About Psychology4Learning

Psychology4Learning was established in 2016 by Dr Robert Beadel (Educational Psychologist), Dr Paula Williams (Educational Psychologist) and Claire Olliffe (Business Director) and provides educational psychologists to schools and parents. After many years working in the public sector, the three founders felt their skills would be best applied by establishing a private educational psychologist business to meet the increasing needs of schools and their pupils. We now have an experienced team of 14 Associate Educational Psychologists, as well as the two founder Educational Psychologists, working with over 100 schools and parents across Buckinghamshire and neighbouring counties.

Our private Educational Psychologists want to share their knowledge and experience with ALL parents and schools. They have spent many years working for Local Authorities, and are now using this experience to bring educational psychology directly to schools, other educational settings, parents and carers. Our aim is to provide the education sector with an independent and trusted psychology provider who is fully committed to putting the needs of the child first.
