Our team, headed by Mark Hollinghurst, specialises in legal issues relating to abuse and negligence by psychotherapists and counsellors, and the breach of appropriate personal boundaries by other health and social care professionals.
We pursue civil claims for damages, and also advise on complaint/regulatory processes. We always act for the client and not for the professional.
Trust, confidentiality and communication
We recognise that it is important to be able to trust your lawyer. The reasons for this are obvious – you have previously trusted a professional and had your trust abused. Can you trust another professional? You are certainly entitled to do so and we aim to offer a safe and secure environment in which to pursue your claim.
We understand from the outset that the information you give to us will be distressing for you and that this information is confidential.
We act for clients all over England and Wales, and aim to give clear advice. We are used to working with clients long-distance and establish clear and effective ways of communicating with you during the course of the legal process.
