Nancy Edmanson, MBACP
The Therapy Rooms
I am an experienced counsellor, & provide a safe, confidential space where clients can explore difficult issues & emotions at their own pace, without being judged. I am passionate about empowering people, & I support & gently encourage clients to gain a better understanding & acceptance of themselves. In time, this enables people to feel happier, calmer & more at ease, to realise thoughts & emotions they may previously have been unaware of, & to be able to make the right, & healthier choices for themselves. To this end, I have counselled clients bringing a range in complexity of issues, & equally those seeking support but being unsure of the reasons for their discomfort,
I have helped clients who were struggling with many different problems, including anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, anger issues & relationship problems. I also have specialist experience of working with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & those struggling with bereavement.
My professional counselling training was in relational theory, which brings together elements from different counselling models, so the therapy can be flexible enough to meet the needs of each person.
Please ring, text or email me if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, & I will get back to you soon if I can't answer straight away. I work at therapy rooms in Wakefield & Leeds city centres as advertised, & also on Rushton Street in Calverley LS28 5NJ.
