COVID-19 Emergency Regulations - Updated 30 03 2020
In response to the Goverment directives and guidance we are ceasing undertaking medico-legal assessments until further notice.

Dr Thorley provides a service to solicitors and the Court as an expert witness for children, adolescents and young adults.
He has particular expertise in the assessment of mental health disorders and problems for children and young people up to 19 years of age. Assessments of possible brain injuries can be carried out for children and young people up to and including the age of 16 years. Litigation issues commonly arise from:-
- Road traffic accidents
- Assault and attacks
- Sexual, physical and emotional abuse
- Medical negligence
- Educational negligence
- Food poisoning
- Chemical and gas poisoning
These events frequently give rise to mental health problems and disorders including post-traumatic stress, phobias, adjustment disorders, depression and anxiety states. Brain injuries may result in a wide range of cognitive impairments with even the most minor ones being associated with memory and concentration difficulties.
Please note that assessments for the Criminal and Family Court are not undertaken. Instructions for limited (pre-litigation) screening reports are welcome as are low value RTA claims where we work within recommended rates and use the RTA3 report form.
Dr Thorley also provides therapy services for young people affected by personal injury. He is highly experienced in Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Hypnosis/Guided Imagery.
Please view the Therapy Services page for further information.
Dr Thorley also offers psychological assessment and therapy services to other client groups funded privately, or through medical insurance. For further information follow this link to: DrGeoffThorley.com
