Katie Harmar BA(hons) Humanistic Counselling MBACP (Accred)
Are you suffering from a relationship breakdown, life changes or depression? or perhaps you are struggling with alcohol or substance dependencies.
I can offer you my experience and training, to help you overcome your difficulties so that you can move forward in your life.
If you want to focus on a particular issue, you may find a short course of between six and twelve sessions can lead to highly successful outcomes and positive changes within your life.
If you have a broader focus in mind, long term individual therapy may be your best option. Often many seemingly isolated issues stem from one main problem. Long term therapy allows us to explore those deep rooted difficulties and from here, you can progress towards a more positive state of mind.
I welcome university students, and have all the necessary qualifications and BACP accreditation to work with student counsellors.
I also offer counselling supervision to other therapists who are welcome to contact me. To find out more, visit www.kateharmarcounselling.co.uk
I am a highly qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and supervisor working with adults/couples/young people and organisations.
I have a degree in humanistic counselling and became accredited with BACP (British Association for Counselling and psychotherapy) in 2006. I use a variety of techniques within my work. My background is humanistic however I often draw upon CBT techniques. I have more recently been incorporating a more psycho analytic style to my work. This flexible approach helps me get the best possible understanding of how you experience the world.
I have run my own practice for a number of years and am available during the day and some evenings.
I also welcome couples, and have enjoyed helping many to find successful resolutions.
All counselling takes place in a purpose built therapy room, this ensures that all sessions are conducted in a confidential environment. There is plenty of onsite parking.

The term accreditation means an individual therapist. after gaining qualification at either Diploma, BA, or MA level, has undergone a rigorous assessment process of their work and ability to put theory into practice via case studies, evidence of a sound understanding of their governing bodies ethical framework and a substantial amount of client contact hours. This process can take over two years to complete.

Supervision & training
Sometimes as counsellors we can feel pushed and pulled in many directions and everything feels as if it is put into question. I work with counsellors with many different levels of experience, many working towards a counselling qualification. I aim to enable you to value your own ideas and feelings through discussion and exploration, so you can become more confident in the way you practice.View supervision profile
