Mia Lake MBACP. Tele/video session. Individual/couples Leeds/UK
Hello and welcome to MindMove Counselling.
Due to Coronavirus & social distancing my work with you is being carried out via telephone and video. I am skilful in working this way having previously done so for a number of years.
I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and work with adult men, women & couples.
It's a troubling and difficult time for all at present, which has meant a great deal of change to our lifestyles. You may be feeling worried, anxious, lonely and scared and I hope to support you and offer you a safe space to talk.
There can be many reasons for seeking professional counselling - you may feel stuck, lost and unable to see how you can move forward in your life. Having a safe space with the right therapist, can help you and I am here to support you with that 'move'.
I am here to work with you to help you discover some of the underlying problems behind the difficulties you are experiencing.
HOW COUNSELLING CAN HELP...
For many reasons it can be difficult to speak with family, friends or others you might normally talk to or confide in. People you know may offer advice or pass judgment; our counselling sessions will be free of judgement & strictly confidential.
Being able to speak, without judgement, may provide you with a freedom you are unlikely to have in other relationships. In our sessions together, I support you, I listen to you and we work together to help you make the changes you wish to see.
I will provide time and space for you, in counselling, when you need to be listened to.
When you make contact we can arrange a free 10 minute telephone consultation, where you can ask any questions you have.
My fee's are competitive and can be discussed at point of contact.

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.
