My name is Leigh and I am a qualified counsellor with 7+ years of training/practicing. Registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) which ensures that I adhere to the Ethical Framework for Good Practice. It ensures that I practice safely and ethically with every client. I regularly attend supervision to review my work and ensure that I continue to work safely.
I believe that each client is unique. As a Psychotherapist, I am able to offer you a flexible approach, whereby we can discover what works best for you, and build a relationship, exploring your problems together. I offer a confidential, safe and quiet space in which we can begin to explore your thoughts, feelings and memories, without fear of judgement.
I am a Humanistic Integrative counsellor which means I incorporate a number of theories (Gestalt, TA, Psychodynamic) which are best suited to each client enabling their therapeutic journey to achieve their desired outcome. My core is person-centred which means that I believe each client has the innate tendency to make the changes they desire, providing the core conditions are in place (Congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy).
