Nat Le Pla - MBACP
Warm, creative, accepting, therapy for young people, adults and families.
I work with a range of issues including trauma, anxiety, depression, work related stress and bereavement in ways that research has shown are effective. We will collaborate to choose a pathway which suits you and supports you on your journey. Most clients make significant progress in between 6 and 12 sessions.
The Therapy Huddersfield room is easy to reach from the town centre or M62 and has off street parking.
If you would prefer I offer home visits across West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.
Online Skype sessions are available.
Who I work with:
I specialise in supporting Young People from age 10 upwards
I work creatively to build strong, trusting relationships. My wide ranging experience ensures I am able to support or offer signposting in most situations.
I work with Adults experiencing a range of difficulties. Issues such as anxiety, depression and addiction can all be safely addressed during therapy. I work compassionately with adults who have experienced Trauma and Adversity in childhood.
Work Place Stress and Bereavement can leave you feeling less than your true self. We can work to support you through these difficult, emotional times.
I provide bespoke advice and support to families experiencing difficulties related to their children or adolescents.
I find families can feel frustrated and isolated. I work closely with you to understand your position and advise you creating personalised support packages.
Training, qualifications & experience
- As a therapist my aim is to provide therapy that suits you.
I will work closely with you to understand what you would like from therapy.
My primary training is in the Person Centred Approach. I have had further training in CBT, Transactional Analysis and Trauma Informed Practice. I discuss the different benefits of these ways of working so that we can decide on the best way to support you.
I hold a Psychology BSc (Hons), a Certificate in Counselling and a PGDIP in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am currently undertaking research at The University of Salford as I complete my MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a member of the BACP and work with both adults and young people. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am happy to share this with you
An essential part of my work with clients is the relationship I build with them. In order that I am able to be present I am careful to maintain my own well being. I have a daily practice or sadhana involving Yoga and Meditation which helps me maintain a healthy body and mind.

Sessions usually run for 1 hour and cost £40 for face to face sessions and £35 for online Skype / Zoom sessions.
I offer an initial consultation free of charge. This can be as a phone call or an appointment. This gives you, the potential client the opportunity to connect with me and see if you feel comfortable working with me. I can also take the opportunity to listen and understand your situation.
I monitor all my clients using the CORE system. This gives an independent measure of how clients are managing in their lives. Most clients make significant progress in addressing the issues for which they came to therapy with between 6 and 12 sessions.
For clients who prefer I offer a home counselling service. There are many reasons why you may prefer that I visit you in your own home. All I ask is that you can ensure a quiet uninterrupted space for the session. If you would like me to work with your family holistically it may be helpful for me to make at least one home visit.
The cost of the session remains the same £40 per hour. There is however a travelling charge for distances over 5 miles.
Skype or Video Sessions
Counselling sessions over Skype are becoming increasingly popular. The high quality of video calls now means that communication is relatively simple if you have a laptop. Please get in touch if you would like to use Skype or Zoom for your counselling sessions.
