Peri O'Connor MBCAP
Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed, stuck or really down? Are you struggling to work out what is bothering you? Or are you not sure where to start? Whatever your reasons I can help.
I am warm, calm and compassionate. Clients have told me I am easy to trust and feel comfortable to share things they have never told people before.
I am passionate about the work I do and I can offer you a confidential, safe place where you will be accepted as you are, to explore the issues you are facing, and find a way forward. Drawing from my experience we can find out what works best for you. I believe everyone has the ability to change and reach their full potential. You are the expert in your own life and we can work together at your pace, to find a way forward.
How I work
I have experience in working with people with a whole range of issues such as anxiety, low mood, worry, depression, confidence and self-esteem issues, bullying, panic, grief, loss, (including loss through a health diagnosis) trauma, parenting issues, marital issues, isolation and self-sabotage.
My training and experience has taught me that relationships are significant. This includes challenges you may be facing in your relationships as a parent, child, partner, friend, at work or at home, but also the way you and I may work together.
I work one to one with adults aged 18 and over, offering short and long term therapy at The Orchard Therapy Centre in Horsforth, North Leeds, a comfortable, calm setting where you will receive a warm welcome in a safe place.
If you would like to meet for an initial session please call, text or email me. We can discuss any questions, fears or concerns you may have.
