About me

Hello, I'm Lena and I want to help you feel better.

Phone appointments now available, please call if you need to talk.

I strive to see all new clients within 48 hours so please call - let's start to make you feel more like you.Finding the right counsellor for you

Trying to find the right counsellor for you can be a daunting prospect and seeking help is hard. We all experience challenging periods in life and I would like to help you find your way through. If you are finding it difficult to cope and you are looking for more peace in yourself, I am genuinely looking forward to helping you find the right answers. They are there, sometimes we just need help finding them. I have experience working with a wide variety of clients, in part gained by working with Mind, one of the biggest mental health charities in the UK.

My aim is to help you make positive changes in your life and help you face any difficulties you might be facing, such depression, anxiety, relationship problems or anything else you might be struggling to cope with.

I have considerable experience working with and being with people with Autism and I would really welcome anyone affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder to get in contact. I run sessions for parents of children that have been diagnosed with Autism to help them come to terms with the diagnosis and make plans for the future.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a professional, qualified therapeutic counsellor and a member of the BACP. I adhere to their ethical framework.

I gained my Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling through the CPCAB and have had four years experience in the counselling field.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.
