At Carter Brown we’re happy to recommend a number of different types of psychologists. As well as cognitive assessments and capacity assessments (usually in a medico-legal capacity), they’re able to provide most types of psychological assessments, expert witness reports, support and advice.

They can be broadly classified as:

  • Clinical psychologists – work with people on their problems/illnesses
  • Counselling psychologists – employ therapy solutions though counselling
  • Educational psychologists – concerned with education and learning
  • Forensic psychologists – study crime and work with offenders
  • Neuropsychologists – concerned with the functions of the brain
  • Chartered psychologists – a psychologist who has worked for a number of years successfully, supervised by a more senior psychologist

All of our psychologists are subject to our quality standards: a rigorous recruitment process, registration with their professional bodies, and criminal record checks.

Most importantly, they are professionals at the top of their fields, with reputations for integrity and impartiality.

Below are some of the medico-legal assessments psychologists can carry out in their role as expert witnesses.
