Nancy Edmanson, MBACP
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), and work primarily using a humanistic existential counselling approach. This means that I support and encourage people to explore their thoughts and emotions, helping them to gain a better understanding of themselves, and a new perspective on problems that may have bothered them for some time. My training as an integrative counsellor also enables me to draw from a range of therapeutic models, and work in a way that is of the most benefit to each client individually.
I recognise that at times it can be hard to work through personal concerns within our own lives. It may be that we are unable to talk openly with those close to us, or feel we have no one to turn to. We may not really know what the problem is, but just feel something is wrong. This can leave us struggling with anxiety, low mood, stress, relationship problems, or in the aftermath of bereavement, abuse or trauma, or lead us to use harmful coping mechanisms.
I provide a safe, confidential place where clients are respected and accepted, and can express their own thoughts and feelings without being judged. In this way, clients can gradually gain insights into their lives that may have been previously elusive, and find a way to move forward.
I work from therapy rooms in 3 locations: in Wakefield and Leeds city centres, and at Birstall. Appointments are 50 minutes long and are offered regularly, usually weekly or fortnightly, according to individual need and availability. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment. If you are happy for me to ring you back, please indicate the best telephone number and times to contact you.
