About

Hello, I'm Leah and thank you for taking time to read my profile. From past experience I know it can be hard reaching out for help, but whether you are experiencing a crisis, traumatic event, or a recurring difficulty, it can be helpful to get support rather than struggling on your own. I am a qualified person-centred counsellor, offering both short and long term counselling to adults, young adults, teenagers and children. I work with clients in an integrative way, this may include looking at your past and present situations. Working together at your own pace, we can find ways to further understand yourself and your potential.
I work with all forms of difference sensitively in the room, and specialise in working with clients who are neurodivergent. Whatever your needs are, I offer a relaxed, non-judgemental, confidential space for you to explore whatever you would like to get support with. I believe that each person is unique and focus my work to fit with your individual needs.
In addition to my private practice, I provide counselling for a local charity organisation. My core therapy is predominately Person-Centred, however, i also draw on additional theories such as (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Sand tray, Creative Therapy and Mindfulness). I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework.
