Dr Chris Zacharia

                                                        Educational Psychologist

I am an HCPC Registered Educational Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, with over twenty years of experience and a PhD.

I am currently a specialist assessor for the following organisations:

Adults (18 years+)

I assess students at universities in support of a DSA, trainee accountants taking professional examinations and employees who have challenges at work and require reasonable adjustments to their work from their employer.   Some of the organisation supported are the Metropolitan Police, Fire and Rescue Service, NHS, Home Office, HMRC, Ministry of Defence and High Profile Financial Institutions in London.

Areas of Expertise

I am a specialist in Diagnostic Assessments for Specific Learning Difficulties and offer the following:

  • Remote & Face-to-face Assessments

  • Dyslexia

  • Dyspraxia (coordination challenges)

  • Dysgraphia (handwriting and fine-motor difficulties)

  • Dyscalculia (number concept)

  • ADHD (paper screening and computer assessment of symptoms)

  • Assessment of self-esteem, anxiety and depression

  • 3 Session Solution Focused Brief Therapy to support wellbeing and mental health

Remote Assessments

The Skype assessment is a full diagnostic assessment, exactly the same as the face-to-face one of the same duration and is fully accepted by examination boards, universities and employers.  It helps individuals interact with the assessor in a video-linked setting from home.  You only require a good computer/laptop with a built-in webcam and internet connection. 

My fee is payable in advance of the assessment through a bank transfer.  The assessment will take up to 2.5 hours and help diagnose specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia and where relevant, paper screenings for dyspraxia and ADHD-type symptoms. There will be verbal feedback immediately following the assessment and the report will usually be e-mailed the following week. This will include recommendations for universities, examination boards and employers to accommodate any specific learning difficulties. 

I work from Hamilton House in London, near Kings Cross and Euston stations and also remotely from the University of Kent in Canterbury. I am a sought after assessor because of my professional, warm and friendly approach.
