Tamsin Harlow MBACP, BA (Hons), Dip.
My aim as a counsellor is to provide you with an opportunity to talk about your problems, fears, anxieties, hopes or aspirations in a confidential and non-judgemental space. I do not claim to be an expert on your feelings, only you can know how it feels to be you, but I do hope that through offering you a space in which you feel safe, heard and valued you will feel able to open up, explore your feelings and live a more fulfilled life.
I have a particular interest in and a great deal of experience working with young people or students. If you have a son or daughter whom you feel could benefit from talking things through with someone, please do contact me.
Research shows that counselling works best when we feel comfortable and at ease with our chosen therapist and that feeling listened to, accepted and understood is really important. For this reason, I offer an initial meeting in which you can experience the way I work and decide whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you. I charge £25 to secure your appointment.
I have worked with a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, low self-esteem, domestic violence, stress and trauma. I offer short and long-term therapy to young people and adults.
