Dr Nicola Scott, Clinical Psychologist
I am a Clinical Psychologist with 14 years of post-doctoral experience in clinical practice. I work with children, young people and adults. I can help with mental health difficulties, coping with medical conditions, support during life transitions such as divorce and separation, becoming a parent or returning to work. I also provide paediatric neuropsychological assessment and neurorehabilitation. I work with a number of evidence based therapy models. I work with people with or without learning difficulties or sensory impairments. As well as reactive services, I also provide proactive services around increasing motivation, increasing self esteem and confidence and understanding your brain function. I hope to hear from you soon.

I have therefore provided psychological services to thousands of people over the years.
I have published research and presented at international conference. I have provided teaching and training on various university courses. I have supervised and line managed other Psychologists.
