I have worked as an expert witness in the medico-legal field, specialising in personal injury claims, since 2001. In that time, I have assessed around 4000 clients, including adults, teenagers and children of all ages. I accept instructions from solicitors, insurance companies and medico-legal agencies, acting for either the claimant and/or the defendant, to assess claimants for conditions such as post traumatic stress disorder, adjustment disorder, anxiety, depression, pain disorders or other psychological injury.
I produce high quality and thorough court reports. I am frequently instructed in the following types of cases:
Road traffic accidents, pedestrian accidents, accidents at work, medical negligence, dental negligence, slips, trips and falls, dog bites, work-related stress and false arrest / imprisonment by the police.
I see clients either face to face or via video link (at present, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, remote instructions are preferred). I am fully aware of my responsibilities as an expert witness and to this end, I have obtained Part 1 of the Certificate of Medical Reporting: The Bond Solon Civil Procedure Rules Expert Witness Certificate.
I also offer therapy to private clients, including CBT and third-wave CBT.
