She has a BSc(Hons) Applied Psychology (First Class), MSc Forensic Psychology (Distinction) and a PG Cert. in Advanced Research Methods (Distinction).

For ten years, Max worked for the National Probation Service in the South West, her primary role being the assessment and treatment of sexual offenders. Max returned to the north in 2011 and for five years worked as Business Manager for Dr Clive Reading, whom she first met 20 years earlier when they were both members of the Northern Circuit Domestic Violence Steering Group.

Kelly Paddock - Managing Director

Kelly started her employment in Information Technology, working for an IT Training Company in Macclesfield. Starting her role as the company administrator, Kelly progressed to become one of the companies training advisors (after completing her D32/D33 certificates) and enjoyed training people who wished to return to work in new skills.

Kelly left that company after 8 years hoping to find a new challenge and was, in 2004, hired by Dr Clive Reading, Consultant Psychologist, as his PA. During her time working with Dr Reading Kelly learnt about the ins and outs of family law assessments from a psychological perspective and grew an understanding of what solicitors and clients require when involved in these proceedings.

Jess Graham - Office Manager

Jess worked with Kelly and Maxine at a previous firm and when Target started to expand she was the first port of call to see if she would wish to work alongside us again luckily, she said yes. Jess is a reliable, efficient and friendly addition to the team.

In her spare time, Jess is currently renovating her new home and enjoys spending time with her friends and family.

What Kelly has to say about Jess: "Jess is an excellent addition to the team I am very happy to be working with her again - she is a perfect right hand woman".
