We provide research consultancy and a range of research support to organisations, from health research through to market research.
We have a team of highly educated, forward-thinking research active psychologists who can work with your organisation in a way that suits your requirements. We apply psychological theory to real world experience and knowledge in the analysis of the data provided in order to think outside the box and to take things to a new level.
We have a vast amount of experience in conducting quantitative (statistical and survey based), qualitative (interview and open-ended questions) research as well as mixed methods (combining quantitative and qualitative) and observational research. Our unique approach provides a thorough exploration of the research undertaken, whether that is around motivations, behavior, target audience, workplace satisfaction and so on. We are passionately committed to research and to providing excellent quality enquiry within an ethical framework.
Our research consultancy service can cater for individuals embarking on a research idea right up to organisations planning large-scale projects. We can help and advise at any stage from the initial acorn of an idea to the planning, design, statistical and qualitative advice, analysis and execution of the project. We have a wealth of experience to draw upon. We have published our research across a range of academic journals in Psychology and Health Sciences; and have presented internationally. We have collaborated with various organisations including universities across the UK and Internationally, the NHS, the police, schools, the Department for Transport as well as much smaller companies. If you think we may be able to assist you, please make contact to discuss your requirements.
