Leeza Moore MA Children & Young People Therapist and Supervisor MBACP (Accred)
I am a warm, caring, compassionate and experienced therapist for children and young people who struggle with everyday anxieties, having extensive experience of successful outcomes with young people who may feel marginalised and isolated in their lives, through peer pressure and relationships with others.
For Children and Young People - counselling differs from that offered to counselling adults. A child's age specific difficulties and their development will determine the method I use to support children in expressing their thoughts, feelings and physical emotions. Working together ensures a positive outcome while covering issues such as Trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, self harm, bullying and low self-esteem. I have a warm and welcoming approach working creatively using music, play and art to support children and young people to explore and help to resolve problems through talk therapy and therapeutic play. The preferred approach is always agreed with the child or young person.
I have extensive knowledge and experience in using a variety of therapeutic approaches, such as CBT, Psychodynamic and Humanistic which is tailored to the individuals' needs for all age groups. My experience of working with adults extends into areas of alcohol dependency, bereavement, emotional, mental and physical abuse, relational issues, anxiety and depression.
The aim of counselling for children and young people is to help them cope better with their thoughts and feelings in a non-judgemental and safe environment.

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.
