Introduction
My name is Dr Gary Lavan. I work as BPS Chartered Educational Psychologist and HCPC registered practitioner psychologist in the UK.

I have specific interests in Autism, and learning delays, and use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Challenging Behaviour, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Dyslexia, and many other theories and approaches in my work - all of which I talk about in this site.
