Michelle Magri is a chartered counselling psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS). Her six-year training includes a BSc in Counselling and Psychology followed by doctoral level training in Counselling Psychology. Michelle started her career working as a specialist counselling psychologist in the NHS. She then moved into private practice at Harley Therapy in London, offering psychological therapy and contributing to the operational side of business, particularly recruitment and quality assurance of treatment.
Michelle works with adults, adolescents (16 and above) and couples. Her approach is largely integrative. That is, she is trained across a wide range of evidence-based and long-established psychological and psychotherapeutic approaches, and will integrate clinically relevant elements from these different but overlapping interventions when she assesses and treats difficulties. Michelle typically draws from Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mentalisation-based Therapy, Attachment Therapy, and Schema Therapy, in addition to developmental, social, behavioural and cognitive psychological theories.
Michelle’s warm and collaborative approach is aimed at creating an environment which allows you to talk freely and directly. Michelle will be curious with you in trying to understand what motivates you, and attentive to the ways in which you think, feel and behave. She is keen to understand how you experience yourself and your relationships, so that she can help you to lead a life that is meaningful and satisfying.
Michelle sees continued professional development as essential if she is to keep up to date with relevant theories and research findings. She routinely attends specialty training seminars and workshops, ensuring that her clinical practice is informed by treatment models with demonstrated clinical effectiveness.
Michelle is skilled in working with a range of psychological difficulties, including emotional difficulties (e.g., loneliness, guilt, anger, shame, discontentment, inferiority), depression, anxiety disorders (including panic, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, worry), personality disorders (PD), self-harm, relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues, sexual difficulties, eating disorders, substance abuse and dependency, traumatic experiences and PTSD, transitional difficulties, and sexual and emotional abuse.
