Melania Leanza MBACP qualified Counsellor
Welcome to you.
Seeking support is not only an act of bravery but also represents the first step in regaining power over your life. Talking about what is troubling you in a safe and non-judgmental space, could help you to explore and develop awareness which can enable you to move forwards in your life. I provide online counselling in Italian and English.
My work is based on the therapeutic relationship, formed together over time. Over my experience I observed that providing a supported and non-judgemental environment, can facilitated the exploration of unspoken and painful thoughts.
In this safe space, is possible to achieve a better understanding of the nature of what is troubling you. For this reason I consider the relationship vital for our journey together.
I am Italian and I’ve been living in the UK since 1996. My background and past carries involves the use of a wide range of alternative medicine and techniques, which lead me to the connection between body and mind -psychosomatic issues -
Throughout my career, I have become increasing interested in the recognition of humans being as a whole – mind, body, and spirit.
Counselling represented a way to complete my knowledge and to satisfy my passion for helping people by supporting them while achieving the best of their potential.
During my time as a integrative counsellor I had also the grate opportunity to learn about uniqueness -we all are -; this opportunity has greatly expanded my understanding and appreciation of diversity. I’ve experienced working with a wide range of cultural backgrounds, ages and issues
Please contact me by text or email to book an initial free consultation of 20 minutes where it will be possible to get to know each other and will help you decide if I am the right person for you.
Looking forward to meeting you.
