Leanne Jean Marshall - Counsellor & Psychotherapist (MBACP)
You are more than what happens to you. You can be who you wish to be.
My role as a counsellor is to provide a safe and confidential space where you can explore what is bothering you and begin to see things more clearly, or experience life more fully. Increasing your awareness and understanding of your thoughts and feelings, empowers and enables you to make choices and changes in your life.
I recognise your individuality so I work with who you are, rather than your problem - exploring your unique experience and perception of what is troubling you is fundamental to my counselling approach. Therefore whatever has led you to seek counselling, you will not be given unwelcome advice but supported with trust, dignity, respect and empathic understanding.
My flexible and individualistic approach allows me to adapt my counselling style to support you in the exploration of whatever difficulties you are experiencing. I offer a safe, caring and non-judgemental counselling relationship that is led by your specific needs and wants, without limitation.
Getting Started With Counselling
If you feel that I am the right counsellor for you, please email, text or call me to ask any questions you may have or to arrange an initial appointment.
Generally the first session will involve getting to know each other and discussing what you want from counselling. It is also an opportunity for you to 'off load' your troubles for perhaps the first time that you have felt able.
We can then arrange our next appointment or book several sessions over the coming weeks, if you choose to do this a discount is available when paid for in advance.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a First Class Honours Degree in Integrative Humanistic Counselling with training and experience in Person-Centred Counselling, Existentialism and Gestalt Therapy.
I work with adults covering a wide range of counselling issues.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy so you can be assured of my commitment to provide an ethical and regulated practice.
You are in safe hands.
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.
