About me and my therapy practice
My name is Leebert Hughes. I am a person centred counsellor with twenty four years experience as a counsellor and sixteen years experience as a supervisor. Eighteen years working in the NHS as a senior counsellor and supervisor, working as a volunteer counsellor in my local community and nationally and working in private practice in a multicultural setting has enhanced my knowledge and skills.
Over the years I have gained a wide range of knowledge and experience in counselling and supervision. Working with a variety of presenting issues and a diverse range of cultural groups. I am registered with the BACP and work within their ethical framework, my aim is to create a safe therapeutic environment which enable change and growth in therapy.
My first session
In the first session we will discuss confidentiality, contracting, your goals for therapy, agree on time and frequency and cost of the sessions. We will explore what brought you to therapy and the issues you wish to work through in the session. I will also answer any questions you might want to ask me, explain which type of therapy I am offering and my experience as a counsellor. Discuss any risk issues and what would make you feel safe enough to explore your difficulties, to foster awareness, change, growth and empowerment.
In this session we will lay the foundation, which will allow us to develop a safe therapeutic relationship and create a safe environment, to promote open and honest discussions and meaningful change and development.
