I am Kathryn Harriss, a counsellor and therapist for adults, adolescents and children, having been in practice for over 4 years. My experience reaches from working with first school children, right up to sixth form and beyond into adulthood. I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling & Therapy as well as a Diploma in Counselling Children & Adolescents.
My training and experience have given me an appreciation of the different aspects of how we might feel at each developmental stage but also to recognise that we might stumble anywhere along the way. And that's OK. Sometimes, we all need a little support from speaking to someone whom we don't know but is experienced in listening helpfully. Often, I can help clients to throw light onto and expand upon something which, on the surface, seems unimportant. A situation described as 'by the way' might be one we think is not in our power to change or even think about but through deeper exploration becomes less powerful and something we can move on from so that we are on our way, not standing helpless, by it.
My integrative model of working is a fusion of a humanistic and psychodynamic approaches, as well as solution focussed work. Ultimately, I am able to adapt and tailor the way I work according to your needs.
As a Registered Member of the BACP, I work to their Ethical Framework and of course, I am fully insured and hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate.
