We meet on the second Tuesday of every month, 7:30pm to 9pm, at Drake House, 44 St. George’s Road, Wimbledon, SW19 4ED.
Group co-ordinator: Dr Noelle Blake
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist. I qualified in Ireland and worked for six years in Adult Mental Health services in Ireland and the UK. I developed an interest in acquired brain injury and neurological conditions at an early stage of my career, partly through the rewards of working with people with brain injury but also because of personal family experience. Between 1990 and 2014 I worked as a Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist in Sutton, Wandsworth and Croydon, primarily working in Community Neurorehabilitation and Assessment services. I enjoy working with groups and sharing knowledge and rehabilitation skills that help people feel more in control of their lives and optimistic about making positive changes.
In February 2014 I left my role in the NHS to work independently. Since then I have worked in independent practice as a clinical neuropsychologist. I also work as a tutor at the University of Surrey. I live in South London with my husband and energetic Irish Red Setter dog. I have two grown up daughters. In my spare time I enjoy yoga, singing, going to the cinema and theatre and shopping with my daughters.
