Understanding how and why we connect to others is vital. Whether you are overwhelmed by the demands of others or feeling lonely and isolated, increasing digitalisation, polarisation in politics and hectic schedules seem to conspire to make our lives fragmented and disjointed. At The Counselling Lab, we strive to prioritise healthy relationships, families, and social connections, in whatever form they take for you, and be mindful of those in our work with clients.
At the beginning of 2018, Leigh Brannon, Relate trained counsellor/psychotherapist, supervisor and tutor established The Counselling Lab. This was in response to recognising that there is a need for reliable, trustworthy and flexible counselling specialising in relational thinking. Whether you are an individual, a couple, a family or a young person, counselling which is informed by how we fit into our world will be useful in supporting you.
Life throws us unexpected challenges. Sometimes, a life transition has unexpected consequences, at others, change is thrust upon us when we are unprepared. Perhaps we find ourselves stuck, and unable to move forward; to make the change we badly need. The Counselling Lab is dedicated to supporting you through transitions, at your pace, and mindful of those around you.

Relationship difficulties, affairs, relational trauma, coercive control, bereavement, change, causes of anxiety and depression, post substance misuse emotional difficulties, estrangement and loss, step-families, bullying, work place difficulties, indecision, loneliness, indecision, Aspergers, and many others.

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.
