Psychiatric Reports

I have a special interest in the mental health and psychological well being of young people who are subject to court proceedings. I have considerable experience of this work over the past 20 years and have written in the region of 200 different reports


I can provide Psychiatric Court Reports for Family Law matters including:

  • ·             Care proceedings
  • ·             Disputed custody, residence and contact arrangements
  • ·             Assessment of parenting
  • ·             Child abduction cases
  • ·             Parental alienation difficulties



I also can provide Psychiatric Court reports for Youth and Crown Court matters including:

  • ·             Fitness to plead (may be particularly relevant for young people with ADHD, other mental health difficulties or learning difficulties)
  • ·             Assessment of the defendant’s intent
  • ·             Assessment of capacity
  • ·             Options for diversion from custody
  • ·             Risk assessment
  • ·             Forensic assessment
  • ·             Diversion for formal psychiatric assessment

Other medico-legal work includes personal injury/compensation cases


As well as privately funded cases I am also very willing to work with legally aided cases
