Biographies

 

Family Psychology Mutual CIC benefits from having experienced clinical staff who are supported by a small business development and administration team. Family Psychology Mutual is owned by the employees and so is a not for profit social enterprise. There is a formal board that oversees the company. This includes two independent Non-Executive Directors who bring oversight and challenge to the board to ensure good governance at all times in our business operations. An elected staff member also sits on the board.
