About me

Availability Within A Week Using An Online Booking System.

Face To Face: Leeds City Centre.

Worldwide Online Sessions.

Hi there, I’m Canse and I appreciate you looking on my profile. Does everything just feel like too much? Having relationship problems? Are there traumatic life events that you feel are holding you back? Struggling with anxiety, depression or other mental health issues? Maybe you want to work on self-development? You are not alone. Let’s talk, I would love to help you find a more fulfilling life.

Together we can break things down to feel more manageable, confront your fears and pursue meaningful change. It can help to talk to someone not connected to your personal life and it can be safer to revisit things with a professional. Especially if things have been buried for years, this can feel overwhelming or 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 may be life changing. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Silver Linings Counselling and Psychotherapy is a Worldwide online service. I have 10+ years’ experience working with a range of individuals from 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.

I have observed remarkable transformations in people and I genuinely believe in you too. I have organised mental health awareness events for the last 5 years. I was handpicked from a global magazine Brainz to write articles related to mental health. I was also given the Brainz 500 Global Award for 2021 for my dedication to help others.

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 safe and ethical working. Also, fully Insured with Enhanced DBS.

My therapeutic influence is from an Integrative Approach mostly linked to Humanistic, Relational & Creative ways of working. I am keen to meet your individual needs and being mixed race, I really value diversity. 

Get in touch for a free initial call to help put you at ease and discuss what you would like to get from therapy. You can take control of and book with a simple online booking system on the website or an app.

Cancellations are subject to full payment if less than 24 hours’ notice is given. I will be understanding of special circumstances and may make exceptions.

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.
