Leicester Counselling, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision

As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist (BACP Registered and Senior Accredited), I offer both brief focused and longer-term private counselling and psychotherapy from my Leicester practice (LE1). Services include individual psychotherapyrelationship, marriage, couple+ or group counselling (same-sex, and different-sex), online counsellingEmployee Assistance Programmescounselling for traineesstudent counselling servicelow-cost counsellinggender, sexual and relationship diversity (GSRD/LGBT+) counselling, and therapy room for hire. I offer clinical supervision to trainee, newly qualified and experienced counsellors, and professional support for allied health professionals. I provide ad hoc ‘Ethics Surgeries’ to counsellors, psychotherapists and allied health professionals who need an experienced ear to guide the development of defensible ethical decision making. I also provide ad hoc consultancy for counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals working with gender, sexually and relationship diverse GSRD/(LGBT+) clients. My ground floor consulting room (accessibility info: door widths 75 and 69 cm) is in a discreet location of Leicester city centre and is easily accessible by public transport and there is on-street parking nearby. 

Many of us, for different reasons, find parts of our lives very difficult; sometimes overwhelming, and it takes immense courage to work at understanding the things that are unsettling us. Past experiences can mould the people we become and by thinking together we can help discover why patterns of behaviour exist and encourage new patterns for the future; the hope for lasting change.

My belief in an individual’s ability to explore and evolve their understanding of themselves and their situation underpins my work. I ‘walk with’ those in distress and assist in helping manage and explore difficulties in an appropriately contained and supportive, yet challenging environment.

Developing a relationship of shared trust and respect is therefore essential for effective counselling, so it is important that there is a comfortable connection between client and counsellor. I provide a confidential place, free from judgement, for you to talk with someone about your concerns. I value each person’s individuality and honour difference, diversity and inclusive practice within my work.
