About Dr Paul Kelly

Dr Paul Kelly is a Chartered Educational and Child Psychologist working in the North West of England. With a Doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology from the University of Manchester, he is registered to practise with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and is a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Association of Educational Psychologists (AEP).  Paul is an honorary tutor of the University of Manchester and has presented at national and regional conferences.  He has advised the media on psychological issues,  appeared on national radio and television, and writes psychological articles for an online magazine.

With eighteen years' experience of working with children, young people and their families, Paul applies psychology to real-life problems to effect positive change.  Children and young people may need help with their learning, behaviour, relationships or psychological well-being. Parents or teachers often recognise that a child is having difficulties at home or in school, and feel they need extra help; Paul can offer a range of support, help and advice including consultations, assessments, reports or intervention work and therapy for children aged from birth to 19 years. With three children of his own, Paul can offer empathic advice based on research literature, supported by practical experience, providing a professional and friendly service. Requests for involvement can be made directly to Paul by parents or schools (state and independent).

Paul has significant experience and understanding in working with children and teenagers with a range of difficulties and special educational needs including dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADD, ADHD, DAMP, ASD, DCD, Asperger's syndrome, Tourette's syndrome, oppositional defiance disorder and pathological demand avoidance disorder.  He also works with children, young people and their families in the areas of emotional well-being, depression, anxiety and attachment.
