Welcome to Harper Clinical Psychology
My name is Alison Harper and I am a Clinical Psychologist based in Edinburgh. I am an HCPC and BPS registered Clinical Psychologist with over seventeen years of working with people experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties. I offer individual assessment, therapy and expert witness reports.
Negative emotions are inbuilt into all of us as means of survival, helping to warn us imminent danger or threat. When these emotions are in balance, we remain mentally healthy. When our emotions begin to mis-fire, usually as a result of multiple stressors, mental health problems can emerge and we can become stuck in a vicious cycle.
I have twelve years’ experience in providing psychology medico-legal reports, largely within the areas of Personal Injury and Medical Negligence. I undertake assessments of individuals reported to be experiencing difficulties that I routinely see in my clinical practice.
Your initial appointment is for assessment, with the aim of checking that I am the right person to help, clarifying problems and discussing treatment options. Subsequent appointments then focus on therapy. Each appointment will last for 50-55 minutes.
