Dr Vanessa Huke

Clinical Neuropsychologist

The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about

I consider myself to be a creative practitioner. I take a non-judgemental approach and am integrative in my work. Throughout my career I have been fascinated by the interplay between the brain and behaviour. This interest has developed through my undergraduate degree in Neuropsychology, my MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

Holding in mind the importance of the therapeutic relationship, I create a safe space that the client is comfortable with. My background includes interventions for neurodevelopmental disorders in children, young people and adults, including those with autism; and systemic work with their families. I also have extensive experience working with children and adolescents resistant to change.

I taking an eclectic approach in therapy, drawing upon Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy and CBT. I have also conducted a variety of neuropsychological assessments, and I enjoy working collaboratively with other professionals and colleagues towards agreed therapy and rehabilitation goals.

Outside of work, I enjoy running, weight lifting, and spending time with my family and friends.
