About me

There can be times in our lives when we can feel overwhelmed by current or past situations, perhaps feeling isolated in our thoughts and feelings, maybe presenting difficult behaviour or receiving it from others, are you repeating patterns of behaviour that result in the same negative consequence.

My aim as a person centred counsellor is to offer you a confidential and non-judgmental space to explore what is going on for you, understanding the meaning of what is happening, finding purpose in the present and for the future.

I feel that by understanding the difficulties that you may face as well as the need to trust someone enough to disclose thoughts and feelings that you have never told anyone is of deep importance for growth to take place.

I believe that the most powerful way for one to learn is through discovery and I hope that by providing a confidential, non-judgemental and trusting space, I can help you gain a deeper understanding of the difficult situations in which you can or may find yourself.

Testimonials:

I am truly grateful to Leigh and her patient and gentle approach to counselling.  she made me feel comfortable from the beginning and I felt like she understood me even when I was struggling to understand myself.  Leigh's kindness and support got me through a difficult time in my life and I now feel better equipped to deal with any future challenges.  Becca (University Student)

Dear Leigh,

Through our sessions you have given me the confidence to move my life in a new, positive direction. Offering guidance, support and encouragement, I found our sessions very worthwhile and although there were many tears there was more laughter. I left each session feeling that I can deal with my anxieties and this has made a real difference in my life. So thank you Leigh, for your positive empathetic approach.  Barbara (Headmistress)

My sessions with Leigh have been so fulfilling and extraordinarily helpful when it came to dealing with past issues that I wasn't able to work through myself.  When I came out as non-binary, she also helped me discover hidden moments pertaining to my gender identity in my past which only served to help me greater understand myself and why I felt certain ways.  Overall my experience with Leigh has been everything I needed and more and I am hugely thankful for her help. Alice
