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.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
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.
I aim to be flexible in working times and can offer daytime and some evening appointments.
