Psychological Professions Week 2023: Dr Robert Johns

Dr Robert Johns, Psychological Professions Week
16 November 2023

As part of our Psychological Professions Week celebrations, colleagues working in a number of psychology-based roles have been sending in profiles, talking all about their current roles and career pathways.

We caught up with Dr Robert Johns, who spoke about his experience as a Senior Clinical Psychologist at Sheffield Children’s:

Which Service do you work in?

I work in Sheffield Children’s’ Neurodisability Psychology team, based at the Ryegate Children’s Centre.

What is your typical working week like – what do you do?

My role is really varied! I conduct autism assessments with multidisciplinary colleagues, psychology intervention with children and families to support them with their mental health in relation to neurodiversity such as autism or ADHD and develop resources for young people or parents. I also offer consultation to other professionals, parent workshops, training to professionals, school observations and cognitive assessments.

How did you get into the job?

Prior to my current role, I worked in IT and as a teacher. Whilst working in these roles, I found that my main interest was helping others understand how they see the world and how to navigate the ups and downs of life.

What do you like best about your role?

I work alongside a really supportive team, working with interesting and diverse children and families and have the chance to shine a positive light on neurodivergence!

We’d like to thank all of our colleagues working in psychological professions for the amazing work that they do!
