About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Lee and thank you for visiting my profile. I work with a range of differing clients aged 18 years plus. I have a special interest in anxiety and related issues, such as panic attacks and stress. My training in counselling and psychotherapy is aimed to help you understand what is taking place when experiencing strong feelings and emotions, whether they be due to anxiety, stress, panic attacks, low mood, self-harm or a range of other areas. We then work together by talking, to look at the future you would like, without fear or sadness, anxiety or stress.

Practice description

Life can have a way of helping us feel that things aren’t right. This can be when we feel that we 'should’ be happier than we are, or following the funk of a global pandemic. It may be that you are feeling anxious or fearful, or are negotiating a life change, such as a redundancy, divorce or bereavement. For young adults issues can involve anxiety, exam or assessment stress, or issues fitting in. Whatever your issue, talking about thoughts and feelings can often help us feel better about them, or about changes we would like to make. I am here to help.

My first session

A free telephone or Zoom consultation precedes our first session, where you get to ask as much as you like. I can get to know a bit about you and talk about where I can help. Also, how you would like to meet, whether by Zoom (due to COVID) or 'walk and talk' sessions in the outdoors.

In our first actual session, we chat about what isn’t feeling right, and where you would like things to be different. You may know, and you may not- both of which are okay! Either way, we discuss outcomes, your timescales, and the journey of counselling.
