About Us

Established in 2011 TSF Consultants are recognised as the leaders in the provision of  mental capacity assessments and were awarded the coverted title of Mental Capacity Assessor - firm of the year 2017 by Lawyer monthly. 

We believe that every individual is a person and that every person has the right to be the best that they can be and should be treated with respect and dignity at all times. Through our core values of empathy, compassion and knowledge we ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity and supported to achieve their optimum.

Our founder Tim Farmer is acknowledged as one of the UK's leading experts in the assessment of mental capacity. He is a registered mental health nurse with over 20 years experience of working with individual's with reduced capacity and was named as Expert witness (Mental Capacity) 2016. He is a best-selling author on the assessment of capacity and is also a member of Baroness Finlay's leadership team for the National Mental Capacity Forum, a national committee member for CoPPA (Court of Protection Practitioners Association).

We have over 50 assessors across the UK giving us truly national coverage. 99% of all our assessments occur in the individual's home at a time of their choosing. This enables us to ensure they feel safe and to ensure they can be at their optimum during the assessment. All of our assessors are either health or social care professionals and they are all recognised by the Court of Protection and the Office of the Public Guardian.


Since being established in 2011 our reputation has continued to grow with the result that in 2013 we gained our first international client. Since then we have had a number of individual's flown into the UK for us to assess and we have also been flown abroad to assess individual's on behalf of the Court of Protection.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the highest standard of mental capacity assessments and service to our customers. To be mindful that when people approach us they are in a time of crisis and we are to be part of the solution, not a part of the problem. If we can’t help for whatever reason we will always try and offer them an alternative.

Why TSF Consultants

We are the UK's leading experts in the assessment of mental capacity.
