Counselling and Training in Richmond, Ladbroke Grove & South West London.
We all have our off days and wouldn't it be great to be able to work to our highest potential all the time? Unfortunately we can not always be superhuman and at times we are our own worst enemy.
My name is Leslie Stanberry, I am an Integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor, and an accredited member of the BACP and registered member of the UKCP, practising in South West London for over 10 years. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, addressing various difficulties (here is an extended list of areas I can help with), with the aim of enabling progress to work towards desired goals. I also specialise in counselling adults and children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). I gained my experience of working with children at The Place2be, in which I was required to undertake a full CRB check, attend training by way of comprehensive workshops and to be mindful of Child protection safeguarding policies and procedures. I worked for 14 months on a voluntary basis as a counsellor for The Place2be, which is a charitable organisation that provides counselling to children in primary schools. As well as ASDs, I also work with other related neurological conditions and disabilities. Additionally, I offer mentoring to families and children who have an ASD or associated difficulties.
I have developed a unique bespoke style of counselling service, honed from personal and academic experiences, in which to help my clients towards having a better understanding of:
And the same can also be applied to perception:
Having a better understanding of how we hear and perceive ourselves and others, will help us develop better relationships with those around us and ultimately ourselves; directly addressing our overall self esteem, to acquire the necessary tools to problem solve, coping strategies, and address ourselves in the here and now.
As an integrative counsellor, I use three main counselling approaches; which when used in conjunction with each other, become a very effective form of counselling:
- Psycho-dynamic: This can help address unresolved childhood issues.
- Existential Phenomenology: This can help a person deal with past and upcoming events,
allowing them to fully engage in the present.
- Person Centred: This can help address a person’s self-autonomy, their own potential and how they value themselves and others.
