The Priory Group has opened a new mental health clinic in Harley Street - the latest in a series of high-street outpatient clinics.

The Priory Wellbeing Centre at 41 Harley Street in the capital provides fast access to mental health treatment, with flexible consulting hours, enabling patients to plan visits around work and other commitments.

The Priory Group has invested nearly £300,000 in the centre, which will be staffed by therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists and other healthcare professionals, offering a comprehensive range of treatment options.

Dr Hayley van Zwanenberg, clinical director of Priory Group’s wellbeing centres and the group’s associate medical director, said: “It is very exciting for my team to be opening this new clinic in Harley Street and to offer their expertise and extensive experience to patients seeking urgent help and forward-thinking treatment for their mental health.

“We hope to extend Priory’s role in offering early diagnosis and prompt intervention, and play a pro-active part in supporting all patients towards a better quality of life and long-term recovery.

“Priory’s Wellbeing Centres have proven incredibly popular across the UK and it feels timely and appropriate that we should bring our expertise to a second central London location, synonymous with high quality and specialist healthcare.”

Priory consultant psychiatrist, Dr Kathryn Hollins, a UK expert in parent and child mental health, added: “Specialist psychological treatments will be available in our new parenthood, pregnancy and family life service.

“There is greater understanding of the importance of emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and the early years of childhood development and family life. More people are choosing to invest in their families’ health and happiness and we want to support them.”

The centre will offer psychological support and treatment for individuals and couples trying for a baby, including through fertility treatment, and adoption, as well as treatment for moderate antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety.
