Paul Cousins
Consultant Forensic Clinical Psychologist

Welcome to my website.

I am a forensic clinical psychologist working in independent practice based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. My practice is primarily legal work, where I carry out assessments for criminal proceedings, child protection and care proceedings, particularly child sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. I also assess mentally disordered offenders in secure care and conduct prison-based assessments for review and sentence planning purposes; as well as offering supervision to NHS staff working with mental disorder and offending.
