Expert Witness Services

A core area of work for FP Consultants is the provision of expert witness services in a range of contexts, including Parole hearings, Mental Health Tribunals, Immigration and Criminal Courts as part of pre-sentencing matters. 

Evidenced Based Psychological Assessments

Anyone instructing FP Consultants can expect professional, accessible, independent, high quality, evidenced based psychological assessments. 

These assessments will examine a range of factors that research indicates are relevant to the developmental pathway of offending behaviours. 

Information will always be drawn from a range of sources to provide a clear psychological formulation relating to an individual’s own needs and presenting problems, as well as providing opinion as to the nature and level of an individual’s risk. 

All assessments aim to provide recommendations to aid an individual’s progression and risk management, as well as supporting professionals responsible for any future management or treatment provision.
