Leanne Duthie (MSc, PGDip, PGCert, Registered MBACP)
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 behavioural 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 seven 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 currently work for a charity providing counselling for their service users three days a week dealing with a variety of complex issues.
I offer private counselling sessions from home in a very modern and private room in Newport, Shropshire. I can do home visits by request.
