We can help identify the pathway into offending, the risk factors underpinning the behaviour, the likelihood of further offending and the risk of harm.
Our assessments are always focussed on future risk management and we provide recommendations relating to suitable treatment pathways or risk management strategies.
We provide assessments for:
- Criminal court proceedings

- Risk management planning and treatment suitability
We have expertise in using a range of Psychological tools to assess:

We can provide assessments relating to the suitability to plead or stand trial.
We present the results of our assessments in a usable, accessible and understandable manner.
We can develop future management strategies that can assist the client and referring agency.
