Associates & Vacancies

When setting up FP Consultants, the vision was always underpinned by a desire to provide a platform for highly experienced, skilled practitioners who wanted the opportunity to work flexibly and independently in order to provide high quality psychological services to clients.  

This remains the vision and to date the associates working with FP Consultants are amongst the best in their field with a passion and commitment for quality and integrity in the work they complete.
