Natasha Harris Bsc PGDip MBACP (Accred)
I design practical, personalised psychotherapy sessions for clients experiencing anxiety, stress or depression. I also coach professionals in large advisory firms and financial companies, helping them navigate difficult and challenging periods at work as well as ensuring that they are in the mindset that allows them to perform to the best of their ability.
My techniques are practical, easy to use and include:
-exploring current beliefs about yourself, others and the situations in which you find yourself
-looking at the ways you currently behave as a result of those beliefs
-putting new thoughts, ideas and ways of responding into practice
Having worked in some of London’s leading communications agencies and brands for over 12 years, I specialise in, by am not limited to, working with professionals either at their place of work or at my own premises.
For those leading busy lives, it can be difficult to leave work early or arrive late in order to fit sessions in. I therefore offer Skype sessions so that clients can simply take an hour out of their working day without leaving the office.
Training, qualifications & experience
I obtained my qualifications to practice at Regent’s University, undertook additional training at The Samaritans and SANE and taken part Continued Professional Development (CPD) sessions at The Tavistock and Portman, Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre and many more approved by the British Psychological Society. I have also been lucky enough to take part in CBT training with the internationally renowned Christine Padesky, author of Mind Over Mood.
I’ve worked at a specialist Bereavement Centre in East London and as a volunteer Psychotherapist at Therapy4Healing. This social enterprise offers 1-2-1 Psychotherapy to individuals on low incomes in East London.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£65 - £85
I am recognised by many of the main private health insurers such as AXA so if you have such insurance, it is worth checking with them to see if therapy sessions are covered in your package.
If this is something you think you may be interested in, please feel free to get in touch either by phone or via the email form. I hold an introductory meeting with all potential clients before booking in further sessions so that together, we can decide if my approach is right for you.
