Hi I’m Lesley
I am a fully qualified experienced integrative counsellor with over a decade of experience working with adults and children 16+.
I believe that the counselling relationship between clients and myself is key and that when a person feels safe, valued and heard without judgement they can trust in the relationship and be open to exploring thoughts feelings and behaviours or any issues past or current that may be effecting their day to day life.
I offer one to one counselling in a space where we can talk without interruption and without being overheard. My aim is to help you to move to a place where you feel comfortable with yourself and able to move forward autonomously.
The initial session will be where you can discuss your needs and I can answer any questions you may have round the process.
There will be a nominal cost for the initial session of £20:00 and no pressure if you decide this is not the time for you.

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.
