Leah Clements - Integrative Counsellor, BACP Registered.
Are you feeling anxious or depressed about a particular situation either past or present? Are relationships feeling particularly difficult at the moment and you're struggling to understand them? Or perhaps you're feeling lost in life and things you previously enjoyed or found fulfillment from have lost their meaning.
If these issues resonate with you, then please keep reading to find out how I can help you.
I'm a fully qualified, integrative counsellor and registered member of the BACP and have 5 years post-qualification experience.
I also am an Anxiety UK approved therapist working with people with a range of issues around anxiety and depression.
How can I help?
I offer a safe, confidential space for you to talk, think and explore your thoughts, feelings and concerns. I will be interested to hear about your experiences, your relationships and how you view yourself and the world around you. It can be helpful to explore any recurring patterns in your life and how past experiences may be holding you back. In exploring different aspects of yourself and your life, I'll help you to gain insight and consider new perspectives to help you find a way forward.
What to expect?
We will meet for an initial 50 minute session, so you can meet me, talk about your problem, what you'd like to gain from coming to therapy and decide whether you feel comfortable talking to me. Towards the end of the session, we can decide if we want to work together or you can have some time to think about it and let me know. If we decide to continue to work together, our sessions will take place on the same day, at the same time each week.

I provide in-person sessions in Catford (SE6) and online sessions, using Zoom.
I am located on the Forest Hill side of the area and am easily accessible from surrounding areas of Ladywell, Forest Hill, Honor Oak Park, Crofton Park, Brockley and Lewisham.
I offer both short term and longer term work.

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.
