A rapid, professional & cost effective service

Founded by Clinical Psychologist Dr Louise Banham, Psychiatry Direct is a sister company to Psychology Direct.  Our aim is to improve access to independent psychiatric services.

We take the guess work out of finding the right expert witness psychiatrist and manage the whole process for you.  Once we have the details of your enquiry, one of our dedicated Client Managers will match them with the most appropriate psychiatrist in your area and confirm the costs and availability to you.

We aim to respond to all enquiries with 1 hour and provide you with details of qualified professionals, including costs & CVs, within 24 hours.

We have a national network of over 1,000 experts witnesses, so we can provide rapid access to highly trained professionals in your area. To ensure the quality of our professionals, we work only with recognised experts who are registered with the relevant professional bodies such as the General Medical Council (GMC) and Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCP).

Our National network includes Forensic Psychiatrists, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrists and Neuropsychiatrists, who are able to undertake assessments and treatment of Children, Adolescents, Adults & Older Adults, using evidence based methods.
