Frey Case-Leng (Counsellor/Psychotherapist)
How I can help
People seek counselling for many reasons, often feeling stuck, lost or overwhelmed. You may be in crisis, on edge or not feeling like your usual self. Whatever difficulties you are facing, I am pleased you are taking this step and hope to help you in moving forward.
I am a professional counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP) with experience of supporting clients from diverse backgrounds in working through their issues. As your counsellor, I would treat you with respect and honesty, providing a safe and confidential environment for you to reflect on your difficulties. I would not judge you or lead you, but offer my warm understanding and let your individual needs guide our work.
Through exploring your thoughts and feelings together, you would gain a deeper understanding of their meaning to you and of how they impact upon you. This process can enable you to uncover new ways of responding to your difficulties which are aligned with your needs and take you in the direction you want to go.
Through my work at charities and private practice, I have supported people with a wide range of problems and mental health issues, including:
- Relationship issues
- Family issues
- Feeling sad
- Bereavement and loss
- LGBT+ issues
- Experiences of abuse
- HIV, chronic illness and physical disability
I believe that we are all capable of creating fulfilling and enriching lives for ourselves. When we are struggling, counselling can help us connect to our inner resources and offer a valuable opportunity for change and personal growth.
Contact me now and we can have a chat about working together. You can ask any questions you have and we can then schedule a first session if you want to go forward.
If you are interested in working with me, feel free to call or email me so we can have a short chat first. I recognise that you may feel nervous or unsure about what to expect so I am happy to answer questions and offer any clarification before meeting for a first session.
The essence of therapy is in the relationship between the therapist and the client. As such, it is important that you find a therapist who you feel you can really work with. With this in mind, I offer initial sessions at a discounted rate of £25 (further discounts may be available for students and those with financial hardship).
In our first session we can go over what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to get out of it. You will be able to ask me anything you like to help you decide whether you want to go forward with me.
I would then usually recommend that we continue for another five sessions, reflecting as we move along on how the therapy is going so you can decide whether you need to extend.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have experience of working with people of various sexualities and gender identities (LGBT+) and from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds.
It can be difficult to choose a therapist when faced with so many options. For this reason, I charge only £25 for initial sessions and from there you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you.
After this, my fees range between £30 and £60 depending on what you can afford. The cheaper end of the scale is for students and people who are unemployed or minimally employed.
If you are unable to travel easily due to physical restrictions or other limitations, I may be able to visit you at your home or care home. Fees for this can be discussed at the time of booking, but are typically £60.
I hold a strong commitment to working with diversity in the counselling space, aiming to maintain a keen awareness of how the groups and cultures I represent may influence the relationship and therapy.
