Shannon Kelly, BA (Hons), PG Cert, PG Dip, MBACP
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. My name is Shannon, I am a qualified, accredited psychotherapist from Leeds.
Finding the right counsellor for you can feel overwhelming. I know from personal experience how daunting this can be, which is why I offer a free initial conversation so that you can make an informed choice as to whether you would like to start working together. I work both short and long term in a relational and person-centred way. I have the belief that we are all unique, and therapy is not one size fits all, this means I use range of skills / techniques from different approaches to ensure we are working together in a way that suits you personally. I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space to allow you feel safe enough to explore your thoughts and feelings, to feel heard and listened to.
I have years of experience in supporting others, including telephone support for those in crisis, working alongside parents and families, providing me with an insight into their struggles and family life. I have also provided face to face therapy to many individuals with different concerns.
You may know exactly why you want to start counselling, or you may be looking for someone who can support you in a safe and non-judgmental space to help you understand what is going on for you right now. You may also want to explore or address your past to help you gain answers.
Whether you’re feeling stuck, alone, unsure of where to turn, facing work-related stress, relationship or family difficulties, low confidence/self-esteem. I am here to support you.
Please get in touch to arrange your free introductory call so that I can answer any questions or concerns you may have. Call / text on 07511780451 or email me here
If I am not able answer your call, please leave me a message so that I can get back to you as soon as possible.

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.
