The COVID-19 lockdown has been disruptive to psychological assessments. It has often been difficult to schedule appointments by video, and technological issues have impeded some interviews. It has not been possible to complete all aspects of the work by video, particularly with children and more vulnerable adults.
Assessment timescales have frequently been extended in these circumstances, and earlier assessments have now started to overlap with later pieces of scheduled work. For this reason I have reluctantly decided to stop taking on any new instructions until September 2020. There will undoubtedly be some exceptions to this, e.g. where there is a need for new assessments in cases that I have already been involved with. Please do continue to make enquiries, but apologies in advance if I cannot make myself available at this time.
