Reach out if you need support getting symptoms of anxiety & depression under control, tackling childhood trauma , trauma from intimate partner abuse, sexual assault or workplace bullying. I use both cognitive behavioural & sensorimotor art therapies (Guided Drawing & Clay field therapy) to rapidly improve your situation. Fundamental to my work is helping you to be more certain in yourself, better connected to yourself and others and confident in your decision making.

Has traditional ‘talk therapy’ not worked for you? You have an understanding of what your anxiety triggers are just no way of changing how you feel. Maybe you are sick and frustrated with sleeping patterns, worry, panic coming out of nowhere, exhaustion, reduced productivity at work, grumpiness, irritability, emotional outbursts, crying, anger, feelings of inadequacy and failure. You should have to put up with this! There are so many options available to you, so much so I wrote a book on it!

As a counsellor I have predominantly dealt with high risk, suicidal and self harm clients. However whilst in the midst of such difficult work I also possess a strength in working with anxiety, stress, communication, self-esteem and a variety of mental health issues. I aim to build an authentic therapeutic relationship in order to decipher what the goals, aspirations and motivations are of a client in order to understand what the path forward looks like. I make sure I take the time to listen, understand and truly comprehend what a client needs and how they want to achieve it within a solution focused mindset

Do you wonder whether your goals and aspirations have been influenced by society? Perhaps if you were truly living for YOU, your goals would look quite different. Anxiety can dominate our lives until we start uncovering what we truly want out of life. Radically accepting yourself - and understanding your true desires and values - can set you on a more meaningful and fulfilling path. Looking at our issues in a Holistic way allows us to understand ourselves better, which fosters self-compassion.

I'm Leanne from Blue Hearts Counselling. I became a CounselIor to help mums and families with birth trauma healing. I suffered a 4th degree tear and had many operations (ileostomy, reversal) and I know of the far reaching implications (including relationships, finances, mental health, esteem, loss of identity, physical health and even life long injuries and complications) and that's what I help with. I also know how this impacted my own children (eg. sleep issues, separation anxiety) so I also offer a kid friendly space to help build up their confidence and reduce anxiety.

Lee believes that we are all born wired for safe connection and belonging, but sometimes life events and trauma disrupt this natural flow.
A relationship that thrives and gives you fulfilment will bring the kind of lasting happiness that enables you and your partner to grow and create deeper bonds. When an important relationship becomes strained or distressed, the pain you feel can challenge you to the core. I work with you in order to reveal the dynamics of your relationship - the patterns that you have built to protect the wounds that you have suffered. Together we will explore and uncover the hidden beliefs and unconscious drivers that are the triggers of your difficulties in relating to yourself or partner. We long to become present to ourselves, and connected.
