About

Hello, my name is Leila and I work with individual adults to explore and make sense of their struggles, with a warm, empathic and non judgmental approach. My aim is to put you, the client at the heart of what I do. If you are experiencing distressing emotions or circumstances, I can help by providing a private and safe space, where we can explore your difficulties in a way that can enable positive change. I want to make it clear that I am very much on this journey with you, and I strive to really understand what you are experiencing, so that we can make sense of it together.
Over the last couple of years I have helped many clients with issues of anxiety and depression, particularly around the pandemic and how this has affected them, also the ripple effects of this such as relationship issues including domestic abuse, affecting both men and women and challenges within the family unit and home. My core approach is person centred.
Reaching out for professional support can be a daunting prospect, but my aim is to make you feel safe, heard and understood - where you can speak freely. We are all wired towards growth and healing, but sometimes life's challenges or past issues can stop this process. Please contact me for an initial conversation about what is going on for you right now.
