Dr Janice Harper, DClinPsychol, CPsychol, Consultant Clinical Psychologist
I am a consultant clinical psychologist offering therapy for a wide range of psychological difficulties experienced by those aged 18+. I also offer therapy for couples and for families supporting someone with mental health difficulties.
Mental health or emotional problems range from mild anxiety or stress to more complex and severe problems. They are part of what makes us human, but they can all have a significant impact on our lives, affecting relationships, work and our general well being.Psychological therapy involves working together using psychological expertise and your own expertise in yourself to help increase understanding of your difficulties and to help you identify and implement interventions that may help to reduce emotional distress and bring significant changes to your mental wellbeing and to the quality of your life.
Seeking help can be daunting, especially if you're not used to talking about your problems. Rest assured that, in my experience, the vast majority of people find it helpful to talk in a safe, professional and confidential environment.
I would be happy to have an initial chat on the phone to help decide if I can be of help to you.
