Throughout her career, Liz has supported Doctoral Training Programmes for clinical psychologists through supervision of trainee clinical psychologists and other teaching, training and assessment roles.
Liz has a special interest in autism and the impact of cognitive differences on everyday functioning and behaviour. She is particularly interested in working with individuals and organisations to facilitate knowledge and awareness of autism and to design specific approaches for those working with individuals. Working with staff teams, Liz is often able to help in resolving complex issues concerning the care of people with autism and also in reducing vocational stress.
Liz is licensed by the National Autistic Society to use the Diagnostic Interview for Social and Communication Disorders (DISCO) and using this and other psychological assessments is able to carry out formal assessment and diagnosis. Through her assessment work, Liz aims to provide clear information to assist people with autism in important aspects of their daily lives.
Since setting up Psychologists for Autism, Liz has been developing her work with people with Asperger’s Syndrome and high functioning autism who may require support with aspects of health and well being or in aspects of employment or coping with transitions through the lifespan.
Liz is a chartered member of the British Psychological Society’s Division of Clinical Psychology and a registered member of the Health Professional Council.
