About me and my therapy practice
Warm, creative, accepting, therapy for young people, adults and families.
Whether you are young or old, I work with care to empower you to grow; to have a compassionate understanding of your past and to feel comfortable, warm and whole in the present.
Nat Le Pla @ Therapy Huddersfield
I work with a range of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, work related stress and bereavement in ways that research has shown are effective. We will collaborate to choose a pathway which suits you and supports you on your journey. Most clients make significant progress in between 6 and 12 sessions.
I offer face to face sessions at my comfortable and relaxing room in Edgerton, Huddersfield. There is easy access from across West Yorkshire being 5 mins from the M62 and we have a large car park. The office is large enough to allow social distancing and the building is cleaned regularly.
As well as face to face sessions I also work both online (WhatsApp video and Zoom) and on the telephone. I have worked online for some time and find it really effective. New clients have expressed how quickly they relax and feel comfortable.
Please feel free to call or email me – I’m always happy to discuss individual circumstances and needs.
If you would prefer I offer home visits across West Yorkshire.
I specialise in working compassionately with adults who have experienced Trauma and Adversity in Childhood. Modern therapies such as Internal Family Systems support clients to come to a gentle acceptance of their past and help them grow and develop in the present.
I have extensive experience of working with young people and offer a warm, supportive atmosphere building trusting relationships. I understand that growing up is hard and that manging the emotions that accompany difficult life events is not easy. I provide a safe space for young people to explore their emotions and work through their problems.
As a therapist my aim is to provide therapy that supports you. I have extensive training and can explain to you how different approaches may benefit your particular situation.
I initially trained in Person Centred Therapy. I have had further training in CBT, Transactional Analysis and Trauma Informed Practice. I specialise in applying recent breakthroughs in the understanding of Complex Trauma, C-PTSD and Anxiety to support clients who may have been struggling for many years.
Many clients suffer from the crippling effects of Anxiety. I use research based techniques (Polyvagal Theory, Compassion Focussed Therapy) to support them to understand how and why anxiety affects them. Clients often surprise themselves as they make very real progress in reducing their fears and worries.
I hold a degree in Psychology, BSc (Hons) (Level 6) from Sheffield University, and a Certificate in Counselling (Level 6) and a Post Graduate Diploma (PgDIP.) in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Level 7) from the University of Salford. I am a registered member of the BACP and I hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
My previous work in senior leadership and management means I have the depth of experience to support clients from varied professional backgrounds. I bring this knowledge along with my wide-ranging life experience to support each individual client in a personal and bespoke fashion.
I am here to support you, no matter the fear, issue, or stress.
