About Psychology Direct



“Psychology Direct have been providing Educational Psychologist services in the form of statutory assessments for Norfolk CC since May 2019 and their reports have been invaluable in helping us provide quality EHC Plans for children, young people and families

During that time, we have found Psychology Direct to be reliable, efficient, flexible, cost effective, proactive and totally empathetic to our needs and their warm, polite and hardworking approach makes our working relationship easy.

I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other Local Authorities.”

For Psychologists

I have been working with Psychology Direct since 2016 and have always found them to be efficient and easy to work with.  The coordinators plan visits for me on dates I provide and I have never been without work when I want it.  All the team are lovely – so friendly and professional and go out of their way to make my life straightforward when I am doing work for them. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting work which is flexible and well organised by a great team.

“Psychology Direct provides the Trust with a comprehensive and reliable service. All educational psychologists have completed in depth and accurate assessments and produced detailed reports within a couple of weeks of their visit. A high level of professionalism and communication  has been evident since the beginning of the SLA.’’

“I started using PD about six years ago after finding the company on the internet. I found staff to be helpful and informative and their range of experts to be second to none. Enquiries are responded to promptly. Reports are delivered securely and on time. In fact many of my colleagues use PD now. They do take the hard work out of locating relevant available experts.”

I have worked with Psychology Direct as their associate for several years now. I find the staff to be the most helpful and supportive.

I hugely appreciate this level of support because it makes the process of working on a case stress free for me. Whenever there are any case complications, Psychology Direct are always on board to help me with negotiating the most suitable solutions for all parties.

“I would like to congratulate PSYCHOLOGY DIRECT on their rebranding. As one of Gloucestershire’s busiest criminal practices we have instructed Psychology Direct on many occasions. I have found that by contacting Psychology Direct my colleagues and I save time by not having to make lots of phone calls as they can offer a wide range of expert psychiatrists local to us allowing us to select the most suitable expert available to deal with our case expeditiously. The complexity of some of the cases we deal with is not an issue as Psychology Direct always have an expert available and suitably qualified to deal with it and they are equally as happy to undertake the assessments at prisons, our offices or if necessary at the client’s home. Psychology Direct aim to provide most reports within two to four weeks of instruction and have never let us down and have been known to return a report in less than one week if you’re on a tight deadline. My colleagues and I will continue to use your services and do not hesitate to recommend you to others.”
