About me

Hi my name is Leanne and I am a person-centred counsellor that offers a humanistic approach to counselling. This means that I offer a compassionate ear, listening without judgement, allowing you to take the lead in discussions. I will help you to discover your own solutions by supporting and encouraging you throughout the process.

Person-centred therapy can help you to gain more self-confidence, the ability to make decisions and to trust in your own ability. This approach, together with other types of therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy can also be helpful especially for those who suffer from abuse, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, family issues, panic attacks, phobias or other mental health conditions.

Experience

I worked at a local university for two years counselling young adults with a variety of issues.

I have eight years experience working for local charities within a variety of settings including schools and colleges offering counselling sessions and group work to children from aged 5 years through to adults.

I am funded as an independent counsellor by a local charity to provide counselling for their service users four and a half days a week dealing with a variety of complex issues.

Private Clients

I offer private counselling sessions from home in a modern and private room in Streetly, Sutton Coldfield.  Alternatively telephone or online counselling is available also. 

Appointments are available Monday to Friday after 6pm and Saturday mornings (limited availability at present.)

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.
