Dr Jessie Gough 

BA (Hons), DClinPsych,   

I am a Clinical Psychologist who has worked with adults and children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental conditions for more than 20 years. I am a registered practitioner psychologist with the health and care professions council (HPCP). I started my career working in a school for children with ASD and other related conditions. Since that time, I have worked assessing, diagnosing and helping both adults and children with ASD, other neuro developmental conditions and other mental health difficulties.  

Before moving into private practice, I worked for many years in the NHS across several different services. I have extensive experience of working with children and adolescents in several CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health service) teams. I have also worked in specialist teams for eating disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders and with young offenders. I have particular interest in working therapeutically with stress, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).   

During my career I have lived and worked in Asia and Europe, and currently divide my time between Italy and the UK. As a result, I understand the unique challenges that come with being an expat. I have witnessed first-hand the diverse health and education systems that different countries offer, and the challenges that navigating these different systems presents.  

Both my undergraduate degree and doctorate in clinical psychology were undertaken in the UK at Oxford University and the University of London. At Neurodiverse Online we ensure that all of all of our assessments are conducted by native English speakers and that the training undertaken, and assessment tools used are internationally recognised. You can feel confident that the assessment process is in line with those conducted in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and therefore that the results will be transferable; something that we understand is important if you are planning to return to live in your native country in the future.  

Individuals and families from all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds are welcome; as are all genders and sexualities.
