We’re delighted to announce that Avril McAlees has joined Shrewsbury Court Independent Hospital as a Forensic Psychologist. Avril brings over 20 years of experience as an HCPC registered Forensic Psychologist working in both inpatient and outpatient services, in general psychiatry, with those diagnosed with anxiety, depression, psychosis, and personality disorder.
Avril has worked with people across the age range, from adolescents to older age adults, and with both males and females. Her areas of special interest focus on identifying, assessing, and managing risk – particularly in relation to sexual offending, fire setting behaviours, stalking, and violence – notably in individuals with Learning Disability and Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
Avril commented, “I’m really looking forward to working with Wilson and the clinical team at Shrewsbury Court; given the challenging time we’re all facing as we experience the current pandemic, I’m positive that I can play an active role in supporting our patients with their mental wellbeing that will make a difference.”
