I have gained experience working with professionals and students, survivors of different types of abuse and multiculturally.
People begin counselling for a variety of reasons including difficulties within relationships, mental health concerns, feeling overwhelmed, or to regain a sense of direction. Sometimes a life event has taken place and prompted a loss of stability. The common denominator is a desire for change, within the individual or their environment. I provide a warm, confidential and non judgemental space for self reflection and exploration, and support my clients to build on their resilience, resources and confidence.

Do you have emotional or psychological issues that have been holding you back, maybe for longer than you care to remember? Do you wish to take back control of your life? If the answer is 'yes' this can be your future. I offer a non invasive solution based modality in a calm, safe and secure environment. I also offer a more conventional integrative counselling too, having been very fortunate to learn from someone with 25 years experience in the field, of what works and what doesn't. My own work and personal experience have confirmed this and I wish to share my knowledge and success with you. Feel free to call and find out more.

I believe experiencing difficulties is part of being human, something we all encounter at various points during our lifetime. What gets in the way of living life more fully - relationships with friends/family/partner becoming strained; experiencing a traumatic incident; growing up in an environment which didn’t feel nurturing and supportive or which hurt you physically or sexually; someone you loved or cared for has died; living with chronic illness; feeling stressed at work or as parent; reaching a pivotal age and being unsure about the future; needing to make a decision but finding it hard; feeling ‘off’ and not being sure why.

Are you struggling with self harm? Do you feel you have problems relating to depression or low self esteem? My name is Leanne Scott and my main field of specialties are mood and anxiety disorders, trauma and all levels of depression as well as self harm, including (but not exclusive too) cutting, burning, breaking bones, object insertion and partial and or actual removal of limbs or body part. I feel my uniqueness in this field lies not only in my knowledge of these mental health problems and self harming behaviours but that I work with clients to help them recover in ways that are tailor made for them.

Sometimes we simply get stuck or lost and don't know which way to turn. This is true in all areas of life and not one of us is exempt. The feelings can result in anxiety, depression, stress which can impact relationships and work. Sometimes we have no idea whats going on and the simpliest of things can feel overwhelming. When offered a safe space to be really heard and understood, these feelings can begin to feel much smaller and no longer feel insurmountable

Life can be extremely challenging, particularly in these current strange times! Anxiety and depression are more prevalent than ever at the moment. As an integrative counsellor, I draw upon a number of theories and styles to support you in therapy enabling me to work in the best possible way to suit your needs. However, despite these different approaches, it is the relationship which has been found to be the most important factor in facilitating change. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and empathic relationship, which is based upon trust and sensitivity, to enable you to explore concerns from the past, present or future.

If you're struggling to control something in your life or a part of yourself, IFS is a great way to bring about change. It may be a behaviour that you're trying to manage (perhaps around food, gambling, gaming, sex or shopping) or an emotion that threatens to overwhelm you just when you don't want it to (such as anxiety or anger). IFS (Internal Family Systems) therapy works with each and every part of your neurophysiological system, so that you can truly feel calmly in charge of yourself and no longer overwhelmed by impulses and emotions.

I believe our childhood experiences form who we are in our adult relationships, we carry with us the traumas we experience in our lives, these can manifest themselves as psychological and physiological problems, we have to survive so we bury the unpleasant feelings, they are buried alive and want to get out, we suffer, experiencing anxiety, depression, mental and physical illness, the internal and external voices are overwhelming. Counselling is an opportunity to address these feelings, to sit with emotions that may be unfamiliar. I know counselling can help because I have seen many individuals break the cycle.

I am a BACP Accredited Person-Centred Practitioner and Supervisor with more than 20 years experience and 20,000 hours of clinical practice. When we are thinking about accessing counselling therapy, it can be tricky to know how to proceed especially if we have had a poor prior experience or if this is a new venture. Practitioners need to be mindful that each person is an individual snd need to feel valued as such if they are to find - through therapy - what it is they would like to achieve for themselves. It can be difficult to know what we may want from this process but, often having such a want is enough to spur us on.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
