Our reputation is your opportunity.

We’re in demand because of our effective and comprehensive therapeutic interventions and assessments.

As a result of our growing reputation we are now recruiting for a number of self-employed associate positions. If you join us you will benefit from a high level of supervision, support and training.  This is because we value our people.



Are you experienced in assessing children and/ or adults? Our new associate psychologists will join our medico-legal family assessment team to carry out psychological assessments of children, adults and families. Assessments will be based primarily in Northern Ireland. We welcome applications from psychologists with a range of backgrounds.


Are you a specialist in trauma and attachment informed assessments and therapy? We are keen to hear from therapists able to deliver services in the London or Kent region. It is not necessary for you to be a psychologist.

Please note all our positions are self-employed and flexible.

In the first instance, please introduce yourself via email "> with a summary of your experience and a request for further information.

Having worked in the NHS for many years I was apprehensive about taking the step to completing private medico-legal assessments. I have had an excellent experience as an Associate with Shortland Psychology. The level of support for liaising with solicitors, setting timeframes for completion of reports, and direction in assessments has been superb. I have also appreciated the level of supervision and support from Dr Shortland throughout the assessment and report writing stages. To top the experience, payment from Shortland Psychology is always very prompt! I would highly recommend Shortland Psychology to any Psychologists interested in private work.
