Charlotte Harris Online Therapist BA Hons, PGDip, Reg. BACP
Psychotherapy is a talking therapy which helps work through difficulties causing psychological distress in your life in a safe and confidential way. I specialise in the areas of anxiety, bereavement, trauma and abuse and relationship difficulties. If you feel that you cannot name a specific cause for what is going on, and everything feels troubled, we can explore together the experiences of your life to try and make sense of them.
How Online Counselling Can Help
The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for a process of healing and transformation. The guiding principles of my work are to offer a safe, supportive and confidential space to develop this relationship and explore all that is going on for you. Counselling can help you to make shifts in ways of thinking, feeling and acting in the world which can improve your quality of life and help you to move on from a stuck place or traumatic event.
Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a process by which past events and experiences are thought about in the context of the present and how your day to day life may be impacted upon by these past experiences. The therapy focuses on working through and making links from past to present to allow for new insights and awareness to enable shifts in thinking, feeling and behaviour. At this process takes place, the capacity to make different choices for in the present and future opportunities is is presented.
How Can I Help You?
I have been working in a therapeutic capacity both within agencies and in private practice since 2004 in the UK and now currently live and work in private practice online in Northern Spain. Depending on your needs, I can work on a short-term basis for a set number of sessions, or long term, open-ended work.
Online therapy is different to working in person of course, but it offers great flexibility and makes therapy more accesbile to all. My approach that the key to making change is the quality of the trust in the therapeutic relationship and this relationship feels just as important online.
Anxiety and stress are running especially high due to the effects of this COVID pandemic, lockdown and restrictions. Perhaps things that have been bubbling away in the background for some time have now risen to the surface. If you would like to chat through your problems with anxiety, depression or general stress, please do get in touch.
Online sessions work in a very similar way to face to face in that the session takes place at the same time and day every week. You will be able to see me in my consulting room via the video call which can be either by Skype or Zoom, whichever you prefer. It is quite simple to use these tools and I can talk you through thing if you are not familiar with them.
Getting in Touch
I understand that the unknown can be daunting and reaching out is a very important and courageous first step in the process. You can email me initially to request a free initial consultation which will give you the chance to meet me and see how online working feels for you.
