Ordering individual days with an educational psychologist

Ad hoc work can be requested from our private educational psychologists. These can be individual days ordered mid academic year. Our educational psychologists works across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and neighbouring counties


Schools are welcome to contact Psychology4Learning to request individual pieces of work / ad hoc days of work throughout the academic year.

Note that when ordering ad hoc time with a psychologist, we will need to check educational psychologist availability before accepting the order. Psychologist work on annual contracts takes priority, with ad hoc requests fitting around the other contracts.

Ad hoc requests may include working with a particular child/young person, delivering a training session, providing staff consultation etc.

  • Unexpected events – it’s not always possible to forsee when your school will to see a psychologist, hence the need to be able to order individual days mid year.

  • Flexibility – book time with the psychologist as needed

  • Budget constraints – you may not have the budget to order an annual contract, but an individual day when needed, may be financially possible.
