My Approach to Helping

I'm Harris, a psychotherapist, philosophical counsellor, and psychologist based in Edinburgh. I partner with couples and individuals to help them overcome challenges and lead better lives. I offer counseling in person and through Skype.

Because your problems and aspirations are complex and unique, I avoid one size fits all approaches. I tailor my style to your needs, developing a new style of therapy for each client. I draw coherently from my extensive knowledge of different psychotherapeutic approaches to develop creative and effective psychotherapy and coaching programs that are tailored and adapted to your specific challenges and goals.

I also offer a space that fosters a warm, accepting and empathetic relationship between us, because it is important that you feel safe and comfortable, so that you can open up and understand and process your painful experiences. I support you to heal so you can become who you are meant to be.

If you would like to find out more about the way I work, please visit my website.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.
