Hello, my name is Rosie Harris. I practice Relational TA Psychotherapy and I work in the Exeter area. If you work with me, you will experience contact, compassion and safety.
My goal is to meet clients exactly where they are, in whatever they are experiencing. I don’t make any judgments or criticisms. I want to carefully explore what is really difficult for you, approaching whatever issues you are having with a high level of kindness and attention.
I practice using relational Transactional Analysis (TA). This puts the relationship between the client and the therapist at the center of the work. I’ll pay attention to how we both impact each other when we talk. You’ll be listened to and attuned to, with the support of another person to help you make sense of your difficulties. This way of working can help you to understand why things are impacting you, and how to process and resolve this as much as possible.
I’ve been practicing in Devon for the past 6 years. I currently work at the University of Exeter Wellbeing Centre as part of their free counselling service for students. Prior to that I volunteered at a charity in Exmouth called the Quiet Mind Centre. I have a special interest in working with young adults, which makes my work at the University very fulfilling.
In terms of my training, I completed a certificate in Advanced TA Studies at the Iron Mill College. Previous to this I studied my degree in Psychology. I have also been an additional member of staff for the TA Foundation Year at the Iron Mill and speak regularly on behalf of the TA course at open days.
I am confident in working with a whole range of client presentations – from individuals who are just having a few problems to those who are looking for something longer term. I work with couples. I have experienced and enjoy working with clients over short and long term contracts.
