Dr Vanessa Huke

Clinical Psychologist Specialising in Neuropsychology

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 gained great interest in the interplay between the brain and behaviour. This interest has developed through my undergraduate degree in Neuropsychology and MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience.

I use a variety of therapeutic models, including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy and CBT.

Holding in mind the importance of the therapeutic relationship, I create a safe space that the client is comfortable with. I have conducted a variety of neuropsychological assessments, and I enjoy working collaboratively with other professionals and colleagues towards agreed therapy and rehabilitation goals.

My PhD thesis investigated the prevalence of Autism Spectrum Disorder traits in eating disordered populations and explored clinical outcomes associated with this.

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