Registered as a Practitioner Psychologist (Clinical Psychologist) with the Health and Care Professions Council
Based in Thorpe Le Soken, Essex, Blandford Consultancy provides a nationwide specialist and comprehensive psychology assessments and reports for individuals aged 16 years or over, for individuals, insurers, solicitors and other agencies. Publicly funded instructions are welcomed, as are independently funded instructions.
Blandford Consultancy provides a prompt, efficient, reliable, personal, and highly professional service. Aware of the short time demands sometimes experienced by instructing parties, Blandford Consultancy always aims to meet those time constraints whenever possible. Typically, from receipt of final instructions and also of all relevant documents and medical records, reports are submitted within two to three weeks following the assessment. Urgent assessments and subsequent filing of a report will be accommodated within short time frames whenever possible.
Consulting rooms can be arranged as required or the individual can be seen at a location more convenient to them, such as their solicitor’s office.
Who I Am
I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Chartered Psychologist, Chartered Scientist, and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I am registered with the British Psychological Society as an Expert Witness. I am also registered with the Health and Care Professions Council as a Practitioner Psychologist (Clinical Psychologist).
I am highly experienced in working with adults (i.e. 16 years or older) with a range of presenting psychological problems, across a wide variety of settings. Since 1999, I have held several professional clinical positions, and I have combined independent practice with on-going work as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist for the NHS. In 2009 I established Blandford Consultancy, and since then, I have worked full time as an independent Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Chartered Psychologist.
I have considerable and extensive experience as an Expert Witness in preparing robust, evidence-based written reports, including those for complex cases, and also in presenting oral psychological evidence in civil, family, and criminal court proceedings. I pride myself on offering a highly professional, efficient, specialist, prompt service, and in meeting deadlines.
