Dr Louise Lightfoot
Child & Educational Psychologist
Dr Louise Lightfoot, aka “Dr. Delightful', has worked with children, young people and their families in a variety of settings for more than 20 years. Louise is committed to empowering others to use psychology as a means of improving the lives of children and families. Having overcome social barriers in childhood, Louise is passionate about social mobility and believes the circumstances in which we are born with should not determine where we end up.
Louise has a BA in Education Studies, MEd in Psychology of Education and a Doctorate in Education and Child Psychology. She is an expert in the field of Looked-After Children and hard-to-reach groups. She has a keen interest in attachment and trauma and is also a published author, having developed a series of commercial therapeutic children’s books, as well as contributing to books and resources for various charities and magazines in relation to adult mental health.
Typically, Louise works online with children, and through adults at school and at home; and therefore an understanding of the whole lifespan development is invaluable.
