Dr Ceri Trevethan is a fully qualified and accredited Clinical Psychologist, registered with the HCPC and chartered by the BPS. She is an experienced clinician and academic who specialises in neuropsychological assessment and rehabilitation, trauma and neuropsychological medicolegal work.
Ceri enjoys working alongside individuals and families to better understand the specific impact of acquired brain injury or neurological disorder on their abilities, emotions, behaviour, activities and identity. Ceri believes strongly that supporting people to understand more about their unique pattern of strengths and difficulties following a brain injury enables them to better adjust to the changes they experience, develop effective management strategies, and move forwards towards a more enjoyable and fulfilling life.
Ceri specialises in all aspects of acquired brain injury and neurological disorder – often working with people affected by memory and attention problems, anxiety, depression, sleep difficulties, fatigue and managing anger after brain injury. She has particular interests in adjustment to brain injury and illness, as well as the impact of psychological trauma linked to acquired brain injury. Ceri’s early career experiences of working with people affected by very severe brain injury at the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability in Putney, taught her the importance of remaining hopeful and positive, as well as working collaboratively to enable people to reach their full potential.
Ceri has expertise in neuropsychological medicolegal work. She is an experienced expert witness specialising in neuropsychological evidence of whether an acquired brain injury has occurred as well as the neuropsychological consequences of acquired brain injury – including consequences of accidents and clinical negligence. Ceri engages in regular training to further her knowledge and expertise. She is certified as an expert witness by the University of Aberdeen School of Law.
Ceri graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2000 with a first class honours in Psychology, having worked part-time in a range of care jobs during her studies. She then completed a PhD in Neuropsychology, researching rehabilitation from visual problems linked to acquired brain injury. Ceri completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Edinburgh in 2009. After working in neuropsychology and adult mental health settings, she completed a post-graduate diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Glasgow (with merit) in 2016.
