Ms Woodruff, who is taking over from psychotherapeutic counsellor Marianne Downie, said:

“My vision for The Harlow is to continue to build a strong team of psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches, and allied health professionals so we can provide exactly the right individualised support for you.

“I am also keen to provide these services to people who would not normally be able to access them as I strongly believe everyone deserves the best possible care.”

Ms Woodruff also said she was passionate about making mental health support accessible from a young age.
