Professional Services


Expert Witness Services

I offer assessments and reports as an Expert Witness with regard to the psychological impact of trauma.  I have undertaken the British Psychological Society's Expert Witness Training Levels 1, 2 & 3 and I have completed the Bond Solon Expert Witness Certificate so that I can offer a gold standard service to the legal profession.  I have extensive experience working in the NHS with adults suffering the effects of trauma, ranging from one-off traumatic events in adulthood, through to complex trauma in adults resulting from childhood abuse in all its forms.   

In my private practice I have been assessing clients and writing expert witness reports for a number of agencies since 2013 as well as providing reports directly either for solicitors acting on behalf of the claimant, or as a single joint expert.  I am listed on the British Psychological Society's Directory of Expert Witnesses. Please contact me for details of fees and to discuss possible referrals.

Supervision & Training Therapies 

I offer supervision individually or in groups to mental health professionals at all stages of their development and can offer training therapies to those training to deliver psychological therapy.  Students and trainees can access therapy for a reduced fee, so please mention this when enquiring.

I am particularly interested in setting up supervision groups for Graduate Psychologists looking to take their first steps onto the Clinical Psychology career path.
