Elly Hanson Sept 2022.jpg

I am a Clinical Psychologist and researcher, and I aspire to being part of the collective effort to reduce harms and injustice.

I purposively work across a variety of areas, making links across them:

  • Preventing abuse and trauma, and ameliorating their impact in child and adulthood - with a particular focus on sexual abuse

  • Evidence-based educational approaches that foreground autonomy, ethics, and good relationships

  • Psychologically-informed approaches to overarching issues such as the climate crisis, inequality, and corporate practice conducive to harm


I undertake consultation, research & analysis, training, and psychological assessments. I work with educators, police, social workers, policy-makers, national organisations and charities, and I am also an experienced therapist. Central to all my work is the application of research to practice & policy.

I am Research Director of the new PSHE Association initiative Fully Human.
