Hello there! I'm a dedicated and compassionate counsellor who believes in the transformative power of self-discovery and personal growth. My name is Leif, and I'm here to accompany you on your journey towards a happier, more fulfilling life. As a firm believer in the idea that we all have the capacity for positive change, my counselling philosophy revolves around creating a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Through empathy, active listening, and evidence-based therapeutic techniques, I aim to help you navigate life's challenges and unlock your inner potential.
Among the issues I have worked through with previous clients are: low self-esteem; identity challenges, including their sexuality; the pain of loss and bereavement; the stress from work, study and family demands; relationship breakdown; as well as anxiety and depression. I am also committed to working with people from all genders and all ethnic backgrounds.
If you've always wanted to try counselling, but felt uncertain about where to start, I'd be very happy to meet with you for a brief 15 minute introductory ZOOM call. I provide a non judgemental and open space for you to work through what is on your mind. Please reach out.

Psychodynamic counselling is a form of therapy through which the therapist works with a client within a safe and protected environment to help them understand the deeper, psychological drivers of their present day behavioural patterns or emotional problems. The client and therapist relationship is paramount to the depth of our work via trust, connection and the client feeling safe.
