Dr Steven Kemp
Consultant clinical neuropsychologist
BSc, D Clin Psychol, PG Diploma, AFBPsS
I am currently in clinical practice as a consultant clinical neuropsychologist at St James’ University Teaching Hospital, Leeds. I specialise in the assessment and treatment of brain injured patients. This involves understanding the neurocognitive, psychological and social impact of brain injury and neurological disease.
I routinely see brain injured patients for neuropsychological assessments in order to determine the effects of injury on cognitive functioning (ie memory and concentration), personality and behaviour and provide treatment and rehabilitation. I also see patients to assess and treat the psychological affects of injury or illness. For example, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression or psychological symptoms that can result from traumatic experiences or neurological illness.
I have a special clinical and research interest in; traumatic brain injury, memory disorders, effort or symptom validation testing, the neuropsychology of epilepsy, neuropsychological rehabilitation, dementia and the aetiology and psychological treatment of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) / functional neurological disorder (FND).
I have over twenty years’ experience in the field of clinical neuropsychology and I am the author of several recent publications. I am cited in the British Psychological Society (BPS) Directory of Chartered Clinical Psychologists and the BPS Directory of Expert Witnesses. I am listed on the BPS specialist register in clinical neuropsychology. I am a member of the Expert Witness Institute (EWI). I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
