Effective talking therapies.....



Counselling or CBT are effective ways to address mental and emotional distress in order to make changes and achieve recovery, for a  happier, more fulfilling life. 

I offer a free consultation following initial contact and brief information sharing. I mainly work remotely via  zoom or MS teams, I can offer face to face if appropriate. I know, these first steps can be daunting, but once you make that call, most fears can be alleviated and a  way to  move forward can be discussed.

As well as private practice, I also work part-time for the NHS and BUPA.

I have a wealth of experience with many life issues and specialise in working with clients around  all anxiety problems ,relationship issues, bereavement, chronic illnesses such as diabetes and support for parents and couples experiencing problems with family life issues and child behaviour.

I use philosophy and previous studies to work holistically with clients if required; in areas of self-development, self-esteem and self-worth. I can also work with you on a psychodynamic level using various esoteric tools to aid insightfulness and a deeper meaning to one's life.


 I  serve all surrounding areas in Havering and Essex,( Upminster, Hornchurch, Chadwell, Health, Ilford, Collier Row, Elm Park, Rainham, Brentwood, Harold wood), East London and across the country.

Lesley is amazing, she's been an invaluable support to me throughout my treatment for anxiety and panic disorder, and she continues to be now with all the tools she taught me that I use in my daily life.
I've never met a more lovely, caring and understanding person who genuinely wants the best for you. I had many ups and downs and Lesley never lost faith in me, I'd like to thank you deeply for all of your help and support I don't know where I'd be now if it wasn't for you.
