“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”
Viktor E. Frankl

My name is Val Harmer and as a Solution Focused Therapist my role is to help you make sense of why you are struggling and to help you understand what may have caused the problem and what is keeping it going.

Whilst I can’t wave a magic wand I can help you to see why you may be getting stuck and what might need to change for you to move forward and get back on track. Solution Focused therapy is collaborative, we work together to identify and make the changes needed to help break unhelpful cycles of behaviour.

Therapy sessions are confidential and you can trust me to fully listen to you without judgment. I will ask you a lot of questions, so that we can really become aware of all of the different parts of your problem and you can count on me to give you respectful feedback and guidance about your situation.

I work with a wide range of emotional problems and mental health difficulties like anxiety, low self esteem, anger, ocd, phobias, depression, bereavement and relationship issues. My approach is pragmatic and change focused and I offer both brief and longer term work depending on your goals for therapy.

Please take time to look around my website to find out more about the services I offer and if you would like to set up an appointment or have a free phone consult, please get in touch.
