Qualifications and experience:
I am Dr Steven Kemp, I hold the degree of Bachelor of Science (Psychology – First Class) awarded from the University of Hull and the degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology awarded from the University of Leeds.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
I am currently in clinical practice as a Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist at St. James’s University Hospital, Leeds. I specialize in the assessment and treatment of brain injured patients. This involves understanding the psychological, social and cognitive impact of brain injury and neurological disease. I routinely see brain injured patients for neuropsychological assessments in order to determine the effects of injury on cognitive functioning (i.e. memory and concentration), personality and behaviour and provide rehabilitation. I also see patients to assess and treat the psychological effects of injury or illness. For example, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression or coping difficulties that can result from traumatic experiences or illness.
I have a special clinical and research interest in; traumatic brain injury, test effort and malingering, the neuropsychology of epilepsy, neuropsychological rehabilitation, dementia and the psychological treatment of medically unexplained symptoms (MUS).
I have over twenty years’ experience in the field of Clinical Neuropsychology and I am the author of several recent publications. I am cited in the British Psychological Society (BPS) Directory of Chartered Clinical Psychologists and the BPS Directory of Expert Witnesses. I am a member of the Expert Witness Institute (EWI).
