Hello, my name is Lisa Harris, I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist, with an MSc (Distinction) in Integrative psychotherapy, which I gained at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute with Staffordshire university. I offer psychotherapy and clinical supervision.
Integrative psychotherapy entails different relational and developmental theories blended together to provide therapy to suit each individual, as there are many approaches that can help. Which theories and modalities are blended depends on an individual’s experiences. In Integrative psychotherapy we will also work together on integrating feeling, thought and behaviour. The outcome of integration is to feel whole, content and find new ways of being that feel a fit for you. New ways of being, will bring about changes, improving your mental, emotional and often physical well-being.

I have worked as an accredited therapist for four years in private practice and three years in the NHS in a mental health setting.
