Elizabeth (Lilla) Harris BA Hons Humanistic Counselling
At certain times in our lives our usual coping mechanisms can become exhausted leaving us anxious and unable to see our way through difficulties. Finding a counsellor that suits you is not easy so I hope the information that follows helps you decide if I might be the person that you feel comfortable working with.
I believe 'everyone' has the ability to overcome the most traumatic experiences, adapt and evolve themselves to go on and live a healthy and positive life. I provide a professional, confidential and non-judgmental environment for individuals needing to experience positive changes to their emotional, physical and mental health. I work on a flexible, long term or short term basis.
At the moment I offer sessions online, by telephone, or an outside walking talking session.

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.
