About me

Hello, my name is Nyasha. I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist who is based in the Leeds area. I am passionate about empowering people to become the best version of themself that they aspire to be. I aim to do this by providing a safe, contained, non clinical private practice that welcomes individuals to bring their "whole" self. In particular, the different parts of themself that they may otherwise shy away from.

What I can offer you

I offer a supportive therapeutic consulting space with a primary goal of getting to know you....the person or people sat before me. I will get to know you by listening to your story, I will pay attention to your request, I will be empathic and I will be supportive. I will ask to share with you how you impact me, only if you are open to the process. I will encourage you to use our time together in whichever way that best serves your therapeutic journey with the primary focus being on getting your needs met. My approach is very much relational, you and I.

How long will we work for:

As a psychotherapist I can do both long and short term work. The duration of the length of time we schedule to work for is entirely up to you. Therapeutic sessions are usually once weekly but there is flexibility in the frequency of the sessions.

What sort of issues can we work on:

We can work on a wide range of issues such as day to day struggles that maybe around relationships with your self, relationships with family members, relationships at work and relationships with partners. From my training as a mental health nurse I can also work with you on a number of mental health diagnoses. In addition I am also trained to work with issues that may have occurred within one's childhood that maybe now affecting an individual's adult life in the here and now. Sometimes our formative experiences have a huge impact on how we love, we raise our children, on the careers we pick and inevitably on our own mental health.

Where do I work from:

My consulting room is based in the south of Leeds within a residential setting. There is a free designated parking area. There are two bus stops, one that is just outside my consulting room and another that is a 5 minute walk away.

What sort of appointments can I offer :

I can usually offer a range of appointments from early morning to evening appointments all dependant on availability and need.

Initial appointment :

Our first appointment is an opportunity for us to meet and both see if we are best suited to working together. So you have an opportunity to see if my way of working suits your personality or if I can offer you what you need before we agree to work together. The session will usually run for an hour for a reduced fee of £35.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also have a keen interest in working with individuals that somewhat perceive themselves or society perceives them as being in the minority. This may have come about based on their beliefs , thoughts, experiences, ethnic background and sexuality. In addition I also have a huge passion for working with young people in their late teens. I am particularly drawn to their energy and willingness to try something different.


Individual sessions are on a sliding scale of £50 per 50 min session subject to income

Further information

I can offer telephone therapy for those individuals that may find it difficult to attend the sessions in person. I would give you a landline number to call at a specific time depending on our agreement. We would begin by having an initial appointment at a scheduled time for an hour to find out if we are suited to working together. During this time you will have an opportunity to ask me anything you like. I will in turn explain how I work. Payment for telephone therapy is usually requested prior to the session, usually on the day of the scheduled therapy session.
