Philip Harris MA Adv.Dip. UKCP, BPC, FPC
I am a psychotherapist with more than twenty five years experience of face to face work. I offer a confidential service in the High Wycombe area that provides both long term therapy and brief focussed counselling. I have much experience working with a wide range of issues which include, generalised and specific anxiety, depression, anger problems, relationship issues, family issues, stress, confidence and self esteem issues and more listed below.
I also provide therapy to counsellors in training, and have been tutoring and mentoring both trainee and qualified counsellors for several years.
I am an accredited member of the "United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy " and I adhere to the "Code of Ethics."
My core training is psychodynamic which can be viewed as an in depth model of psychotherapy where an understanding of past experiences inform us about how we react to current situations. This model encourages reflection rather than reaction and often new ways of thinking emerge during the course of the treatment. However, I do have experience using techniques from different models of counselling both as a practitioner and a supervisor of counselling work.
One of the aims of counselling is to improve the quality of the life of the individual seeking help; and I have come to believe, with motivation and commitment to the therapeutic process, this generally does occur.
