John Lees, PhD, UKCP reg, BACP reg (Snr Accred)
I have been working as a therapist for 27 years. I see body, soul and spirit as closely interconnected and address most problems from anxiety, relationship problems, minor depression, life crises to complex identity problems, psychosomatic problems, personality disorders and some serious mental health problems.
My practice is bio-psycho-social-spiritual in orientation. I have trained in psychodynamic therapy, integrative therapy and anthroposophic psychotherapy inspired by the work of Rudolf Steiner.
I work with the BACP Code of Ethics
I am an experienced clinical supervisor.
I see clients in London NW1, Forest Row in East Sussex and London W6
- Either phone or email me
- We arrange a brief telephone conversation
- We arrange an initial session to mutually make a decision about whether we think the therapy will work
- We then contract to meet - usually weekly and ongoing but it can also be fortnightly and time limited (say 12 sessions)
I am passionate about therapy and I research into developing new methods to meet the increasing crises of today's world. This research forms part of my work as Associate Professor in Psychotherapy and Counselling at the University of Leeds and have authored (or co-authored) 29 peer-reviewed publications and edited 5 books in the field.
