I am an experienced counsellor who works with a range of emotional difficulties offering both short and longer term counselling. My counselling practice is based a short walk from Petts Wood station. I am offering video counselling support and face to face counselling support subject to current government guidelines for safe practice.
I have an ongoing awareness of the relevance of the past associated with Psychodynamic theory but my counselling style is more in line with the Person Centred philosophy which places emphasis on the strength of the therapeutic relationship. I have a conversational style which I feel develops a more natural connection. As well as counselling, I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and interventions using Transactional Analysis. My training in different approaches, allows me to adapt my way of working to suit your individual needs.
It is important to find the right counsellor where you feel comfortable and safe to share your concerns. For more information about me and the way I work please visit www.lesleywilkescounseling.co.uk. Thank you.
