Hattie Campbell MBACP (Accred)., UKRCP Reg Ind. Counsellor/Psychotherapist
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with extensive experience in helping clients struggling with anxiety, depression, obsessions and compulsions, bereavement and loss, relationship issues, addictions (particularly gambling) and self esteem issues, as well as offering general counselling.
I offer sessions for any issue affecting adults and young people aged 17+, for individuals and couples. I provide both solution-focused/time-limited counselling and longer-term therapy. I am based in central Leeds and Kirton Lindsey, North Lincolnshire and can offer daytime and evening appointments.
Counselling provides a safe and supportive space for you to be yourself, without judgment or criticism. Where you can cut through the noise and confusion of everyday life and others' expectations and begin to find your own answers and own truths.
My approach is relational (i.e. the relationship between myself and my client is a very important part of the counselling work), and integrative, which means I draw on a number of different theoretical models, mainly comprising the existential and person-centred approaches. The existential approach is about assisting you in finding meaning in your life and in working out what's important to you, so you can feel more confident in making choices. The person-centred approach means I work at your pace and only with what you bring, in an understanding and non-judgmental manner. I would work with you as a whole person and not as a problem to be solved.
Training, qualifications & experience
After seven years of working in the music and media industries in London, I re-trained and qualified as a counsellor. I worked in NHS & primary school settings with both adults & children before moving to the North in 2009. I then started providing counselling for a charity for people affected by gambling, both gamblers themselves & concerned others. I have been in private practice since 2010.
