I offer a warm, non-judgemental, down-to-earth space to work through whatever you’re dealing with right now.
You might want to address a specific problem or concern; or you might want to explore deeper issues and patterns, gaining a greater understanding of yourself and your relationships in the process.
Weekly therapy allows you to freely explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you see the wood for the trees. It can give you greater understanding and insight into yourself and your approach to life and relationships, helping create the conditions for growth and change.
Exploring your past experiences, upbringing, and unconscious patterns and behaviour can also help make sense of what’s happening right here, right now. Importantly, you can start to develop new, kinder ways of understanding and relating to yourself. This includes the parts of yourself that you might judge, dislike or tend to shy away from.
I work with adults age 18 and over.
Areas I work with
My aim is to help you work through whatever’s worrying, upsetting, infuriating, confusing, or blocking you in some way.
This may be linked to all sorts of things, from your relationships, family, or work to your sense of self and self-esteem or perhaps feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety, shame, resentment or anger.
It might also be about your stage of life, sense of meaning and purpose, and decisions about what’s next.
You may not even be sure exactly what’s wrong – you just know something’s not working and you want some support.
Qualifications and Training
I’m a BACP-registered therapist (British Association for Counselling Professionals), with a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis Trust.
My approach is integrative and psychosynthesis-based. Psychosynthesis takes an all-encompassing view of who we are: this means working with mind, body, feelings, heart and soul, as well as intuition and will.
Working integratively means drawing on different therapy approaches and techniques, so we can find out what works best for you.
I hold the following qualifications:
- Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling – Psychosynthesis Trust (awarded by Middlesex University, accredited by the BACP and UKCP)
- Certificate in Psychosynthesis Foundations – Psychosynthesis Trust
- Foundations of Counselling and Psychotherapy – CCPE (Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy Education)
- MBCT (mindfulness-based cognitive therapy) foundational certificate – Oxford Mindfulness Centre
- Mindfulness-in-schools teaching certificate (secondary pupils) – Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP)
I’m also a training assistant at the Psychosynthesis Trust, London – a centre for self-development and counselling/psychotherapy training.
To arrange a short, free introductory phone call please e-mail me at [charlotte dot harry at gmail dot com].
I offer an initial session at the reduced fee of £55. This is a chance to explore what brings you to counselling and for you to ask any questions you might have. It will help us work out if we’re comfortable working together and I feel I can help. There’s no obligation to continue after this session.
If we decide to work together, we’ll commit to a minimum of 8 sessions initially, and then review. Sessions are once a week, for 50 minutes. The fee is £70.
