About us

Mandy Nichols and Juliet Thornton are the business owners of Headspace. They are BACP qualified accredited, highly skilled psychotherapists, who identified a need for a clinic in the centre of Leeds which could be trusted to provide good quality therapy by a number of highly trained BACP members. It was from their experience working with clients who expressed the difficulty in finding therapists available at the times convenient to them and not knowing what to look for in terms of their qualifications to assure them of a well skilled practitioner. Headspace makes it easier for clients at a time when they are possibly feeling overwhelmed. We will allocate a therapist at the times convenient to you with the peace of mind knowing they are more than qualified for the task. You will be able to speak to your counsellor before making an appointment to ensure they are what you are looking for.

Training, qualifications & experience

Not all counsellors/psychotherapists are the same. Qualifications range from weekend online courses to Post Graduate Diplomas at University level.

All our counsellors are qualified to a high standard. Our therapists have University qualifications. Most of our counsellors are accredited or are working to accreditation.  Accredited is classed as the gold standard, which means they have satisfied the BACP with case studies and demonstrated their theoretical understanding, with a minimum of 500 hours clinical work. Each of our therapists are committed to continued professional development and regular supervision in line with the recommendations of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
