Nancy Edmanson, MBACP
The Therapy Rooms
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor, & naturally warm & empathic in my approach. I work with individual adult clients, supporting & encouraging them to safely explore & manage difficult thoughts & emotions, to make sense of areas of life where they may feel 'stuck', & to gain a better understanding & acceptance of themselves.
I have helped clients with many different problems, & complex issues, including finding ways to work through anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems (individuals only), & work-related issues. I also have experience of working specifically with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & those struggling with bereavement.
My professional counselling training was in the relational model, which brings together ideas from different counselling theories, so the therapy can be flexible enough to meet the needs of each person. Mainly I use a humanistic theoretical approach, with elements cognitive & Transactional Analysis.
I work from therapy rooms located in Wakefield & Leeds city centres, & in Birstall, WF17 9JY, & can offer daytime, evening & weekend appointments. The counselling sessions are 50 minutes in length, & can be weekly or fortnightly & on either a short or long-term basis, depending on need or preference.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, & I will get back to you soon if I can't answer straight away.
