Elizabeth (Lilla) Harris
Hello I am Lilla. At certain times in our lives our usual coping mechanisms can become exhausted leaving us anxious and unable to see our way through difficulties. Finding a counsellor that suits you is not easy so I hope the information that follows helps you decide if I might be the person that you feel comfortable working with.
My therapy room is in Melton Mowbray town centre. It offers a warm confidential and comfortable environment for clients.
I believe 'everyone' has the ability to overcome the most traumatic experiences, adapt and evolve themselves to go on and live a healthy and positive life. I provide a professional, confidential and non-judgmental environment for individuals needing to experience positive changes to their emotional, physical and mental health. I work on a flexible, long term or short term basis.
