Leon has a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and is registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
As an integrative therapist, Leon’s approach is to progress at the clients own pace without being too ‘pushy’ or expecting the client to talk about issues they might not yet feel ready for. Leon takes a holistic approach to help his clients explore problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviours in an environment where they feel safe and fully supported.
Leon believes that we are ultimately a product of our own past experiences and background, and our current feelings, thoughts and behaviours are often directly related to learned behaviour or early stages of self development.
Leon uses a range of techniques and modalities including Psychodynamic and CBT techniques, and adapts the therapy to suit the needs of every client so they feel most comfortable.
Leon believes the client is the expert in their own life and Leon will help to understand and facilitate measures to challenge unwanted behaviour patterns, thoughts or emotions and explore new possibilities.
Leon grew up in the local area and has spent considerable time travelling and working in all kinds of jobs before training to be a counsellor. He believes that his own diverse experiences and background position him well to understand the various issues and experiences that are often brought to therapy.
Please call Leon for an initial free phone consultation without obligation. Leon will answer any questions or concerns you may have and give you an idea of what to expect from counselling.
