CFN’s founder and associates have significant experience in assisting the police with investigations into serious sexual and violent crimes against children and adults. We provide consultancy and specialist behaviour analysis regarding all types of offending to investigations. Working effectively with investigative teams we can develop investigative advice at strategic and tactical levels. At the point where suspects are interviewed we support the officers in providing bespoke interviewing strategies to enhance the effectiveness of this process.
We are specialists in Forensic Hypnosis which when employed within the context of an investigation, can provide information from a complainant, victim or witness. Hypnosis is specifically intended as an enhancer of memory recall only, and is therefore not used establish truth. Given the high probability that individual can confabulate during a hypnotic sessions, the accuracy of all information obtained through hypnosis must be verified and/or corroborated through careful investigation. Hypnosis should never be used in relation to suspects or accused/charged persons due to the risk of confabulation or accidentally implanted memories.
