Chartered and Registered Clinical Psychologist and an accredited Psychotherapist offering: personal injury medico-legal assessments of adults and young people, CBT and EMDR therapy and clinical supervision.
Expert witness medico legal work undertaken
I provide expert witness Medico Legal Reports in relation to the psychological impact of personal injury. My area of expertise is the assessment and treatment of symptoms of psychological trauma following events such as a road traffic, workplace or public place accident. This can include, but is not limited to, psychological trauma, anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and adjustment disorder. I offer related evidence based psychological interventions. I am professionally accredited with HCPC, BPS, BABCP and EMDR Association UK and Ireland.
I provide high quality, comprehensive medico-legal reports and have been instructed by both claimants and defendants. Standardized psychometric measures are used to assist in the psychological assessment process. Consideration is given to relevant issues such as pre-morbid personality, the possibility of under or over-reporting of psychological difficulties, fitness to work and return to work, capacity, treatment options, prognostic questions and the potential need for additional assessments.
