Jonny Whittingham - Counsellor in Leek
Whatever is troubling, I am here to listen to you.
My dedicated counselling space is a safe, warm and welcoming place, and is situated in the town of Leek.
I offer an integrative counselling service, with a specific focus on empathic listening and I work in a non-judgemental manner, offering unconditional positive regard to all of my clients.
Primarily, I work with anxiety and depression issues, grief, self esteem/self-worth, concerns around confidence, dream interpretation, and addressing adoption issues. I can advise on mindfulness and a variety of meditation techniques and I also conduct guided visualisations. I have a keen interest in working with clients who are experiencing deep philosophical and spiritual concerns or crisis and I also have a deepening interest in working from cross-cultural perspectives.
In my designated counselling room, your issues can be securely explored - in a safe, uninterrupted and confidential way. However, I can also be contacted to discuss other session environments, such as counselling in nature and eco based therapy in the outdoors. I have a dedicated therapeutic outdoor space by the River Dove, near the village of Longnor. If you would feel happier discussing your issues with nature, then eco-therapy may be your preferred option.
I offer a negotiable rate for people who are students, low waged or unemployed.
I am fully DBS checked and work with a wide range of age groups from 15 years and upward. Please contact me for further details.
