Leanne Moreton - Registered MBACP
You have just made the first important step for change in your life. You are about to ask for help. Perhaps you are feeling low, anxious or even just stressed. Admitting the need for a counsellor can seem daunting. However, there are times when it helps to have someone outside our immediate circle to talk to and make sense of thoughts, feelings and/or circumstances that may be causing distress.
What I can offer
I offer a supportive, friendly, non-judgemental and confidential space where we can think about and explore together what's troubling you. It might be something you want to change, understand, or learn to accept. Or perhaps you're feeling a more general sense of lacking vitality and meaning in life.
I believe that counselling is not about sitting you down and telling you what to do. It is about listening to you without judgement, enabling you to explore your thoughts and feelings and gain valuable new perspectives about yourself and your situation. It is about helping you to resolve your difficulties yourself, find new ways of coping or give you a greater sense of control and choice in your life.
My Counselling Approach
I have an integrative counselling approach, this enables me to draw upon a range of approaches and techniques, including person centred, psychodynamic and Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I tailor therapy to meet individual client's needs and I use these approaches to help my clients explore their issues.
Through my own personal experience I understand that it can be difficult to start therapy and to choose a Counsellor. I am aware that it can feel uncomfortable and challenging, therefore I aim to support you on your journey by listening to you, by having empathy and understanding, by creating a warm, trusting relationship and by sometimes challenging you when appropriate. We can work together to help you achieve your goals, gain confidence and move forward.
I offer a FREE 30 minute introductory session to explore what you want from counselling and how we might work together. In the first consultation we can discuss any questions you might have, explore what brings you to counselling and decide if it feels right for you.
