Dr Perera has literally changed my life. I was extremely fortunate to come under her care around 6 years ago through the NHS (having already been with the mental health team for 3 years). Initially Dr Perera spent a lot of time really getting to know me and my behaviour patterns to confirm my diagnosis of bipolar affective disorder, thus creating a solid platform to explore potential solutions. Unlike other psychiatrists Dr Perera was able to see past my then substance misuse and recognise it as a function of the disorder. I felt that she REALLY got to know me and before long would take one look at me when I arrived for my appointments and know exactly how I was. She engendered total trust from me and as a result I was always 100% honest with her. By nature I am stubborn and won't listen - Dr Perera is one of the very few people I have ever known that can tell me off and challenge my behaviour without me kicking off in response - my total respect for her meant I would listen, take it all on board and work to adjust my behaviour. She showed great patience as we worked through various medications - I resisted the one that finally worked because it can make you put on weight, but she allowed me try all the others first. I was discharged this week as I finally have a hold on managing my bipolar and have been stable for almost a year - this has taken a long time. I was not always an easy patient, she has steered me through some very chaotic high risk periods, periods where I have behaved like a spoiled child, long periods of deep depression and gently and positively encouraged me as I moved into this current phase of wellbeing. Dr Perera has a multi pronged approach to recovery, she encouraged me to engage with various local services and as a result am now one year sober, practice mindfulness, yoga and meditation on a daily basis and other activities to support my wellbeing. I was sad to say goodbye as she has been critical in my gaining control of this condition which has plagued me since childhood. I dread to think where I would be if I hadn't have met her, I certainly wouldn't be where I am now - feeling well - and the strongest mentally, emotionally and physically I have ever been. Anyone who becomes a patient of Dr Perera should consider themselves extremely lucky. I certainly do.

Dr Perera has been fantastic from start to finish during my time seeking support for my struggles with mental health. She is very calm, kind and patient, knows exactly when to provide insight/medical advice and when to listen. She is also great at making you feel at ease, so if you do struggle with anything anxiety/depression related I’d highly recommend her. Finally, any initial doubts I had about the cost/benefit of private psychiatry have been totally changed as a result of my sessions with Jane. If I ever need support from her in the future I’ll be sure to return. Thanks again and I wish you all the best in the future. Warm regards, Ali

I would recommend Dr Perera to anyone that needs help. Her skills in finding out what the issues are while being very supportive have been very helpful. She is great at her job which she clearly has interest in, so what more could you want. - She is my Psychiatrist and has been for about half a year

Dr. Perera is incredible. In five minutes of talking, she completely understands where I'm coming from and gets to the root of the issue in tremendous speed so we can spend the time on working out how to manage various situations. I am totally in awe of her professionalism, smarts, and focus.

Profile

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Working in mental health over the years has made me curious about the patient’s journey, their strengths and vulnerabilities and the importance of working with the patient for recovery to start. This means getting to know the patient, the patient being able to trust you, being able to challenge the patient and yet hold onto to hope, when the patient is struggling to do so Your feedback will help me reflect on how well I do this so thank you
