Angela Harris MBACP, MA Counselling (Hons)
If you're on this website, chances are that you or someone you love dearly is having a difficult time. Choosing a counsellor can be daunting, especially when we feel uncertain or hopeless. I'd like to encourage you to get in touch without any obligation to contract to work together. But first, here are some things about me you might want to know:
I have experience working with clients aged 13-80 years and with adult couples. I am also an integrative counsellor, which means that I can use a variety of approaches and theories which can be used, depending on how you would prefer to work together. Most of all, though, all of my work is rooted in my firm belief that all people have inherent worth and deserve to be loved.
Many people who come to counselling think of themselves or their lives as broken or unmanageable in some vital way. Together, I'd like to explore the idea that all behaviour and emotions exist for a purpose. I believe that beginning to understand actions and reactions as natural responses to events in our lives helps to set us free from seeing ourselves as flawed and moves us towards practising self-compassion, regardless of what life brings.
