Lesley Ross - MBACP, Dip.Couns, Integrative Counsellor
Life can be difficult at times. We can all be faced with challenging and overwhelming difficulties; sometimes when we least expect them. Counselling can be the opportunity you need to work through and understand emotions that may be confusing you; at a pace that suits you, without feeling judged and in complete confidence.
I have nearly 20 years experience working with students (5-16yrs) in schools. I have also volunteered my counselling skills for Thurrock Mind and McMillan Dove for a number of years, gaining a wealth of experience and knowledge.
You may have experienced events or people that have left you troubled or suffering from stress, anxiety, feeling depressed or lonely. Maybe from a separation,divorce or bereavement. You may want to try to make more sense of your life.
Taking the first step can be rather daunting, I understand this; my aim as a fully qualified counsellor is to make you feel comfortable and at ease, to allow you to explore your inner thoughts and feelings. You can bring whatever is on your mind to the session - any anxieties, worries, fears and hopes that you may have.
I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to be able to explore your troubles and concerns. Both long and short term counselling is available.
If you would like an appointment please either call direct or send me an e-mail. I currently rent a room at William Edwards School (RM16 3NJ) after 4pm weekdays and Saturday mornings.
