The court agreed that a female clinical psychologist should work with the P in regard to her bad decision-making in relation to sexual partners.
The court, in previous proceedings, determined that the P lacked capacity to; conduct the proceedings; make decisions on her contact with men; make decisions about care and residence; make decisions as to whether to enter or terminate a tenancy; decide whether or not she should access mobile phones or social networking sites. She went on to get married and her husband, on his application, was now a party to the proceedings. A number of men had taken advantage of the P after a plan was proposed such that she could have unsupervised contact with men. At the date of this hearing the P was living in a residential unit with other women.
The court gave permission for a report by a female clinical psychologist to be prepared, to address the issues concerning the P's bad decision-making in relation to sexual activity, with a view to a hearing before the same judge in January 2019.
