Michelle Harris MBACP, Counsellor and Psychotherapist (MSc)
Why have counselling?
Are you experiencing difficulties in your life and feel that talking to someone could help? I believe that counselling can provide you with a safe and confidential relationship whereby you are able to share and explore what's going on for you with a therapist trained to help make sense of the problem and to support you. This space allows for problems to be thought through, helping you to find insight and clarity.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, as well as Cancer Nurse Specialist and work with anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, illness, cancer, bereavement, relationship issues and all aspects of our lives. I work with young people and adults on a short term or long term basis, whatever your needs are. My training allows me to work with your individual needs, and so I do not work with any particular approach. I have a warm and down to earth approach that I believe can help.
I understand that making that first step towards asking for help can feel very daunting and difficult. If you feel that counselling could help you, please feel free to contact me by email or phone and we can discuss this more. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.
