Educational Psychologist

Vicki Ferguson

Vicki is an Educational Psychologist with a wide range of experience in supporting the development of children and young people up to the age of 25, including those with additional needs.

She helps school staff and parents understand how their child/student learns best and how to respond to their cognitive strengths and areas of difficulty, as well as supporting their social and emotional development. She uses strengths-based video feedback interventions to develop receptive relationships between children and other people.

Since 2017 she has specialised in supporting children whose social, emotional or mental health needs mean they are unable to attend school, working closely with schools and families to create tailored support plans to help them get back into school.

Vicki has a BSc in Psychology at The University of Sheffield and was awarded a Doctorate in Applied Educational Psychology from Newcastle University in 2016.

Patient Testimonials

“Coming to see Dr Westgarth was a very positive experience for us. He immediately established a good relationship with my son who was experiencing a number of difficulties at the time. With Dr Westgarth’s help and guidance my son is now making excellent progress both at school and at home and we’re delighted with this positive outcome.”
