Need some headspace?
Headspace is an independent centre of excellence providing counselling, CBT and Psychotherapy by 15 highly trained qualified Members of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy.
Headspace offers short and long term therapy to individuals and couples who feel they need a little extra support. Headspace is located in Leeds City Centre and Ilkley. Our Leeds clinic is based at 18 Park Place and our Ilkley clinic at Back Church Street. All our therapy rooms offer a comfortable, safe, discreet space to talk.
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
All our counsellors are qualified to a high standard. Most of our counsellors are accredited or are working to accreditation. Accredited 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.
