[R] psigamma derivative

I am trying to find a hessian matrix that involves log(gamma(1/p)) second derivative, p being one of the parameters of the function. I am using a function "deriv" with the hessian=TRUE option, but psigamma is not on the list of derivative functions. I know that it is possible to use 'psigamma(p,deriv)', but it doesn't work with 1/p. Does anybody can help with this?
