About me

Hello, my name is Lee.

Working in a peaceful, rural location, I provide a safe, confidential and supportive space to explore the difficulties you have.

What is troubling you? People seek therapy for many reasons. Perhaps you are struggling with a personal relationship, anxiety, or depression is preventing you from thriving? Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by a lack of identity or meaning, or your relationship with food is getting you down/out of control? Having worked in the NHS as a specialist dietitian, I can also offer therapy around food, weight & body-related issues.

Allowing yourself time & space to explore your difficulties, with a professional therapist, can help you to understand and deal with the causes of your unhappiness, distress or feelings of disconnection. Working together, we can bring about the necessary shifts required to help you feel more in tune with who you are and help you to move forward and flourish.

If you would like further information, or would like to arrange an initial meeting, then please phone or e-mail, using the details on this page. Our initial session would be an opportunity for you to see whether you would like to work with me, and for me to ensure I have the necessary qualities to help you with your concerns.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Along with supporting individuals with struggles such as anxiety, relationship problems and trauma experienced in childhood, I also offer specialist food, weight and body related therapy. Whether your difficulty is with your body image, guilt around under or over eating, I have the experience and expertise to support you.

My aim would be to support you to look beyond your current relationship with food and weight, working with you as a whole person. I would endeavour to challenge you to look deeper into your thoughts and feelings; particularly at reoccurring patterns you may or may not be aware of. Through doing so, I would support you with gaining a greater insight into your psychological processes.

Ultimately, I would help you to build a more holistic relationship with food and your body, guide you to a new level of self-acceptance, self-care, and an appreciation for your true self.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
