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:

Relationship/marriage breakdowns

Work-related stress

Loss of a baby

Victims of trafficking

Bullying and its effects

Autism and learning difficulties


Mental health challenges

Low self-esteem

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

Level 5 in Therapeutic Counselling

I have honed my expertise at the Oldham Bereavement Centre, specializing in loss and grief. My work there involves supporting individuals facing various traumas, fostering resilience, and facilitating personal growth.
