Dr Richard Skelton (Child & Educational Psychologist)

Dr Richard Skelton
BSc, MSc, DEdChPsy, CPsychol


Richard has worked as an Educational Psychologist across several Greater Manchester local authorities over the past 10 years. He regularly works across a wide range of age groups within nursery, primary, secondary, and specialist settings. While Richard developed an initial specialism within cognition and learning (especially neuropsychology), this has since branched into a more holistic interest approach, recognising that
“to really understand one area of need, you have to know the whole child”.

Richard’s interests now span across all areas, from anxiety and autism, to attachment and resilience. He constantly endeavours to improve his practice to enable children to reach their potential.

Seeing the great potential that high quality training can have for Psychologists and School Staff in improving outcomes for children, Richard has developed a passion to explore and develop methods which can enable highly impactful, accessible and useable training for all professionals.

Integrating psychology within the online training experience, Richard’s aim within EdPsychEd is to ensure that any professional who takes a course feels empowered and highly satisfied that they have developed new skills which will have a lasting impact to helping support and improve children’s lives.

Dr Jenny Dutton
BSc, DEdChPsy, CPsychol

Jenny has over 20 years’ experience of working with children, young people, their families and schools. Since qualifying as an Educational Psychologist in 2012, Jenny has worked in both local authority services and independent practices across the north-west.

Given the importance attached to professional development within the educational profession and her own interest in ensuring training promotes sustainable change and effective practice, Jenny’s doctoral thesis focused on Educational Psychologists' contribution as trainers within Children’s Services.

In 2018, Jenny embarked on her journey into independent practice and felt that this allowed her the freedom to find courses that connected her with other Educational Psychologists and enhanced her practice as a Psychologist.

With her drive for continuing her professional development and enthusiasm for sourcing quality CPD for herself and colleagues, creating EdPsychEd within the current climate seemed the natural next step.

Dr Lee Randall (Child & Educational Psychologist)

Dr Lee Randall
BSc, GTP, DEdChPsy, CPsychol


Lee has worked as an Educational Psychologist across Liverpool and Merseyside since 2013.
Following a previous career in secondary school teaching and mentoring, Lee has developed his initial interests in the impact of social deprivation on emotional and educational outcomes for children, into a far-reaching interest in all aspects of child and educational psychology across the age ranges.

Lee has worked on diverse projects ranging from developing and implementing nurture provisions for Early Years children with social and emotional difficulties, to developing autism training for secondary school staff. Lee is passionate about breaking down the barriers that can prevent children and young people from using education as a springboard to self-actualisation.

Lee’s passion for lifelong learning and the teaching career he left behind is what drove him to co-create EdPsychEd. He believes in the capacity of educational professionals to create the environment children need to thrive and is committed to making the EdPsychEd platform a potent driver for positive change in the education sector, through the empowerment of School Staff and Educational Psychologists.
