Natalie Harris MSc, BSc, AdHyp; BACP, CNHC BAHA and CAH member

My name is Natalie Harris and I am an Integrative, Dynamic Therapist, Solution Focused Coach, N.L.P Practitioner, Advanced Hypnotherapist, Reiki Healer, Master and Teacher, Shamanic and Spiritual Healing Therapist, Holistic Massage Therapist and qualified Person-Centred Counsellor.

I have been practicing as a therapist since qualifying as an Advanced Hypnotherapist in 2014 and have since then completed an MSc in Counselling and Positive Psychology, BSc in Psychology, together with Shamanic Practitioner and Healer, Reiki Healer, Master and Teacher and Massage therapy training. I have extensive knowledge of traditional and holistic approaches to therapy having completed courses in Mindfulness and accreditation in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), including Tapping and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred Counselling and Solution Focused Counselling and Coaching.

I have followed a spiritual path for all my adult life, which has driven my appreciation and passion for the healing arts and recognition of the benefits of a holistic approach whilst on my own healing journey; and a desire to share the benefits of traditional and holistic therapeutic approaches with others which resulted in my completion of vast holistic and professional training. As a good therapist should, I have an extensive tool bag, something to suit every client’s needs, and help them heal, and empowering them to recognise the healing abilities of their own mind, body, spirit, and soul. I facilitate the healing journey by empowering clients whilst holding them in a safe, therapeutic, nurturing, healing space, which for me is always an honour and privilege.

Solution Focused Coaching (SFC)

I have extensive training in a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques which can be integrated in sessions, which I base around several approaches including Solution Focused Coaching, (SFC) which is particularly useful if clients have an idea of what is the root of their issues, or have a specific behaviour which they would like to alter. This approach can be particularly useful as it allows the client to play an active part in the therapeutic process, by setting goals and activities to work on in between sessions, and creates a strong sense of f accomplishment and achievement, and is very effective where traditional counselling or therapeutic approaches have not quite addressed the problem for clients.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (N.L.P)

Sessions can be focused around Neuro Linguistic Programming, which is based on the concept of how we use language (including self-talk), affects our experience, and by looking at the used at and altered to a more favourable use of language, which will in turn effect our expectation and experiences, to more favourable and agreeable outcome.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (M.B.C.T)

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, (MBCT) offers a unique subtle approach to therapy, where clients are taught simple meditations to use within and between sessions, which allow any discomfort within the mind or body to be acknowledged and noticed. This allows for any fear regarding it to be reduced, and in turn the symptom be that fear, pain, discomfort or anxiety is also reduced. This approach is particularly effective with ongoing issues such as pain management.

Having recently completed an MSc in Positive Psychology I have a great appreciation for new and revised therapeutic approaches, which focus on positive behaviours and attributes such as Positive Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, (MBCT). I also offer Emotional Freedom Techniques, (EFT) including Tapping Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, (NLP) which can be included in counselling sessions, or as stand-alone sessions to further assist clients in overcoming poor life experiences, and moving forwards to a healthier more fulfilling way of being.

Am I ready for Dynamic Therapy

Classic research by Prochaska and DiClementi in 1982, identified various issues which may draw clients to counselling which include repeating negative behaviour or poor life choices, problems, issues and anything that is causing discomfort, difficulty or uncertainty. They identified several stages at which clients may engage with counselling, which are helpful for clients to access whether they may benefit from the therapeutic process in order to move forward.

You may not feel that you are experiencing any difficulties, but may have had counselling suggested by a healthcare professional, colleague, family member or friend. You could be aware of experiencing difficulties in life, but are not sure how counselling or any therapy could help. Perhaps you are fully aware you are experiencing difficulties and would like to find ways of dealing with them more effectively. You may be ready to deal with any difficulties in your life, but are not quite sure how to do this alone. Or you may even have fully acknowledged your difficulties and know that it is time to recover from them and move forwards with your life.

Where ever you may be in life, counselling is a highly effective therapy, allowing you to voice your own thoughts, feelings and experiences, in a safe supportive space, which assist you to move forwards from any difficulties which you have or be experiencing, and heal.

What to expect from a Dynamic Therapy Session

Having training extensively in person-centred counselling, I fully appreciate the power and therapeutic benefit of being able to speak openly and freely about feelings and experiences in a safe, supportive therapeutic space, and I pride myself in creating this for every client.

There are very few times, if any in everyday life where there is the opportunity to really speak from the heart about experiences, for fear of judgement, embarrassment, or misunderstanding, which may result in feelings being suppressed, and experiences minimised or brushed over, which can lead to limiting beliefs and poor life choices, affecting all aspects of health and wellbeing, and cause long-term, unnecessary suffering and harm.

This is where professional therapy can be transformational, by providing that safe, supportive space in which to hear you own voice and be heard, to understand, accept and find peace with life experiences, and what was, what is, and what could be, is incredibly empowering, something which I would like more people to benefit from; and seeing clients find acceptance and make peace with life and find their power, makes my work as an Integrative Dynamic Therapist, incredibly rewarding.

In addition to Person-Centred Counselling, I have extensive training in a variety of therapeutic approaches and psychotherapy techniques which can be integrated in sessions, if agreeable to the client including Solution Focused Coaching, (SFC) which is particularly useful if clients have an idea of what is the root of their issues, or have a specific behaviour which they would like to alter. This approach can be particularly useful as it allows the client to play an active part in the therapeutic process, by setting goals and activities to work on in between sessions, and creates a strong sense of accomplishment and achievement.

Having recently completed an MSc in Positive Psychology I have a great appreciation for new and revised therapeutic approaches, which focus on positive behaviours and attributes such as Positive Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, (MBCT). I also offer Emotional Freedom Techniques, (EFT) including Tapping Therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming, (NLP) which can be included in counselling sessions, or as stand-alone sessions to further assist clients in overcoming poor life experiences, and moving forwards to a healthier more fulfilling way of being.
