Every day, the application of psychological theories and research methods solves problems and improves lives. Our expertise spans this field, and addresses how people learn, think and respond to their environment.
With academic backgrounds in diverse sectors including education, environment, crime and policing, we apply rigorous research methods to provide scientific evidence for a wide range of multidisciplinary projects. We utilise cutting-edge technology, facilities and equipment to do so.
Our academics have extensive experience conducting psychological research to provide evidence-based solutions which are tailored to each client. We have worked with local governments, police forces, social services, schools, charities and commercial organisations.
