“If any of my clients require a psychological treatment programme I will always make an initial enquiry with Psychology Direct Ltd. I have worked with Psychology Direct Ltd for several years and the service provided is always delivered with an excellent professional approach and in a timely manner. The Psychologists provided will have the relevant expertise to provide an initial assessment and potential treatment programme going forward for my clients. All reports provide detailed updates on the client’s progress and response to treatment throughout the programme from the 1st therapy session to point of discharge.”
Ann Johnson, RGN - Case Manager
“I have worked with / for PD for several years now. What makes PD special is their staff! PD staff go further and make an extra effort to help their experts. With PD you know they’re out there for you not just to get you to do the job.”
Dr E. F. AFBPsS - Consultant Counselling and Psychotherapeutic Psychologist
“During my time at Psychology Direct I have enjoyed the warm and friendly work environment, even as the company has grown. My colleagues have always been supportive and subsequently there is a good team atmosphere, with everyone working towards the same goal of helping those in need of psychiatric or psychological assessments.”
Dan - Client Manager
“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.”
Solicitor - Steven Young & Co Solicitors
“Psychology Direct have provided 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 days of their visit. A high level of professionalism and communication has been evident since the beginning of the SLA.”
Principal - Maltby Redwood Academy
It is great passing on a case to someone you can trust & knowing the next thing you will hear is that we have suggested appointment dates for our clients! It makes my life a lot easier!
Chloe Ellis - Healthcare Management
“I first used Psychology/Psychiatry Direct some years ago when I needed a Dr from outside our local area and my usual lines of enquiry were fruitless. I have continued to PD thereafter due to the professional and excellent service I have received each time I have required assistance. I have required a number of experts who have exact expertise and I have always been provided with choices of experts who meet my needs.
It is invaluable to defence solicitors to be able to work with agencies who appreciate the importance of the time frames we invariably work within. The quotes provided have always contained the information needed to apply for prior authority (which is the case in the vast majority of our work). When information required from ourselves is missing, staff are always quick to make contact and obtain what is needed, so quotes can be provided swiftly.
I have to at this point to give special mention to Client manager Ellen Jessup-Dunton, who has on numerous occasions assisted me, going above and beyond what I would expect in helping me through the entire process of obtaining a report.
I would however extend my gratitude to all the staff I have dealt with, as each and everyone has always been extremely helpful.
I would not hesitate to recommend PD to those working within the criminal justice system.”
Paralegal - Albin and Co. solicitors
“I have had the pleasure of working closely with Psychology Direct, as one of their associates, for over five years now. Psychology Direct is without doubt the most efficient, most supportive, stable and user-friendly service I have worked with since starting my private psychology consultancy in 2012. It is very clear from working with them that the service is led by people who have a solid understanding of psychology and psychological therapy. Their knowledge and client centred approach has been instrumental to the development of extremely good communication lines between my service and my clients, as well as with my clients’ multi-disciplinary teams and with Psychology Direct themselves. Having worked with a number of referral agencies, I can truthfully say that Psychology Direct stand head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to service delivery and communication. I would highly recommend their service to anyone who is looking to provide the best quality psychology services for their clients.”
Dr A. H. - Clinical Psychologist
“As a Counselling Psychologist I feel that my relationship with Psychology Direct has a number of similarities to how I aspire to work with clients. I feel content, communication is sound, I feel that the kind of clients that are referred to me are suitable. The team at Psychology Direct are knowledgeable about the referrals and will always offer support in the case of any difficulties. It helps greatly to work with the same client manager with whom one has established a good rapport.”
Mr E. R. - Counselling Psychologist
“I have worked with Psychology Direct for a number of years and have nothing but praise for the organisation. The staff have always been helpful, polite, cheerful, supportive and professional. I have found their help with organizing appointments, liaising with solicitors and ensuring that payments are received in a timely manner, to be invaluable. I think it unlikely that my business would have grown so much without their support.”
Dr A. C. - Consultant Clinical Psychologist
