Expert Witness


Helping you support your biggest asset

Dedicated to providing expert Psychologists to Employers

With employees being the biggest asset to any organisation, employers have a duty of care and responsibility towards them. When employees come under strain through mental health or other issues, or performance becomes an issue, psychological assessment and support may become necessary to establish the best outcome for all parties.

Instances of prolonged absence often create a challenge for organisations to shoulder. It is therefore in everyone’s interest for expert help to be delivered swiftly so that decisions can be made, and resources made available depending on the independent psychologist’s recommendations.

Our register of over 1000 qualified Psychologists includes a wide breadth of expertise including Clinical, Educational and Neuropsychologists, any of which may be relevant to the case. They will also be skilled and experienced in communicating their findings at Tribunals if necessary. You’ll receive outstanding service from our team, as we quickly produce relevant CVs and fees, expedite appointments and assessment dates and then ensure a comprehensive quality-checked report containing findings and recommendations is with you in a timely manner.

Our Employment assessments/services include:
  • Fitness to work assessments & return to work recommendations
  • General Mental health assessments, including stress, anxiety & PTSD
  • Reports for Disability Discrimination claims
  • Educational assessments to identify learning difficulties
  • Assessments of the impact of bullying and harassment

We vett all of our psychologists prior to registration and only accept applications from psychologists who are registered with the Health & Care Professions Council and/or the British Psychological Society. We also ask that they provide an anonymous copy of a previous report for us to check, before we give them their first instruction. In addition to this all reports are quality checked by our Client Management team prior to being released to you.

Finally, we constantly monitor the performance of our psychologists in terms of their ability to adhere to agreed fees & deadlines as we appreciate that these are also very important.
