Who am I?

Call In Complete Confidence

Who am I?

My name is Leslie and my counselling practice is based in a comfortable, private room in The Bridge, a community building in Andover town centre, with car parking close by.   I see Clients from the local area including: Andover, Salisbury, Winchester, Tidworth, Basingstoke, Ludgershall, Newbury, and from further afield if clients are willing to travel.

I am an Accredited Professional Registrant member of the National Counselling Society, and a member of The Association of Christian Counsellors accredited as a Counselling Practitioner. I abide by their Code of Ethics, and am on their Voluntary Register. I have professional insurance and keep up to date with Continual Professional Development. As a Professional Counsellor of 20 years you can expect to be treated with respect and in confidence.

Having been married for over 40 years, with 3 married children and as grandmother to 7 grandchildren I have a wealth of experience from which I can draw. As a volunteer caseworker with SSAFA (a major armed forces charity), and a volunteer with Care Confidential (a national charity) where I focused specifically on post abortion, post miscarriage and baby loss I have gained a varied experience that broadens my work as a Counsellor. I have also worked as a volunteer Counsellor for Soul Survivor, an annual summer residential event for approximately 8000 young people. I hold a certificate in Christian Sex Therapy with the Institute of Christian Sexual Wholeness. 

I practise using a variety of approaches often involving CBT techniques, art therapy,  Transactional Analysis, counselling from a Christian perspective but whichever approach is used I am always Person Centred and tailor the counselling to fit the individual's needs.

I counsel individuals or couples.  However I do not provide telephone or online counselling, although in certain circumstances I can counsel via Skype.

NHS Choices :
"a good counsellor will focus on you and listen without judging or criticising you"
