Dr Sara Simblett’s Biography
About our clinical director
I am a clinical psychologist with a special interest in neuropsychology and neurorehabilitation. I trained in clinical psychology (completed a DClinPsy) at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, after being awarded a PhD and MSc in Neuropsychology from the University of Cambridge and the University of Bristol, respectively.
I am committed to providing a very high quality service that puts people’s individual needs at the heart of what we offer
I have spent some of my career to date, researching how to measure and facilitate adjustment to emotional, behavioural and cognitive problems following a diagnosis of a neurological condition such as an acquired brain injury (ABI), multiple sclerosis (MS) or epilepsy. The other part of my career has focused on providing assessment and treatment of psychological disorders. I have worked in community and inpatient neurorehabiliation services in the NHS and over the past couple of years, I set up a neuropsychological assessment clinic in the NHS to understand and rehabilitate cognitive difficulties amongst people with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. I continue to offer neuropsychological assessment and neurorehabiliation in a neuropsychiatry service within one of the leading NHS hospitals in London. Alongside my clinical work in the NHS, I have offered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and adult neuropsychology privately since 2018.
