Hello, I'm

Dr Rachel Irwin.

Clinical Psychologist

I’m a clinical psychologist, which means I have obtained extensive academic and professional qualifications, and peer-reviewed experience to diagnose and treat children with psychological, behavioural, and cognitive disorders. I also have a PhD and post-doctoral training in neuropsychology – a specialist field of psychology that investigates the relationship between the brain and behaviour.

I specialise in child assessments relating to cognition, learning, ADHD and autism spectrum disorder for children aged between 6 to 16.

I have a personal – yet professional – approach to private practice. As well as being a clinical psychologist, I am also a mother of three amazing children, a wife, and an active member of the community. I know the pressures life can throw at you, and am well known for my amiable and approachable manner in helping families navigate their way through life’s challenges.

I am passionate about working with families and children to foster happiness, confidence, acceptance, and fun.  

My ethical responsibilities.
