About me

My name is Leanne and I work as an integrative counsellor, which means that I am trained in different counselling models.

Every person is unique, so it is important that I can establish a way of working that is suitable for each individual.

Counselling is a collaborative process, so it is important that we find a way of moving forward which feels right for you.

Whatever you’re struggling with, counselling is here to help you make sense of what you're going through, to support you and help bring you to a fresh and brighter outlook on life.

​Some of the issues I have experience dealing with are:



Panic Attacks


Relationship issues

Eating Disorders

Gender Dysphoria




Personality Disorders

What happens in the first session?

Sessions last 50 minutes​

Our first session together is an assessment, in order for you and I to ensure we feel comfortable together and to determine what your needs are and what type of support you require.

You can expect to enter a safe and inviting environment, where you can relax and have the space and time to express your concerns.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
