Dr Sarah McCrimmon
DClinPsy, BSc(Hons), DipNeuro, BPS QiCN, CPsychol
I am a fully qualified, experienced and highly professional clinical neuropsychologist based in Brighton, Sussex. I provide specialist neuropsychological assessment, rehabilitation, therapy and counselling for adults with acquired brain injuries, dementia and/or neurological conditions across East and West Sussex.
What I Provide
- Neuropsychological Assessment
This is a comprehensive assessment of an individual's cognitive ('thinking') skills and can be used to identify strengths and weaknesses, contribute towards diagnosis (e.g. dementia) or provide recommendations for further rehabilitation.
- Neurorehabilitation, Therapy and Counselling
I have worked for many years in NHS rehabilitation services, and am highly experienced in helping individuals adjust to the consequences of brain injury or living with a neurological condition. I can provide specialist rehabilitation, counselling and therapy to help improve or manage the cognitive, emotional or behavioural changes that can cause distress for some individuals and their families.
- Supervision and Consultation
I am available to provide regular or ad hoc supervision and consultation to other psychologists and healthcare professionals. I am listed on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors, thereby qualified to supervise clinical psychologists completing the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology.

Who I See
Individuals, couples and families affected by:
- acquired brain injury (e.g. traumatic brain injury, stroke, hypoxic brain injury, encephalitis, hydrocephalus)
- long term neurological conditions (e.g. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy)
- mild cognitive impairment and dementia (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal, vascular, and Lewy body dementias)
- chronic health problems, long term conditions and changes in physical functioning
I also provide a service for individuals:
- who do not have a diagnosis, but are concerned about changes in their memory, thinking and/or language
- who would like to learn more about their cognitive strengths and/or weaknesses
- who wish to develop strategies to manage any cognitive difficulties they are experiencing
- who do not have a neurological condition but experience difficulties with depression, anxiety, panic, stress or anger
