Dr Kelly Bryden

Clinical Neuropsychologist

“Some people find having a neuropsychological assessment interesting and mentally stimulating. For others, it can be quite stressful. My aim is to make the person feel as comfortable as possible and to use the assessment to provide information that can help them in their everyday life. “

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Kelly uses specially designed tasks to measure how a person’s thinking and memory is functioning compared to people of the same age. By looking at a person’s pattern of performance across these tasks, she is able to form a conclusion about a person’s strengths and weaknesses; how this may impact on their everyday functioning, and what may be the cause of any difficulties (e.g. underlying neurological disorders). Assessments also provide information about the strategies and treatments which may assist in everyday life.

Kelly has a wide variety of experience working with people of different ages, different conditions and with mild to severe levels of cognitive difficulties. She has worked in a range of medical fields including geriatrics and rehabilitation, neurology and psychiatry.
When she is not thinking about the brain and how it functions, Kelly enjoys being creative through art and dressmaking.
