Dr Maria Jalmbrant, D.Clin.Psy. HCPC-reg Clinical Psychologist

Dr Jalmbrant started working with adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders as an Assistant Psychologist in 2002 as she came across a number of individuals within the Learning Disability Service who did not fit the traditional Learning Disability profile. After completing her D.Clin.Psy. at Royal Holloway University of London, she worked in general adult mental health at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, where she developed a special interest in diagnosing supporting adults with ASD as she found their needs were often misunderstood in the generic mental health service. After a short career break in research, she was keen to further her skills in the Neurodevelopmental area and went to work the National Adult Neurodevelopmental Service at the Bethlem Royal Hospital and the Maudsley Hospital in 2010. She was then given the opportunity to set up one of the first community-based psychology service specifically for adults with ASD and ADHD in Lewisham in 2012, which she ran until 2018. Here she developed a service model that seemed to provide most effective support to these client groups, by offering a range of individual or family therapeutic support or delivering intense psychological interventions with the help of trainee psychologists and assistant psychologists who were closely supervised.
