Judi Harrison MBACP
I am a person centred counsellor. I am passionate about helping people to become the best version of themselves. I have experience of working with young people and i firmly believe that early intervention is the key to improving mental health and emotional issues. Behaviours such as self-harming often have an underlying emotional issue which I can enable the client to talk about. I have experience of working with young people who have had varying issues including depression, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts, self-harm, sexuality issues, school and exam stresses, anxiety and family problems. There can be so many issues that affect young people and I believe that person centred counselling is the key to allowing a young person to get the best of their teenage years and to progress into a fulfilling adulthood.
I am experienced with the survivors of trauma, rape and child abuse. I have worked with clients who have survived the most horrific trauma and who want to find a way of living with their memories and feelings. Each person's journey through counselling is different and I want to be able to help them at this time.
I work in a purpose built garden room which I share with a fellow counsellor. I have done both long term (26 weeks ) and short term work (6 weeks). At the moment I can offer appointments during the day and evenings all week.
