forms an integral part of NCPS's specilaist Austism Assessment and Diagnosis Service.  She has completed postdoctoral study (PGDip in Clinical Paediatric Neuropsychology at University College London). This specialist qualification provides her with expertise in clinical paediatric neuropsychology, including neurodevelopment disorders, and additional clinical training in the assessment and treatment of young people with language, memory, attention and/or executive functioning (planning and organisation) difficulties.


Sam has over 25 years experience in working with children, adults and families experiencing distress as a result of neurodevelopmental difficulties, significant life events and/or illness.  She works part time within the NHS as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in an inpatient Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). She has extensive knowledge and skill in the assessment and treatment of young people (and their family) experiencing problems such as Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Psychosis and Eating Disorders. Often these difficulties are as a result of traumatic events and/or health conditions that affect not only the individuals coping and recovery but also other family members.


Sam's professional training and experience provides her with a unique set of skills and expertise with which to support individuals and families to identify and manage the consequences of accident or illness; she is passionate about using these skills to help children with neurodevelopmental difficulties achieve their potential, and to reduce the distress felt by young people and families following traumatic events.
