Leah Connelly FdSc MBACP Evening, early AM and online appointments available.
The aim of the work the work that I do is to offer a safe and sensitive space for you to explore your issues, life and feelings. You may find it difficult to share these feelings with family of friends for fear of burdening them, or maybe you feel they may judge you or it might be that they offer advice when what you really want is to be listened too. I offer an environment that is neutral and confidential, counselling is a reflective space to help you make sense of life events and to help you deepen your understanding of yourself and those around you.
I believe we're all unique and we all have different experiences growing up and in our adult lives, there is no 'normal'. By exploring how you feel and your experiences you can begin to understand what your life means to you and this encourages self-acceptance, self-assurance and self-confidence.
Working with a counsellor or psychotherapist gives you the unique opportunity to explore our lives, gain deeper understanding and to make significant sustainable changes.
I also have extensive experience and interest in working with carers, patients and family members in relation to life limiting illness, chronic illness and bereavement counselling gained in my role as a volunteer counsellor at the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.
I also offer early morning appointments and evening appointments subject to availability. I also work online on Skype and Zoom.
