Dr. Philippa Hodson

Clinical Psychologist in Neuropsychology

Pippa has worked with clients with acquired brain injuries for over 10 years and has worked across a wide range of neurorehabilitation settings, from acute inpatient rehabilitation to long term follow up in the community. She has worked in both the NHS and the charity sector.

After qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 2019 she worked in a specialist inpatient brain injury rehabilitation hospital in Frenchay, Bristol. Recently she has moved to an outpatient Neuropsychology department. Pippa is skilled in assessment and formulation of clients with complex neuropsychological problems. She is also highly adept at working therapeutically to support people with acquired brain injury and their families. She works compassionately and collaboratively with clients, their families and other professionals involved in their care to help people come to terms with and live alongside acquired disabilities.

Pippa uses a range of Psychological models including ACT, compassion focused therapy, CBT, positive behaviour support and systemic therapy. Her choice of model and intervention is always individualised and driven by what would most suit each person she works with. Pippa has experience adapting standard psychological treatments to be accessible for people with cognitive and communication changes that occur as a result of an acquired brain injury. She has much experience working with co-morbid ABI and mental health difficulties, both those that were pre- existing and those which started post injury.

Pippa completed her MSc in Neuropsychology in 2012 and is currently working towards entry to the Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists.
