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.
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.
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.)

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
