Dr. Louise Connor
BSc.(Hons), MSc., D.Psych., C.Psychol.
Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist

I am a Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist with a specialist interest in working with children, adolescents and adults with a range of developmental difficulties and associated emotional difficulties. I specifically work with people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) and the associated difficulties which these conditions can bring about. Since completing Clinical Psychology training at the Institute of Psychiatry, in 1994, I have specialised in working with children and adolescents with Learning Disabilities and ASDs, as well as providing a service for children and adolescents with emotional or behavioural difficulties. I completed my Doctorate in 1997, focussing on diagnostic issues relevant to adolescents with different developmental disorders. I worked as a member of a multidisciplinary assessment and diagnostic team as well as managing a team of Clinical Psychologists providing a service to adolescents with special needs, and their families for ten years. My work has extended, in recent years, to working with adolescents and adults with ASDs, and their families, specifically those with Asperger’s syndrome and High Functioning ASDs.

Having worked in the National Health Service until 2005, I have since worked in a specialist school for adolescents with ASDs and worked for a private multidisciplinary organisation prior to establishing my own independent practice in 2009.

I have carried out training in the use of a number of diagnostic assessment tools and have been conducting diagnostic assessments for twenty years. In addition, I have been trained in the use of a number of intervention techniques, although primarily use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Brief Solution Focussed Therapy (BSFT).

I receive regular supervision and ensure regular Professional Development, in accordance with the British Psychological Society and Health and Care Professionals Council requirements. I have Enhanced CRB Clearance and Professional Indemnity Insurance and ensure a high level of continuing professional development.
