About me

Hello, my name is Lea. Thank you for taking the time to read about how I may be able to help you.

I recognize and respect the unique physical, emotional, social, cultural and spiritual dimensions of each individual.

As an Integrative Therapist, my viewpoint is that a single approach may not be suitable for everyone. Hence, the Integrative approach is a blend of theoretical approaches, appropriate for your unique individual needs.

As humans we are indeed complex, with intricate parts that need special attention and an Integrative approach assists in the healing process, as it acknowledges the person as a whole; mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

I will work with you, in a non-judgmental manner. I will be by your side, going with you at your pace, in a safe and confidential space, empowering you within your own culture and beliefs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, significant loss & change, anger, low self-esteem, addiction, trauma, mental health issues, relationship breakdowns and life-limiting health conditions, to name but a few.

I have over 14 years of experience working with adults and young people within various organizational settings. These include:

The Riverside Group & Christian Action

  • Working with vulnerable, homeless young people and adults in supported housing and in foyers with Riverside. Working with them one to one and in groups.
  • Working at an assessment center and supported housing for young people at Christian Action. Working with them one to one and in groups.
  •  Working with veterans, their families and people with complex PTSD, at the mental health charity MIND. Working with them one to one and delivering psycho educational programmes; CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to groups.
  • Counselling at Water Lane Cottage for Counselling & Psychotherapy. 

My private practice is located in Cheshunt. I offer both short term and long-term counselling to individuals. I can be flexible, with appointments available from Monday to Thursday.

I have a BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) Accredited Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling, from CPPD Counselling School.

I am a registered member of the BACP, which means I work in accordance with the BACP ethical framework.  As a requirement of the BACP, I am committed to continuous training/professional development, regular supervision and follow the supplementary guidance for working online. I have full indemnity insurance and am DBS checked.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
