About the Expert

Paul qualified as a clinical psychologist in 1995 getting his doctoral degree at the University of Bangor, having previously gained his first degree at Cardiff University in 1988.

He is one of our longest standing clinical psychologists to work with HK Associates since 2005.

Paul has extensive experience in occupational and legal work including employment/absence management.

Paul’s particular passion outside of work is surfing (and he quietly hopes that one day soon personal injury work might develop in some of the surf ‘hot spots’ in the world!).  Paul also likes to travel and now his children are getting older, looks forward to venturing further afield again, this time with his family in tow.  Other interests include music (he fondly recalls his first gig, namely going to watch The Rolling Stones during the middle of his ‘o’ levels aged 16), reading and films.  “I should say that most of my non-work time is spent with my family and I take great pride and joy in watching my children grow up into (what I consider) to be wonderful people.”

Paul works in a variety of locations in England and Wales.
