Leslie Ann Milne Dip. Counselling MBACP (Registered)
Labyrinth Business Centre
43-47 Middle Highgate
I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP. I offer a bespoke counselling service, face to face in a secure, discreet and safe environment. The service is tailor-made to meet the individuals needs. Counselling is used as a talking therapy and/or solution focused. I trained as an integrative counsellor which means I can offer a variety of therapeutic approaches and methods to meet my clients needs.
Looking for a counsellor can seem daunting especially if you are feeling a whole range of emotions from 'having a bad day' to suicidal thoughts, from anxiety to depression or relationship issues. However you have taken the first step by looking through the Counselling Directory and realising you would like support.
My approach is collaborative, confidential and empathetic. You will find me to be supportive, non-judgemental and comfortable to be with.
By working collaboratively I aim to assist you in gaining a new perspective and a greater sense of self-awarenes. Whlist this change takes place it becomes possible to explore options which may then enable you to make the changes you want to move forward.
Please check my website for more details.
