Nancy Edmanson, MBACP
The Therapy Rooms
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), and work using a mainly humanistic counselling approach, helping clients to explore their thoughts and emotions in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space. My training as an integrative counsellor enables me to draw from other therapeutic models also, and adapt my work to the needs of each person.
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 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.
Counselling provides a safe, confidential place where clients are accepted, and can express their own thoughts and feelings without being judged. In this way, people can gradually gain insight into their lives that may have been previously elusive, identify any possible changes they can make, and find a way to move forward.
I can see clients at therapy rooms in four locations; in Leeds and Wakefield City Centres, Rodley and Birstall. Appointments are 50 to 60 minutes long and are offered regularly, usually weekly or fortnightly. I appreciate how difficult it can be to come for counselling, and the first session will be 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. If you are happy for me to ring you, please indicate the best telephone number and times to contact you.
