Hello, my name is Lesley, I am an experienced and a professionally qualified Integrative Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor, Personal Life Coach and Safeguarding Officer. I am a member of NCS and BACP

I have experience in working with clients to explore and overcome depression, emotional upset, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, victims of suicide, drug and alcohol addictions, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, domestic violence, stress, panic attacks, couples, relationship difficulties, children/adults of divorced parents, low self-esteem, anger, guilt, rejection, emptiness, loneliness, loss of identity and terminal illness. Bereavement – can include any of the above as well as, learning to rediscover the ‘self’, manage and understand your loss, readjust one’s life and to reduce the short or long-term effects of unresolved grief, to name but a few.
In order to provide a good service to you, it necessitates for me to understand your individual needs with that you may be facing, as well as considering your circumstances of disability, culture, social inclusion and employment/unemployment from your perspective. I view every human being as a unique individual, and, I approach you as such, without judgment and with confidentiality, in a warm environment with freedom for you to tell your story as it is.
As an Integrative Therapist I am able to deploy a wide range of theories for addressing many different kinds of psychological distresses. My aim is to work with you, for you to achieve your goals so you can manage or eliminate symptoms and work towards enjoying a more productive and less stressful life.
The type of therapy is subject to your presenting issues and your desired goals. The therapy sessions offered can be short-term or long term depending on your needs which may vary due to any additional issues that may evolve through your therapy.
I offer therapy in two locations - on the outskirts of Maidstone and in Bromley Kent.
Please contact me with any questions you may have and/or to make an appointment on telephone number: 07762 628283
