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
