Dr Steven Kemp
Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist
BSc, D Clin Psychol, PG Diploma, AFBPsS
I am a Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist and Chartered Clinical Psychologist. I am an Honorary NHS Consultant. I accept private referrals for neuropsychological examinations, rehabilitation advice and support, psychological treatment and medico-legal instructions.
The speciality of clinical neuropsychology involves understanding the neurocognitive, psychological and social impact of brain injury and neurological disease, and appropriate treatment and rehabilitation.
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 effects 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, dementia, the neuropsychology of epilepsy, transient epileptic amnesia (TEA) accelerated long term forgetting (ALF) the neuropsychology of neurological disorders and neuropsychological rehabilitation. I also have clinical experience and research publications in the field of functional neurological disorder (FND) / functional cognitive disorder (FCD).
I have over 25 years’ experience in the field of clinical neuropsychology and I am the author of many 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 (SRCN). I am a member of the Expert Witness Institute (EWI). I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
