Psychology Experts are a team of clinical psychologists with extensive experience of working within the family and criminal courts. We also work with a forensic psychiatrist with specialist skills in working with mentally disordered offenders. We are based across different locations covering the South of England and Wales.

Through our training and experience, we are able to apply a broad range of theoretical models and evidence-based assessment tools to predicting human behavioural risk, both in the family and criminal courts. Collectively, we have a diverse range of training and expertise and we are able to offer assessments of both adults, child and complex family problems.
