About Dr Graham Tyler
Dr Graham Tyler has worked in Psychology since the late 1990s. He started out working in Organisational Psychology. He was originally trained in the UK where he studied for a BSc (Hons) Psychology at the University of London and then a MSc in Occupational Psychology at the University of Nottingham. He won the British Psychological Society award for Scientific Contribution to Occupational Psychology and thereafter relocated to the United Arab Emirates where he managed a Psychometric Testing Consultancy and taught for the University of Leicester in Dubai and Saudi Arabia.
After 3 years in the Middle East, he received a double scholarship award to undertake his PhD in Psychology at the University of Queensland, Australia. Following this, he moved to Asia where he set up PsyAsia International in Hong Kong and Singapore. Under his leadership, PsyAsia International is a multi-award-winning international organisation, especially known for its ethical, client-centred passion for client success and dedication to the competent practice of psychometric testing in Asia.
Having worked on a charitable mission in the Philippines with people suffering from Neurological disorders, Dr Tyler developed an interest in Neurology and Neuropsychology and hence returned to Australia to undertake a 2-year additional Masters in Clinical Neuropsychology at Macquarie University, where he had been awarded the Vice Chancellor’s International Scholarship. During this second Masters degree, Dr Tyler was never awarded anything less than a distinction in taught course assessed units.
His clinical neuropsychology practice was initially supervised at the Macquarie University Psychology Clinic and then at one of the world’s leading teaching hospitals, Liverpool Hospital in NSW. As one of Australia’s most multi-cultural hospitals, Dr Tyler assessed a large number of patients from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds and engaged in many interpreter-assisted neuropsychological assessments. During his practice at Liverpool, Dr Tyler rotated through Aged Care, Neurology and Brain Injury specialties, and was noted for his ability to establish rapport with even the most difficult patients, his awareness of the most up-to-date knowledge and practice in the field, as well as his dedication to ensuring patients understand their results and how they apply to their everyday life. He continues to hold the belief that accessible and meaningful feedback is crucial, alongside workable rehabilitation strategies where appropriate.
He completed his supervised transition to Clinical Neuropsychology with a Paediatric rotation at the famous Westmead Children’s Hospital. Since then, he has practiced Clinical Neuropsychology, primarily in Asia, from our bases in Hong Kong and Singapore whilst, more recently, the pandemic has seen him undertake mainly online or teleneuropsychological assessment (i.e., remote neurocognitive screening assessments). As a consequence, he works with clients globally, using our secure, modern online assessment systems.
With his background in both Clinical Neuropsychology and Organisational Psychology, Dr Tyler is rare in his ability to combine the two disciplines and assist those who are looking to return to work following brain trauma, or those who are undergoing neurological issues and need assistance with compensatory or rehabilitation interventions for work. In addition to his current clinical caseload, Dr Tyler continues to train and consult in Organisational Psychology and Psychometrics, teaches and assesses for the BPS Level 1 & 2 RQTU Psychometric Testing Qualifications using innovative, cutting-edge learning strategies, and is the driving force behind PsyAsia International’s Online Training in Neuropsychology.
Dr Tyler holds professional registration as a Psychologist with AHPRA/Psychology Board of Australia, and with the Hong Kong Psychological Society. He is an Associate Fellow of the Hong Kong and British Psychological Societies and a Full Member of the BPS Division of Neuropsychology.
