Dr Squirrell conducts a range of psychological and medico-legal assessments. Psychological assessments are often sought when a third party wishes to obtain a formal diagnosis or report. A report provides you or your client with an expert assessment of a client’s current level of functioning and/or level of impairment. Dr Squirrell also provides psychosexual assessment reports that may be required for legal proceedings.
