Sandy Gaskins profile
I have had three careers during my working life, Qualified Nursery Nurse, Registered Child Protection Social Worker and Chartered and HCPC Registered Psychologist. All three careers have focussed on families, children and relationship/parenting issues. As a counselling psychologist I carry out therapy, write reports for the Courts on family matters, and provide supervision for colleagues. I am an experienced and accredited expert witness to the Courts. My legal work involves assessing parenting ability and the wellbeing of children. It also includes parental separation, contact issues, relationships in blended families and with alternative carers including young people in residential care.
I have extensive experience of working with physical and learning disability, trauma, abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse and self-esteem.
I am qualified to administer and evaluate personality and intelligence psychometric tests.
