Rita Morris MBACP Counsellor Psychotherapist
Are you looking for peace of mind?
Are you looking to improve your relationships?
Are you looking to create a satisfying life?
Do you want to resolve past hurt?
To feel the grips of depression and anxiety, to feel lost and isolated can be very frightening, confusing and dis-empowering. To visit the places that scare us takes courage but I believe that this is the first step to creating a more positive and constructive way of being. It is my belief and experience that counselling can effectively illuminate the path to wellbeing and personal empowerment, so therefore, be no longer dictated by our outdated beliefs, fears, past mistakes or experiences. Getting to truly know yourself I believe is one of the most important rewarding journeys you will ever take.
I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I have extensive experience working in a number of settings including an NHS brief intervention service, an alcohol and substance misuse organisation and a domestic violence support centre. I am also a qualified EFT Practitioner.
I have a Certificate and Diploma in Counselling and a Post Graduate Certificate and Diploma in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work from an integrative approach using a person centred core model offering the core conditions, and I fluidly utilise other techniques from other schools of therapy depending on your individual needs and preferences. It is my experience that no one size fits all; we are all as individual as our finger prints.
If you feel I am the right therapist for you or if you have any questions please give me a call...and a huge well done for taking the first step!

I am a member of the BACP (please feel free to check the BACP website) and work within the BACP ethical guidelines. My dominant approach is person centred and I display the core conditions throughout my practice.
I integrate techniques from various therapy models and I have found the benefits of extending the Person Centred approach to be quick and affective dependant on individual needs.
