My therapy style is integrative - drawing on evidence based training in mindfulness and self compassion, relationship (attachment) theory, inner child therapy, feminist principles and somatic trauma informed care.
Safe and compassionate therapy for women and girls 16 and over. As women, we experience unique challenges related to gender, like - discrimination, sexual assault, abuse, domestic violence and hormonal life transitions. And these life experiences can have a significant impact on your mental health and wellbeing. I believe, given the right environment and opportunities, we can all live a rich and meaningful life. It takes strength and courage to reach out for help, so I promise to meet you where you are - gently and mindfully.

Verified
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.
