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.
I am also a registrant of the B.A.C.P (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy)
registrant number: 374049 and carry full indemnity insurance to ensure I am a fully legal and ethical practitioner providing a professionally safe service.
