Dr Bogna Radlak is a fully qualified and accredited Clinical Psychologist, registered with the HCPC and chartered by the BPS. She has extensive clinical experience in neuropsychological assessment, rehabilitation and adjustment therapy to acute and chronic neurological conditions.
Bogna enjoys working therapeutically with individuals and their families who have been affected by various neurological conditions, to help them better understand, come to terms with and thrive in life despite their cognitive, emotional or behavioural difficulties. Through her work in various neurorehabilitation settings Bogna believes that it is possible to grow as a person and to develop new ways of coping with many challenges that inevitably come with acquired neurological conditions. These include but are not limited to acquired brain injury, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and functional neurological symptoms.
The main therapeutic approaches Bogna uses include cognitive rehabilitation, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Bogna’s therapeutic work is frequently also informed by other models of therapy such as Mindfulness and Schema Therapy.
Bogna has a particular interest in helping people to adjust well to their chronic/progressive neurological conditions, often working with individuals affected by cognitive problems (such as attention, memory, or reasoning difficulties), low self-esteem, anxiety/panic, anger management, low mood, interpersonal difficulties, fatigue management, pain management, and sleep difficulties. Bogna is also developing a keen interest in helping people overcome emotional difficulties following ICU and HDU procedures.
Bogna graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2010 with a first class honours in Psychology, having worked part- time in various support roles with people with severe and enduring mental health difficulties. She then completed a Master of Research Degree with Distinction, followed by a PhD programme at the University of Aberdeen, researching the effect of emotion perception difficulties on social participation and quality of life in people with Multiple Sclerosis. Bogna completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2017. She has worked in Psychology Services in the NHS and Private sector settings, and is now employed part-time as a Clinical Psychologist within an NHS Neuropsychology Service. Bogna enjoys providing consultation, advice and training to other psychologists as well as other health professionals.
