Evolve Psychology is an independent psychology and neurodevelopmental practice. Evolve offers Emotional Well-being, Autism, ADHD, child, family and adult assessments. Based in Harrogate, we provide families and individuals with full assessments as recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence.
Our emotional and wellbeing specialism also helps clients (children and adults) by undertaking assessments for a range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, anger, self-esteem, eating disorders, PTSD and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
We also provide expert witness reports for the courts and parole boards in the areas of family law, criminal law, immigration law, prison law and medico-legal cases.
Following its expansion, Evolve can now draw upon the skills of a growing team of Clinical and Forensic psychologists, with backgrounds in Forensic Psychology, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Looked After Children’s Services and Adult Mental Health/ Learning Disability Services.
The team includes Speech and Language Therapists, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) practitioners, and Assistant Psychologists.
