Amy Harris MBACP (Accred)
I am a very experienced, professionally qualified and BACP accredited counsellor working with both adults, couples and young people. I have worked in both private practice and for specialist counselling organisations for over 10 years.
I offer a warm, confidential, safe space which provides you with the time to reflect on any issues you may have and identify your own resources and strengths helping you become the person you wish to be. You have the capacity for change.
As an Integrative Counsellor I combine knowledge and skills from different therapies and work with them to best suit your individual needs. I am passionate in exploring and using creativity to help along this journey, if that feels right for you, being mindful that often words can be too difficult to find.
I have a particular interest in working with young people. I hold a deep respect for the difficulties young people can encounter whilst growing up and strive to support them in navigating their way through this time.
I am also experienced in working with anxiety and aim to support you in reducing the impact this can have on your life. You may feel disconnected from people, activities, and work; be experiencing a loss of energy and unfocused. Therapy can give you understanding into what can often be a debilitating experience and help you work through it.
The relationship between the client and counsellor is one of the most important factors of successful therapy. It is important to find a counsellor where this relationship can develop. That is why I offer a free initial session which allows you the time to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
My work with clients has embraced a wide range of issues including substance misuse, addicitions, attachment issues, bereavement, family issues, physical and emotional health, anxiety and depression.
