About me

I have been working within the field of mental health for almost 25 years, predominantly within the NHS, and have accumulated a wealth of training and experience.

I provide both long and short term counselling to suit your needs, and work to a very high standard of confidentiality. The model that I work from is called Integrative, and this incorporates both Psychodynamic, Person Centered, and CBT methods.

I am told I am a very easy to talk to therapist, and offer a safe and peaceful place for you to work through issues that are troubling you. Regardless of your experiences, behaviour or thoughts, you will find me a very non-judgemental therapist, and I am able to offer you a warm and empathic environment in which to explore yourself or simply offload.

Additional to regular counselling, I can also offer Animal Assisted Therapy if you would like to explore this way of working, but this is only provided following a discussion around how this may help you.

Please feel free to call me in order to discuss any questions you may have, or visit my website www.lindaharristherapy.co.uk

If you find telephoning me difficult, I am very timely in responding to e-mail enquires.
