Expert Witness Assessments

Dr Gemma Parker, Clinical Psychologist, provides expert witness reports to family courts on the following issues:

  • Pubic law and private law family court cases
  • Domestic violence and coercive control
  • High conflict relationships
  • Parental alienation
  • Risk of physical and sexual abuse of children
  • Capacity to protect from abuse
  • Parental mental health issues and personality disorder
  • Capacity to change

I have received positive feedback about my reports being balanced, well-written and useful. I have given oral evidence in a number of court settings, which has also been well-received. I have previously attended the Bond Solon training for expert witnesses, including the report writing and cross examination skills.

Please contact me if you would like a copy of my CV or to request timescales. I work to Legal Aid rates and caps where applicable.


"Dr Parker's risk assessment was pivotal to the parents being persuaded to come to an agreement and be realistic about the situation and the children's needs to maintain a relationship with their father."

"Her report was filed on time and was comprehensive.  It addressed all the issues and she answered all our questions. The report read well and was easily understood by litigants in person, even if they did not agree with it! The report assisted the court greatly in moving the case forward.  When we had to interact with Dr Parker to make appointments and so on she always responded promptly and was helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in instructing her again."
