Leanne Hesketh at trust-talks counselling
Trust talks counselling, is a person centred counselling service I created to offer a professional, warm, welcoming and safe space for anyone to attend and explore personal issues.
I recognise that life doesn't always go to plan and people within our circle of family and friends aren't always ready, willing or able to listen to us. Inturn, I felt very strongly that every story mattered and deserved to, not only to be listened to but heard, really heard because......
When we're able explore our problems,we can find a way to understand them and possibly lessen the pain were in.
I work in a very relaxed,professional manner, Using a non-directive and non- judgemental approach. You're my priority and I hope to work with you sensitively, respectfully and effectively; empowering you to overcome any obstacles in your life.
This work, through the provision of a safe,private and confidential relationship; will eventually enable you to find the resources you need to achieve a new positive outlook on life.
Trust-talks, it's where every story matters.

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.
