How We Can Help
At our clinics, we have teams of Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists and Mental Health Nurses who provide specialist psychological assessments and therapies for adults who are experiencing difficulties with their psychological well-being. Our highly experienced clinicians are skilled in working with a range of difficulties including mental health conditions (e.g. depression/anxiety), trauma from early life, adjustment to life events, relationship difficulties, cognitive difficulties, learning disabilities, autism and the psychological impact of physical health conditions. Applying their in-depth scientific understanding of human psychology and behaviour, our clinicians are experts in their field and provide assessments and treatments that are grounded in scientific understanding and research evidence. Our clinicians are highly motivated to achieve positive outcomes for their clients, working closely with them to decrease distress and enhance well-being. Our professional clinic settings provide a comfortable and relaxed environment, helping clients feel at ease during their consultations.
What To Expect
Many adults access our services for psychological therapy with one of our highly trained Psychologists. Prior to the commencement of therapy, the first appointment is an initial assessment and usually lasts 1.5 hours. It may include the completion of questionnaires as well as extensive discussions with the clinician in order that they can understand the nature of your difficulties. Therapy sessions usually last 1 hour but may be slightly extended for some types of therapies. Therapy sessions with a Psychologist offer the most comprehensive and informed form of talking therapy available. Discussions here will allow your Psychologist to explore and analyse current difficulties and their origins/effects. The Psychologist will help the client to safely process any difficult past experiences, and will help them to develop new (more adaptive) ways of thinking and being. Therapy with a Psychologist is usually more ‘active’ and structured than with a counsellor or Psychotherapist and includes learning about, and trying out, various evidence-based strategies and therapeutic techniques.

Specialist in-depth assessments e.g. Clinical Psychology / Educational Psychology usually extend over a greater number of sessions.

The Psychologist at Purple House suggested various interventions for our son which were implemented at home and at school. Following these changes, there has been a miraculous turnaround in his well-being. I can’t thank Purple House enough – our lives have been transformed!
Parent of young child
The Psychologist at Purple House was amazing. I felt safe with her from the very first session. She was supportive and professional and with her help I have been able to begin the journey back to truly living my life. She has changed my life in a very real way and I’m so proud of myself for making it as far as I did with her help. Thank you!
