About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I’m Leigh, and I am an integrative relational therapist. I choose to be integrative in my approach as I believe that the needs and story behind each individual are unique and a “one size fits all” ethos cannot be applied when it comes to therapy. Together we will find a style that works for you.

You might already have some understanding about yourself that you'd like to explore further (such as difficulties in your relationships, personality disorders, ADHD/ASD, self-esteem) or you may not know why you feel the way you do but understand you are ready for support. Either way, I can provide you with a safe space, where you can talk in a relaxed and informal way to explore what it is that brought you to therapy.

I can help you gain insight around your internalised beliefs, unconscious patterns and repeated behaviours that may dictate your life, so that you feel empowered to make healthier, more autonomous decisions. While you explore your emotions at a pace that is right for you, I will listen without making any judgements, seeking to help you overcome barriers and make progress on your journey.

Practice description

I enjoy working with people long-term to get to the root of what it is they are experiencing. Not just placing a small plaster over a large wound. I often work with clients who describe feeling left with a sense of “unfinished business” from previous short-term counselling and feel ready to explore themselves beyond a surface level.

Something I love about being a therapist is the opportunity to work with a wide diversity of clients. In particular, I have a lot of personal and clinical experience with neurodiversity, as well as gender, sex and relationship diversity (GSRD). I feel this is important to highlight as I am aware of the difficulties some clients may face in accessing therapy. I offer a safe and welcoming space to those looking to explore the challenges that are unique to them.

I love working both creatively and cognitively. This means I enjoy working alongside thinkers who want to be curious about themselves by joining the dots together; or with clients who like to play and create as part of their journey.

Whatever your situation, please feel free to contact me to find out more. I offer a free telephone consultation to help you decide whether I’d be a suitable therapist for you

My first session
