Dr Joanne Steer PsychD BSc


I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and I specialise in working with children, young people and their families.


I graduated from the University of Kent at Canterbury with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology.  I subsequently went on to the University of Surrey and completed my Clinical Psychology doctorate in 2004.  The focus of my thesis was looking at the attachment relationships of children with a diagnosis of ADHD.


In 2009 I co-authored Helping Kids and Teens with ADHD in School.  A Workbook for Classroom Support and Managing Transitions, to purchase a copy visit https://amzn.to/3hDhUIk 

In 2019 I wrote a new workbook to support young people struggling with the stress of exams; Supporting Kids & Teens with Exam Stress in School, to purchase a copy visit  https://amzn.to/3v2nM1P 

In 2021 I edited and contributed to Understanding ADHD in Girls & Women, to purchase a copy visit https://amzn.to/3wkFjTa 


I lead the Emotional Health Service (CAMHS Team) in Kingston and Richmond in South West London based within Achieving for Children.  Alongside this work I operate an small independent practice providing consultation and training to professionals, particularly school staff, and expert media consultation.  I am able to offer a limited number of assessments for neurodevelopmental conditions to children, young people and adult women.
