About me and my therapy practice
1. General Information About Me and My Service:
Hello, I'm Leah, a compassionate and empathic counsellor dedicated to supporting individuals through life's challenges. My approach is person-centred, non-judgemental, and grounded in care and understanding. I believe in the power of connection and the potential for personal growth.
My services encompass a wide range of issues, from bereavement and grief to various forms of trauma, including but not limited to:
Loss of a baby
Suicidal thoughts and self-harm
Depression and anxiety
Victims of trafficking
Bullying and its effects
Autism and learning difficulties
Mental health challenges
Sexual health problems
I understand that everyone's journey is unique, and there's no set time frame for recovery. I've personally experienced multiple bereavements, which has given me insight into the importance of a non-Judgmental, safe, and supportive environment to navigate life's challenges.
2. Training, Qualifications, and Experience:
With over 10 years of experience in mental health, I specialize in assisting individuals with learning disabilities and autism, from ages 6 and above into adulthood. My qualifications include:
BA (Hons) in Early Childhood
