About me

My name is Nancy Leaver, and I am a very experienced accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Mindfulness Teacher. I take an interested humanistic approach to therapy, that everyone deserves unconditional positive regard, empathy and compassion and to learn how to become compassionate towards themselves. The therapy space will be safe, where you will be allowed to explore your life, and dreams creatively. I believe that everyone has the resources and resilience to move towards change. I live in Manchester and currently studying for a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Manchester University, and just passed my first year.

I offer private face to face CBT and Humanistic Psychotherapy therapy sessions for adults (18+) who are experiencing distress. This could fall under depression, bereavement, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, specific phobias, social phobia and health anxiety, relationship breakdown even.I also offer taster sessions in mindfulness, or the equivalent of an 8 week course for individuals or sets of 3 or 4 people. I further offer couples counselling as an alternative approach. I can also also offer Skype sessions as an alternative approach, and would be willing to do home visits (if necessary).

I have had over ten years experience of working in the NHS in primary care services, and also had experience in child and adolescent acute services. I have run drop-in MBCT groups at MIND, and have co-facilitated MBCT groups in an NHS setting working alongside Clinical Psychologists and other CBT Therapists. I have also just completed teaching an MBSR group for Healthcare Professionals and Therapists, and undertaken my own emotional development through meditation

I sincerely believe that people have the courageousness to move forward in a way that is meaningful to them in therapy. I value connection, and that all people should be treated with the utmost respect and as a human being with human rights in therapy space.
