Applied Psychology Solutions work with experienced Clinical Psychologists around the UK and all will consider deferred fees for direct solicitor work. We offer remote and face to face appointments. We are not an agency, but provide administrative services for experts and assist by connecting experts with instructing parties (for no additional fee). Our experts specialise in civil litigation, but many also work in family courts.
Applied Psychology Solutions was founded and run by Dr Kathryn Newns, who has been specialising in medico-legal expert witness work for over 12 years and holds the Cardiff Law School Bond Solon Expert Witness Certificate. She has an MSc in Pain Management Approaches. She offers training events and workshops for medico-legal experts via the Expert Witness Institute.
Applied Psychology Solutions is a corporate partner with the Expert Witness Institute. Dr Newns is on the board of governors with the Expert Witness Institute.
We provide reports for both Claimant and Defendant lawyers and insurers, including joint instructions. Clients are typically seen within 4 – 6 weeks of instruction.
We aim to offer thorough assessments and concise and articulate reports with a fast turnaround time.
We can assist you in finding the right Clinical Psychologist in the right location.
