About me and my therapy practice

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist specialising in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy within a person-centred framework, drawing on a range of therapeutic models such as Person-Centred Counselling, Positive Psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. When appropriate, I also use creative approaches and am trained to work in Sand Tray and Small World therapy. I have recently started Walk and Talk Therapy. Both the rooms I use are close to lovely places to walk.

Practice description

I work with adults and young people and occasionally with children aged 8 or over. I have particularly extensive experience of working with teenagers, having worked as Head of Counselling for seven years in a large secondary school. I also work as a counselling supervisor.

I am available to work from rooms in Warwick or Leamington Spa or by Zoom or by telephone.

Please do visit my website www.megharper.co.uk to find out more about me, the way I work and the issues I can particularly help with. That, I think,  will be more help to you than a simple list.

About me and my therapy practice

My main model for counselling is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy  but within a person-centred framework, drawing on a range of therapeutic models such as Person-Centred Counselling, Positive Psychology and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. When appropriate, I also use creative approaches and am trained to work in Sand Tray and Small World therapy.

In addition to working with adults, I have a specialism in working with young people, especially those over the age of 10.

Practice description

I work from rooms in Warwick or Leamington Spa or am happy to work on Zoom or on the telephone. I am able to work on some evenings as well as during the daytime.

For a more detailed impression of my practice and the way I work, please visit my website: www.megharper.co.uk. (Although my full name is Margaret, I am always known as Meg.) 

As a professionally trained counsellor and therapist, I am willing to work with a wide range of mental and emotional issues but I am not qualified at present to work with eating disorders or to do couples or group work.  I can also provide life coaching and personal development work and, as a practising Quaker, have an particular interest in matters of the spirit.


My first session

My first session will be 50 minutes long. My aim is to help my clients to share their personal stories and what has led to them seeking therapy. This is also an opportunity for the client to assess whether they are comfortable working with me and I will aim to assess whether I will be able to work effectively with them. The session will also include collecting some essential administrative details.

Availability

Limited availability in the short term. I anticipate considerably more availability from the beginning of September 2021.

About me and my therapy practice

My lead model is CBT but this is underpinned by my training and commitment to a person-centred approach. I also use ACT, Positive Psychology and some creative therapies in my work and have had training or experience in other models such as TA and logotherapy. My work could be described as integrative or eclectic but it is heavily influenced by the cognitive and humanistic models. 

Practice description

In my own supervision, I enjoy working with supervisors working in different models from my own, as this is more challenging and I learn more that way. I am therefore happy to work with supervisees using different models from mine. When working with students, however, it is more appropriate, I believe, to work with a supervisor who understands one's own model so students whom I supervise are usually working towards qualifications in CBT.

I have extensive experience working with young people, so am qualified to supervise those working as school counsellors or in similar roles.

I work from rooms in Warwick and Leamington Spa or I am happy to work on Zoom or by telephone.

Please do visit my website: www.megharper.co.uk to find out more about me and the way I work.

My first session

In your first session, which will be 50 minutes long, I aim to give you the opportunity to find out about me and to see whether you would feel comfortable working with me. I will also assess whether I think I would be a helpful and effective supervisor for you. I will aim to find out about your experience and journey so far, the context in which you work, your caseload and your modalities. I will also need to collect some basic administrative details.
