Psychological Assessment & Reports:
Assessments can take several hours and may therefore require more than 1 appointment. Following assessment and assuming any / all additional relevant information is available, the completed report can take between 2- 4 weeks to produce. Assessments are charged from £90/hr. plus travel and will include time spent in preparation, reading the bundle,, interpretation,and writing up. Accurate timescales and fees can be provided on an individual case by case basis.
I have completed training by the British Psychological Society as well as Bond Solon in Expert Witness work: assessment and report writing for court including court attendance / cross examination. I work independently as well as for agencies such as Willis Palmer, Psychology Experts and Medical Reports Ltd. in the areas of Family Law, Personal Injury and some Criminal cases. I work for defendants, claimants and joint instructions.
