Harriette Atkins MBACP
At this particularly challenging time, we are likely to experience increased levels of anxiety and find ourselves facing situations or challenges which we can find distressing and difficult to cope with. Having a safe, confidential space to feel heard and explore what is going on can be extremely beneficial.
I believe that for those needing help, counselling is an essential need and will therefore be keeping my practice open. I am taking all precautions possible to prevent any transmission of the virus. Should any existing or prospective client prefer to have a consultation via Skype, Facetime or simply by telephone, then I am happy to do that also. Please just let me know what is best for you.
I have 12 years of experience of working with a broad range of issues for individuals, including: relationships, depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, redundancy, anger management and self esteem. More specifically, covering areas such as OCD, eating disorders, physical, psychological and sexual abuse, and post traumatic stress disorder (PSTD).
With regards to PTSD, I have specific experience of working with the armed forces and emergency services.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor registered by the British Association for Counselling (BACP). My training in a range of therapeutic techniques enable me to tailor my approach for each person.
In addition to my private practice I also work as a counsellor in occupational health and with GP referrals.
My counselling practice is located in a quiet private setting in Camberley, and is easily accessible for the surrounding areas of Frimley, Bagshot, Lightwater, West End, Windlesham, Chobham, Deepcut, Frimley Green, Farnborough, Ascot, Sunninghill and Sunningdale.
Training, qualifications & experience

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.
