"I have just spent the last few weeks working through some "stuff" with Jan Slater and I wanted to share my experience so that others can also benefit from this amazing woman. I came to Jan at a really dark time when I was feeling nothing but negative about my life, my existence and indeed I was even questioning any future at all. I realised I needed help and sought out a local psychotherapist. What drew me to Jan was her impressive list of credentials, experience and range of expertise. This is very important to me and perhaps one of the clinchers was seeing she also supervises other therapists so it was clear she was not only suitably qualified but also experienced enough and credible enough to develop other practitioners too. Seeing that she has established practices locally and in Harley Street also gave me confidence to contact her and arrange an appointment.
When we met, she put me straight at ease and invested a considerable amount of time seeking to understand my challenges. She was extremely understanding and very easy to open up to. She asked very pointed questions and was firm with me whenever she needed to be. I am not quite sure what she did, nor how she did it, but the difference between where I am now and where I was just a few weeks ago is remarkable. Jan has helped me find my own answers to my own problems and has empowered me and given me the strength to move forward. I can highly recommend Jan as a supportive, encouraging and understanding therapist who will help you deal with whatever challenge you face.
I was almost a prisoner in my own body. Plagued by my obsessive compulsive thoughts and constant fears; I was not wanting to go on any longer. I had been in counselling before but it had not stopped me carrying out my daily rituals and sometimes I would have to return to my house to check everything was in order again and again. It ruined my marriage and my self esteem was on the floor. Jan helped me in a way that transformed my life. I was able to tell her the absolute truth about my obsessive habits and thoughts. She put me at ease, never judged or made me feel in the least bit awkward no matter what I told her.She helped me train my thinking and encouraged me to believe I could make changes. It has changed my life. Mrs B................................

‘I am an adult with (recently diagnosed) Aspergers, and secondary mental health problems. Having spent a long time searching for someone in the Cheltenham area with knowledge and training to be able to help with learning how best to deal with Asperger’s and its consequences, I can happily and confidently say that Jan is indeed that right person who knows the way to help with specific Asperger’s oriented needs. She has helped me a lot, and has a great sense of humour too! David Pearce ( musician)
Couple Testimonial 2014 (Aspergers)
“We started seeing Jan around a year ago after my husband was diagnosed with Aspergers. The last year has been a revelation. Jan has helped both of us to learn more about the condition and we have been able to apply this successfully to understand each other better and drastically improve family life. There was no support from the NHS after the diagnosis (not even a leaflet!) and I’m so glad we did some research of our own to find Jan. She has armed us with useful strategies relevant to our individual circumstances to help family life run smoothly again. I can’t recommend her highly enough”
