Isobel Harper BSc (Hons) MBACP
I am an Integrative counsellor, which means that I adapt my working style to meet the needs of each individual client. My primary training approach was Psychodynamic. I am an Accredited Supervisor.
I am a kind, gentle and caring person and I provide a non-judgemental,
calm and confidential environment to allow my clients to explore their feelings and issues. I will not give advice or tell you what to do. You are the expert on your own life but I will offer the space for you to explore your feelings and to be heard.
By exploring your own inner feelings, values and beliefs, I believe that we all have the inner resources to challenge our beliefs, gain the clarity we want and to move forward making more informed decisions.
In addition to seeing clients in Little Shelford, I also work at the Cogwheel Trust in Cambridge. The Cogwheel Trust is a charity in Cambridge which sees clients whose “life has slipped out of gear”. This has given me a wide and varied experience of working with all issues. I also work as a counsellor at Petals Charity at the Rosie Hospital. Petals specialises in working with individuals and couples who have suffered a trauma during pregnancy or birth. I used to be a staff counsellor at Addenbrookes Hospital and I also worked as a counsellor for CRUSE, the specialist bereavement charity
I am also a qualified supervisor offering supervision to other counsellors either individually or in groups.
