Clinical Neuropsychology Service
We are a specialist psychology service within the Islington Community Rehabilitation Team. We work with adults who have a neurological condition, such as a stroke, an acquired brain injury or multiple sclerosis.  
We provide three key services:
  • Neuropsychological assessment
  • Cognitive rehabilitation
  • Therapy sessions to support people in the process of adjustment
Many people can experience the following as a result of their illness or injury, which we may discuss in our sessions:
  • Difficulties with memory or thinking skills
  • Low mood or worry
  • Difficulties with adjustment
  • Concerns about getting back to work
For more information about our service, including how to refer, see the Islington Community Rehabilitation Team (ICRT) page.
In addition to the Clinical Neuropsychology Service, there is a small assessment service for patients seen in the neurology outpatient clinics at Whittington Hospital.

Range of services

Neuropsychological assessment - this involves completing some tasks and puzzles, and answering some questions in a quiet room with a member of the psychology team. This helps us to understand people’s thinking skills (known as cognition) better.
If you have been referred for a neuropsychological assessment, you do not need to do anything to prepare for this. An assessment can take about three hours. This will be completed at the Outlook Centre.
An assessment can cover:
  • Attention and concentration
  • Memory skills
  • Visuospatial skills
  • Language and verbal skills
  • Processing speed
The assessment is written as a report afterwards, and we will talk through any difficulties highlighted.

Cognitive rehabilitation - we can explore a range of activities to help manage any difficulties with your thinking and memory skills. For example, we might teach you some strategies to help remember telephone conversations.

Psychological therapy -
we can offer individual and group therapy sessions for people with a neurological condition. In the sessions, we would explore ways to aim to improve people’s mood and coping skills.
We use a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness.
