Harriet Gleeson PGDip MBACP Counsellor and Psychotherapist
Hi, I'm Harriet. I am a compassionate and straight talking therapist supporting people like you seeking clarity and fulfilment.
Are you constantly striving for the next thing but never feeling good enough no matter what you achieve? Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others and feel like you are behind? Perhaps you strive to achieve perfection and berate yourself if you don't reach the high expectations that you set yourself? Or maybe you are holding back at work or in relationships through self-doubt, fear of failure or being hurt and let down. It can be hard to find a way forward. I get it.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. I have 10 years experience working in a variety of inpatient and community mental health and addiction services with adults and young people. I provide a warm and confidential space to explore what might be troubling you. I have experience working with a variety of issues including anxiety, stress, low self-esteem and confidence, shame, burnout, gender identity and relationship/family problems.
I have a specialist interest in addiction and compulsive behaviours, such as alcohol, drugs, exercise or any other process. Previous roles include working at the Priory in both their Nottingham and Roehamption sites; a substance misuse counsellor at Derbyshire Recovery Partnership and my current role as a drug and alcohol worker at Change, Grow, Live alongside my private practice. I also work with family members and have lived experience of a loved one struggling with addiction. I understand this painful, powerless and desperate place. Perhaps you have found yourself putting the needs of others first for so long now that it can be difficult to recognise or communicate your own. I can help.
Together we can work through the issues that are holding you back to become your best self and find inner peace, healing and happiness.
If it sounds like you would like to work with me, or would like to find out a bit more; I welcome you to call or email me to arrange a free 15 minute no obligation telephone call.
I am currently working online and therefore able to offer sessions to clients from all over the UK and abroad.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
