Personal profile

Biography

Fergus joined the Department of Clinical Psychology as a Senior Research Fellow in December 2014, and is now a Clinical Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology.  Fergus completed clinical psychology training at UEA in 2000 and his post-graduate diploma in CBT at Oxford in 2004. He was formerly the Clinical Lead for the Cambridge Centre for Paediatric Neuropsychological Rehabilitation (where he maintains an honorary position) and lead psychologist at the Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation.

Within the UEA Clinical Psychology doctoral programme, Fergus is a senior research tutor and co-lead of the Neuropsychology module. Fergus’ clinical and research interests are in neuropsychological rehabilitation, specifically self-regulation, identity, psychological therapy/CBT and asset-based community approaches following brain injury. He has published a number of papers and book chapters on these topics and been invited to present his work both nationally and internationally.

Fergus is currently involved in research relating to family and caregivers of people with brain injuries (children young people and adults) or dementia, and social connection and wellbeing, mainly from a qualitative perspective. He is currently co-leading an NIHR RfPB study exploring the potential of a creative story telling approach for family adaptation to life after brain inujury. Previous grants include: an NIHR CLAHRC funded study of transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation for self-regulation problems after ABI, NIHR RfPB funded studies of an intervention for everyday memory and planning problems in people with ABI, and the feasibility of an Arts for Health approach to improving confidence and well-being post-stroke. Fergus holds a number of honorary positions being a member of the BPS Division of Neuropsychology’s Policy Unit, the Board of Associate Editors of Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, and is a committee member for AnchorPoint, the WFNR Organisation for Psychological Research in Stroke (OPSYRIS) and the Norfolk and Waveny Acquired Brain Injury Network.
