Coral Harrison, PTSTA, CTA, Psychotherapist
I am a supportive and caring professional who enjoys helping people find their inner strengths and resources. Most people find me approachable, non judgemental, honest and open.
Life, today, has many different pressures, which can leave us feeling stretched and with a lack of contentment.
Talking to an experienced psychotherapist can help you make sense of your life and the difficulties you are experiencing.
I work with children, teenagers, adults and professionals who need suppport at a time in their lives when there is too much going on. This support can be short term, with the focus on learning strategies for managing anxiety, depression or coping with feelings of sadness. If you have struggled with similar issues for sometime, it is likely that a longterm approach will be more appropriate. Weekly therapy can be a valuable resource in supporting you find out who you are; develop understanding of how your past experiences have influenced your present life; and allow time to build inner strengths and resilience.
It is also important to choose someone that you feel comfortable with and that has the expertise to help you. I am an experienced Child & Adult Psychotherapist, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have been working in this field since 1995.
I also offer an experiential therapy that uses horses in the outdoors. This is an international recognised team approach that helps people find their own solutions to problems in their lives. I offer this approach in North Cumbria and in the Scottish Borders, both locations are accessible from the M6/M74.
