About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Leah, a considered and resourceful counsellor with a caring, warm, supportive nature and a desire to help others help themselves.
I believe that often we can be out of tune with ourselves, having little time for self-reflection, not knowing ourselves, our motivations, or why we do things we do.
We can get caught up in our stories and reliving the same experiences often learnt in childhood. This can lead to feelings such as anger and frustration, being reactive, anxious, feeling stuck or unhappy.
I’m an integrative counsellor trained in Psychodynamic theory, Person Centred Approach and Cognitive Behavioural therapy which means I draw on these modalities to best suit your needs.
All are welcome, I have experience working with all ages from 11 years to retirement and people from many cultural backgrounds, LGBTQ+ friendly.
I offer time for you to get comfortable with sharing your life.
To come and explore issues you have experienced and start to better understand and yourself and those around you. Doing this will help you to prioritise what is important to you and be less punishing on yourself or others, learning to live a life that is self-aware and ultimately more fulfilling.
I do this by offering a space;
- in which we develop a relationship in which you feel heard and understood,
-safe and not judged,
- cultivating an environment for opportunity and learning.
My first session
Initially we will chat to establish what you hope to get from counselling, to answer any questions you may have and decide whether you would like to meet face to face or online.
Our first session will include a brief assessment and give you an opportunity to see if you feel we can work together, it will be 50 minutes long and is at the reduced rate of £40.00.
If you decide that you would like to start working together additional sessions are priced at £60.00.
