About me

I Help You Process Learn Evolve For Life Changing Differences With Your Mental Health & Healing.

Worldwide Online & Face To Face: Leeds City – LS3 (Free Onsite Parking).

Hi there, I’m Canse and I appreciate you looking on my profile. Is everything just overwhelming? Are you waking up every day feeling low, numb or empty but confused why? Do you have a chapter you do not read aloud because it is too painful, leaving you surviving instead of thriving? Trying to move forward yet you still feel stuck and really want to level up to achieve your goals? You are not alone. Let’s talk, I would love to help you live a more fulfilling life. Together we can break things down to feel more manageable, confront your fears and pursue meaningful change. Growth and healing are possible when you process emotions with a healthy approach. Although some experiences or life events can be horrendous, at the right time we can learn from everything. To empower us and encourage us to evolve. It can help to talk to someone not connected to your personal life and it can be safer to revisit things with someone trained. Especially if things have been suppressed for years, this can present in your current behaviour or relationships. Counselling & Psychotherapy is a confidential, safe space where you can be your true self with no judgements’ and is life changing.

Training, qualifications & experience

Silver Linings Counselling and Psychotherapy is a Worldwide online and Leeds award winning service. I am the Private Practice Owner & Lead Therapist with 12+ years’ experience working with a range of individuals from various mental health community services, inpatient units and crisis intervention. I also worked in a Therapeutic Community which was DBT focused with ladies who have a personality disorder/DID diagnosis. I have observed remarkable transformations in people and I genuinely believe in you too. The work I do now is more holistic rather than clinical. I organised mental health awareness events for 5 years. I was handpicked from a global magazine Brainz to write articles related to mental health and wellbeing. There are various other global projects I work on as I’m extremely passionate about connecting with my peers but also being open minded for my clients.

I studied BA(Hons) in Psychology specialising in Clinical. Then went on to study my PGDip in Counselling & Psychotherapy. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy which ensures ethical working. Also, fully Insured with an Enhanced DBS. My therapeutic influence is from an Integrative Approach mostly linked to Humanistic, Relational, Psychodynamic & Creative ways of working. My expertise and skill set encourages depth whilst offering genuine empathy. I am keen to meet your individual needs and being mixed race, I really value diversity. There are various traumatic experiences I’ve personally had to deal with in the past that have needed a lot of deep work. I am committed to my own progress and will always try be the best Therapist I can too. 

I also have other availability at my practice and various offers.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
