Beverley Moslin BA(Hons), DipHE, Registered Member MBACP
Welcome to my profile. Below is a little information about my background and experience. I am trained in a number of approaches but first and foremost I begin with a person centred approach. This means I will listen to you and together we can build a way of working that suits you best.
I am here to hear how things are from your point of view. Counselling offers an opportunity to explore what matters at the heart of your life with an experienced professional in a quiet, confidential setting.
Counselling can give you the opportunity to discover ways to make changes that are meaningful in your life. Taking time to sort through your feelings in a patient, non-judgemental environment can really reduce stress and worry and lead to ‘breakthroughs’ in those areas of life which can feel particularly ‘stuck’ or ‘gloomy’. It's my job to support you to do this.
The world of therapy includes various approaches to life’s problems and some of the specialist training routes I have followed offer ways of working with particular dilemmas, such as relationships. If you are interested in peeling back the layers of a problem and looking in depth at how issues from the past may have affected how you feel in certain situations in your life now, we can.
I also have experience working creatively; sometimes people find words difficult and we will have access to art materials if you would like to work with these. I studied art before I became a counsellor.
Ultimately, I set out to offer a safe and understanding environment where I will support you to take your time to explore and untangle the sources of confusion and pain in your life. We can have as many or as few sessions as you wish- you decide.
I have more than 12 years’ experience working in mental health, education and social care. Previously I have managed a community outreach service, run therapeutic art and play workshops for children experiencing learning difficulties along the autistic and Aspergers spectrum, and managed a complementary therapy centre. I worked as a counsellor at Leeds Metropolitan Student Counselling Service from 2008-12 before setting up my own practice so I have lots of experience working with students and the particular difficulties of student life.
I work from both an independent and informal location in central Headingley (‘Headingley Enterprise and Arts’ or ‘Heart’ as it is known locally) and from practices in the City Centre on Great George Street and Queen Street. The city centre locations are close to Millennium Square (Great George Street) and the train station (Queen Street) and are accessible by most bus routes running through central Leeds.
The Heart Centre in Headingley is a warm and accessible environment which people visit for a number of reasons; they hold everything from film and music nights to meditation groups and art exhibitions. They have a welcoming cafe and off street parking. It is on several regular bus routes and less than 5 minutes from the Arndale Centre or Original Oak stops.
