About me

Sometimes life may be challenging, confusing and difficult to work out on your own.  I offer you the space to think and gain perspective on your life that feels right for you, giving opportunity for you to find your voice and to be heard, to tell your story ('journey of you') and work towards gaining the most from your life.

As Rumi says,

                                    "Come again, please, come again,
                                                  whoever you are.
                                        Religious, infidel, heretic or pagan.
                                      Even if you promised a hundred times
                               and a hundred times you broke your promise,
                                                This door is not the door
                                           Of hopelessness and frustration.
                                           This door is open for everybody.
                                                  Come, come as you are.


Hello, My name is Lesley, I am an experienced and professionally accredited qualified Integrative Counsellor / psychotherapist / Supervisor for Counsellors & Psychotherapists and a Personal Life Coach.  I am a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy).  I am committed to working within their ethical principles and I regularly attend courses to enhance my personal development and keep abreast of an ever changing environment.                                                

I have experience in working with clients to explore and overcome depression, emotional upset, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, victims of suicide, drug and alcohol addictions, anxiety, domestic violence, stress, panic attacks, couples, relationship difficulties, children/adults of divorced parents, low self-esteem, anger, guilt, rejection, emptiness, loneliness, loss of identity and terminal illness. Bereavement – can include any of the above as well as, learning to rediscover the ‘self’, manage and understand your loss, readjust one’s life and to reduce the short or long-term effects of unresolved grief, to name but a few.

In order to provide a good service to you, it necessitates for me to understand your individual needs with that you may be facing, as well as considering your circumstances of disability, culture, social inclusion and employment/unemployment from your perspective.  I view every human being as a unique individual, and, I approach you as such, without judgment and with confidentiality, in a warm environment with freedom for you to tell your story as it is.

As an Integrative Therapist I am able to deploy a wide range of theories for addressing many different kinds of psychological distresses.  My aim is to work with you, for you to achieve your goals so you can manage or eliminate symptoms and work towards enjoying a more productive and less stressful life.

The type of therapy is subject to your presenting issues and your desired goals.  The therapy sessions offered can be short-term or long term depending on your needs, for which may vary due to any additional issues that may evolve through your therapy.

I offer therapy in two locations - on the outskirts of Maidstone and in Bromley Kent.

I offer Skype and telephone therapy too.

Please contact me with any questions you may have and/or to make an appointment on telephone number: 07762 628283 or email me at lesley.barrington@yahoo.com

Supervision & training

Effective Counselling is demanding, it can drain your inner resources, consume your energies and raise questions that you need to take somewhere. I acknowledge the importance of  paying attention to  use of theories from humanistic, transpersonal, psychodynamic, transactional analysis, existential and cognitive approaches.  I am interested in transference/counter-transference issues, unconscious and parallel processes, the use of metaphor and symbolism.
