Kenny Pang joined Richardson Care in August 2020, initially getting to know the service users with a short-term role as a Care Support Worker before joining the psychology team.

Kenny works with service users at The Richardson Mews who have acquired brain injuries, and those at 23 Duston Road, who have learning disabilities or a dual diagnosis.

As an Assistant Psychologist, Kenny’s role includes completing psychological assessments of service users and preparing appropriate cognitive and well-being plans. These are overseen by Consultant Clinical Psychologist and head of the team, Dr Pedro Areias Grilo.

Kenny supports service users by implementing the psychological aspects of the care plan, which include positive behaviour support, group therapy, relaxation sessions and cognitive behaviour therapy based interventions. He devises quizzes and memory games as well as adding variety to the guided imagery for the relaxation sessions. The sessions are designed to meet the needs of individual service users, stimulating different parts of the brain, improving memory, regulating mood and helping to better manage emotions.

Kenny’s first impressions of Richardson Care are the professionalism of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) of managers and therapists with a well-structured psychology team. He says: “It’s clear that the service is holistic and very person-centred, putting the varied needs of the service users first.” When asked about his favourite aspects of his role, Kenny said: “I particularly enjoy analysing the data and working out treatment plans as well as spending time with the service users and seeing their cognition improve.”

In addition to his role at Richardson Care, Kenny volunteers at a Cruse bereavement counselling service, a charity providing counselling and emotional support for young people and at a crisis café. His experience also includes work as a Support Worker at The National Autistic Society, mentoring vulnerable adults and as a Special Constable at Northamptonshire Police. Outside work, Kenny enjoys physical training, team sports, music and is an avid reader.
