Judi Harrison MBACP
I am a person centred counsellor. I am passionate about helping people to become the best version of themselves. I have experience of working with young people and adults and I firmly believe that early intervention is the key to improving mental health and emotional issues. Behaviours such as self-harming often have an underlying emotional issue which I can enable the client to talk about. I have experience of working with young people and adults who have had varying issues including depression, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts, self-harm, sexuality issues, school and exam stresses, anxiety and family problems. There can be so many issues that affect young people and I believe that person centred counselling is the key to allowing a young person to get the best of their teenage years and to progress into a fulfilling adulthood.
I am experienced with the survivors of trauma, rape and child abuse. I have worked with clients who have survived the most horrific trauma and who want to find a way of living with their memories and feelings. Each person's journey through counselling is different and I want to be able to help them at this time.
I am currently using zoom for video counselling and doing phone counselling. I know that these methods may be new to you but they do work well once you get used to them!

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.
