Nancy Edmanson, MBACP
The Therapy Rooms
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), and work using a mainly person-centred, humanistic counselling approach, helping clients to freely explore their thoughts and emotions in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space. I trained as an integrative counsellor, which enables me to draw from other more diverse therapeutic models during my practice as well, & I commonly also use elements of TA & REBT.
If you are struggling to work through personal concerns within your own life, counselling provides a place where you can process your own thoughts and feelings without being judged. It could be that you are coping with anxiety, low mood, stress, relationship problems, or in the aftermath of bereavement, abuse or trauma. You may not really know what the problem is, but just feel that something is wrong. During counselling, people can gradually gain insights into their lives that may have been previously elusive, identify any possible changes they can make, and find ways to move forward.
I work from therapy rooms conveniently located in central Leeds & Wakefield, & at Birstall, & appointments are 55 minutes in length. The first session is charged at a lower rate than all subsequent ones, & will be an opportunity for us to meet and explore your needs and hopes for the process, and get a sense of how it feels for us to work together. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment.
