Andrea Harrison MBACP
I offer Person Centered Counselling, an approach ideal for individuals and couples who want to explore areas of self development in their personal lives and their relationships. Counselling is a process of talking about and working through your problems. In the first session i will ask you questions about your life, and what particular issue brought you to therapy.
From time to time we all feel sad, anxious, helpless, irritable, lack motivation and have low self-esteem. When these experiences persist for months and weeks it is a good indication that we are depressed. Without help, our mood can worsen, life becomes joyless and we can lose hope and withdraw from people.
Are you struggling with relationships? You might wish you could feel less needy in your romantic relationships. Trying to move on from abuse? Or dealing with loss? Dealing with conflict at work might be stressful.
If you are experiencing any of the above then you may need help from a therapist. I would like to support you in the process of beginning therapy and making the changes you hope for.
My aim is to understand and connect with your story, asking questions and providing a welcoming and supportive space for you. This philosophical approach is reliant on changing your outlook on life.
I work with individuals and couples delivering face-to-face therapy, both long-term and short-term. My practice is inclusive and welcoming to people of all ethnicity, nationalities, and gender identities.
If you would like to see if the way I work might suit you, I invite you to a free 10/15 min telephone consultation. This is a chance for us to connect and answer any questions you might have. There is no commitment to enter into therapy with me, its an opportunity for you to have a chat about what might be helpful for you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
