Leading provider of psychological services

Education

Supporting young people through supporting you

With outcomes for young people depending on you and your organisation, staff have not only a huge responsibility but a great opportunity. Through prompt assessment and intervention, you can ensure a young person facing difficulties receives the resources, SEN support and services they need to fully benefit from education.

To do this effectively, you may periodically need access to Educational Psychologists, but due to national shortages, this can be challenging.

At Psychology Direct, we have the solution.

An extensive network of over 1000 psychologists, with one of the largest pools of Educational Psychologists available. A commitment to finding you a professional with the right area of specialist knowledge and experience, and to doing so in a timely manner, as some situations may be urgent or fast-evolving. High quality reports, which outline assessment outcomes, clear measurable objectives and your Educational Psychologist’s professional and practical recommendations, in clear, user-friendly language.

As the UK’s leading provider of Independent Educational Psychology Services we understand how important your Educational Psychologist is to you, in terms of their expertise and guidance, the relationship you build, and the impact on the life of the young person at the heart of this. That’s why we put our heart and soul into finding you the right EP, while taking all the administration out of your hands.
