Sarah Harris (She/Her)
BSc Psych, MC, RCC
From a young age, I have been drawn to people and to their stories. I wanted to know more about them and how their past, present, and future experiences shaped their lives so far. This passion for psychology, alongside my desire to learn and understand more about my own journey, has led me to this career, which I am so grateful for.
Originally from Kelowna, I completed my BSc in Psychology in Nottingham, England, in 2003 and following this, trained as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in London. This skill and technique allowed my clients to access their unconscious mind with more ease and with that, gain personal insights, learn new ways of being, and make their desired changes. It also provides tools for mindfulness and relaxation, shown to be essential in both learning and maintaining life changes.
During the 13 years I lived in the UK, I married my wonderful husband and we grew into our family with 3 beautiful children. Enticed back by the fantastic quality of life that the Okanagan offers, as well as a supportive community of friends and neighbours, our family relocated to Kelowna in 2013 and we have not been disappointed!
As a life-long learner, I am committed to further education, research, and the practice of theory, tools, and resources that will best serve each individual client. I recently completed the Circle of Security Parenting™ training, focusing on the importance of emotional bonds and attachment needs, which continues to influence and guide my work with individuals, couples, families, and groups.
I know only too well how difficult change can be, especially when we are feeling overwhelmed, distressed, or hopeless. Asking for help, sharing your story and expressing your needs takes courage, and I offer a safe, secure space to do this. I feel truly privileged to witness people’s life stories and support my clients as they learn new healthy ways to think, behave, and feel.
