Life can bring many difficulties and overwhelming feelings that can be hard to cope with, leaving you feeling unsure where to turn to or how to move forwards. Then counselling can be really supportive. Do call me to ask any questions you may have.
- Are you living with anxiety or depression?
- Adjusting to loss or change?
- Feeling down and lacking energy?
- Stuck in ways of being that you would like to understand or change?
If you would like to talk about what is troubling you, I can offer you a confidential space to talk and be listened to. The sessions are accepting, supportive and understanding so that you can talk about whatever you need to.
I offer both short-term and long-term counselling and therapy. Some evening appointments are available.
If you’re wondering if it’s for you, do get in touch for a phone chat to ask your questions and decide for yourself if you want to try it out.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, having completed a Diploma and a 3 year Masters degree at the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education, London.
I have worked with adults of all ages and backgrounds with all kinds of issues that affect their day-to-day life and the way they cope. This includes working together on anxiety and panic attacks, stress, depression, relationship difficulties, low self esteem, loss and bereavement, life transitions, stress at work, redundancy, physical health problems and many other issues.
I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) , the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I work within UKCP, HCPC and BACP codes of ethics.
I work in private practice, adult education and with the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust for Gloucestershire. Previous therapy roles include private practice in London and Hertfordshire, the NHS, a women’s service and the mental health charity Mind.

It is important to find a way that works for you. As a Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist as well as a State Registered Art Psychotherapist, I offer you ways of working tailored to suit you. I find that supporting clients to express their feelings through image making often leads to a deeper understanding of issues. If you prefer talking therapy, I am equally happy with that. What interest me is improving the quality of your life, whatever your current experience.
You can contact me by email, phone or text. If I am unable to answer the phone, please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as possible. Harriet - 07914 775296.
