Leslie Ann Milne
*I am now back working face to face with clients, remote therapy is still ongoing for those clients who wish to remain at home*
I am a fully qualified counsellor and a member of the BACP. I offer a bespoke counselling service, face to face in a secure, discreet and safe environment. The service is tailor-made to meet the individuals needs. Counselling is used as a talking therapy and/or solution focused. I trained as an integrative counsellor which means I can offer a variety of therapeutic approaches and methods to meet my clients needs.
Looking for a counsellor can seem daunting especially if you are feeling a whole range of emotions from 'having a bad day' to suicidal thoughts, from anxiety to depression or relationship issues. However you have taken the first step by looking through the Counselling Directory and realising you would like support.
My approach is collaborative, confidential and empathetic. You will find me to be supportive, non-judgemental and comfortable to be with.
By working collaboratively I aim to assist you in gaining a new perspective and a greater sense of self-awarenes. Whilst this change takes place it becomes possible to explore options which may then enable you to make the changes you want to move forward.
Please check my website for more details.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
