Judith Carter

Educational Psychologist and Director

Judith is an HCPC (Health Care Professionals Council) registered Educational Psychologist (EP) and Director of Willow Tree Learning. She has worked as a Specialist EP (inclusion & autism) in Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and was Senior Adviser Inclusion SEN-D working within a Local Authority on education strategy and school improvement. It was here that she trained as an Ofsted inspector.

Willow Tree Learning was created as an opportunity to directly support schools, colleges and settings to become more responsive to their learner community. It is a values led service, offering high quality practical advice and support. Intervention is bespoke and can relate directly to individual children and families, or be part of a whole school ‘systems’ review, or a targeted aspect of improvement and workforce development.

Willow Tree Learning works with other HCPC registered Educational Psychologists who share the values and principles for practice described above.
