Hi, my name is Leeanne, I work with a large range of issues including anxiety, burn out, grief, trauma, male and female survivors of sexual abuse, circumcision and domestic abuse.
I am a trauma informed therapist with over 20 years experience of working with frontline emergency services and the NHS. I also counsel survivors of sexual violence and domestic abuse for a national charity.
I passionately believe that everyone has something in them to value and nurture and that no one is beyond help. I believe everyone deserves a chance to be happy and to live a rich and peaceful life. I understand it is not always easy asking for help, however, if you are reading this you have already taken the first step.
My approach evolves from a shared exploration and understanding of each client’s issues, I employ a methodology that places you at the centre of our sessions. I will work with you to design a bespoke therapy that is tailored to meet your needs with the aim of achieving your goal of a better, brighter future.

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.
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.

I understand that your journey throughout life may have brought you to a point of feeling overwhelmed, consumed and stuck resulting in not being able to progress as you would like. It may help to find someone who will help you to begin to make sense of these emotions, gain some clarity, think rationally and work towards a peaceful and more optimistic future.
I work with therapeutic modalities that suit your specific emotional needs, ranging from Humanistic, CBT, Gestalt and Systemic therapy. I will help you to develop your self-awareness, find your true self and empower you by gaining an understanding of how and why you react to certain situations, in turn, enabling you to manage your emotions and life more effectively. By understanding why you make certain choices, that may not always be in your best interests, will allow you to discover yourself through therapy. This awareness will enable you to accept and value who you are.
