About Learning Recovery

Dr Beverley Steffert

I am a Chartered Psychologist and Neuropsychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.

After completing my PhD degree at London University (at The Institute of Psychiatry with Professor Hans Eysenck) I lectured at London University (Birkbeck College)  in Psychology (cognitive, biological and educational) which I continued for 20 years. For some of that time I also acted as a Consulting Psychologist for The Dyslexia Institute, assessing Dyslexics. For the last ten years I have developed Learning Recovery which assesses and treats Dyslexia, Dyspraxia (Developmental Coordination Disorder), ADHD/ADD and Asperger’s syndrome.

I also specialise in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and have clients who need assessments and treatment for the trauma of road accidents and other disasters.

Treatments include Neurofeedback, a brain training technique which shows the individual how to regulate their brainwaves and to activate the under responsive networks. This is sometimes combined with transcranial direct stimulation. Both are helpful for Specific Learning Difficulties as well as the consequences of traumatic experiences.

Five years ago I joined a neurologist, Dr Griesz-Brisson in a clinic in Harley Street, which specialises in brain trauma and other psychological and  neurodegenerative  disorders.

I am a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of The British Psychological Society. Also a Neuropsychologist registered with the BPS

A member of the British Neuroscience Society

A member of The European Society for Post Traumatic Stress

Courses I have taught include:

Biological Bases of Psychology, Animal Behaviour, Memory and Learning, Special Needs Courses for Teachers and Parents, Cognitive Psychology, Speech Styles (psycholinguistics), Attachment Theory, Sex and gender relationships, Overcoming Stress.

I do a bi-annual course on Neurofeedback with Tony Steffert and Professor Kropotov – see www.qeeg.co.uk

Rhythms of Love

Why Women Want to Talk About it and Men Don’t Want to Do it

Based on original research into 3000 couples, this is a book about personal growth and development within relationships and an explanation of sexual strategies and the dynamics of relationships within the framework of contemporary psychological thought. All couples progress through different stages in this relationship, the balance of power fluctuating constantly – and so creating conflict of one sort or another. By understanding the influences on a relationship, by “returning your wavelengths”, redefining your needs and communicating them, greater intimacy can be achieved.

Handbook of Clinical QEEG and Neurotherapy

Chapter 12: Rhythms of Dyslexia: EEG, ERP and Neurofeedback

This book is an essential resource describing a wide range of approaches and technologies in the areas of quantitative EEG (QEEG) and neurotherapy including neurofeedback and neuromodulation approaches.

It emphasizes practical, clinically useful methods, reported by experienced clinicians who have developed and used these approaches first hand. These chapters describe how the authors approach and use their particular combinations of technology, and how clients are evaluated and treated. This resource, which is encyclopedic in scope, provides a valuable and broad, yet sufficiently detailed account, to help clinicians guide the future directions in client assessment and neurotherapeutic treatment. Each contribution includes literature citations, practical information related to clinical interventions, and clinical outcome information.
