Leanne Theron, BA (Hons) & Registered MBACP
I am a degree qualified psychotherapist/counsellor who practices using an integrative relational approach. The integrative part allows me to draw from a number of theories, giving me the flexibility to tailor the therapy to your needs and to fully support you during your sessions.
I use various CB (cognitive behavioural) techniques in order to challenge negative thought patterns. A negative mind feeds the anxious mind. I also offer mindfulness in session, which is a wonderful practice to help you become more present. Ruminating, worrying about the past or future can also lead to negative feelings about yourself and increased anxiety.
Working relationally, I am interested in you, your life story and want you to get the best possible outcome from our time together.
I understand that for some people it can be a daunting prospect to consider talking to a professional about themselves and their personal struggles. There is no pressure to talk about anything you don't feel ready to share. I would like to reassure you that you are taking the first step in trying to find clarity and a more content you.
I offer an initial consultation session at a discounted rate of £30. It is your opportunity to share with me what has brought you to therapy, get a feel for how I work and to consider if it is the right choice for you. It is also an opportunity for me to learn more about you and what has brought you to therapy, giving me some idea of how we can work together.
Please don't feel that you cannot talk to someone because your issue is not worthy or there are people out there with bigger issues. If it's something that is bothering you or making you unhappy, then it's very relevant to you and therefore very important to talk to someone who can help you through it.
Please feel free to contact me via email or mobile phone with any questions you may have.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have many years experience working with a wide range of clients, 16 years old and above, male and female within a NHS GP Practice.
Currently I work from my private practice in East Molesey and Twickenham. I am flexible in being able to offer you either individual short term or long term therapy.
I trained at Middlesex University graduating with a BA (Hons) degree in Integrative Relational Counselling.
I am a registered member of the BACP and work within the guidelines outlined by the Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions.
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.
