Nancy Edmanson, MBACP
The Therapy Rooms
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor, & work with individual adult clients. I can help you find ways to work through a variety of problems & complex issues, including anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem and relationship problems (individual clients only).
I also have experience of working specifically with clients who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse & their families, & those struggling with bereavement.
I will support & encourage you to safely explore & manage difficult thoughts & emotions, to make sense of areas of life where you may feel 'stuck', & to gain a better understanding & acceptance of yourself.
My professional training was in the relational model which brings together ideas from different counselling theories. In practise I use a mainly humanistic method, which helps clients examine life issues & events to find a fresh focus or meaning about them, bringing a new understanding & relief from distress. I also include elements of theories such as cognitive & Transactional Analysis which provides help to manage difficult emotions & situations.
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 individual need.
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.
