Dr. Louise Copp Associate Educational Psychologist
Louise has 7 years' experience as an Educational Psychologist, and for five years was resident in-house EP at a Bristol secondary school. This experience gives Louise a unique insight into the internal reality of SEN systems and provision in schools, which further informs her work with clients and our own APS practices. Louise is driven by a clear set of ethical values which, throughout her career, have facilitated positive change at an individual, school and Local Authority level. She has experience of: assessing individual needs; developing and delivering training packages; developing interventions in schools; re-structuring an SEN department; coordinating whole-school interventions for social communication and mental health needs; and has presented at two regional conferences on attachment and resilience.
