Dr Simon Lewis

Profile

 Consultant Clinical Psychologist 

I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist, working with adults, children and young people’s mental health.  I have experience in both an NHS and HM Prison Service setting, since 2001, gaining my doctoral qualification in 2007.  I have also provided expert witness services since 2011, providing reports to Court regarding Care Proceedings and giving evidence.  Further training I have undertaken includes EMDR (Level 1, 2 and 3), Clinical Supervision, DBT Skills and a Multi-Family MBT intervention programme. 

My training enables me to work across the lifespan from a variety of psychological models, applying theory and research in a range of settings. Clinically, I specialise in Systemic Consultation and Intervention: getting systems to work in the best interests of vulnerable young people, particularly Children in Care. My experience working within NHS CAMHS has encompassed assessment, formulation, intervention and evaluation within the full range of mental health, emotional and behavioural difficulties, including working with children and neurodevelopmental conditions 

My areas of expertise are Adverse Childhood Experiences and the impact of Trauma over the life course. I provide expert opinions in areas related to Family Court Proceedings, Intellectual Functioning, Psychological Assessments and Trauma Related Presentations.
