Hi my name is Lee Gledhill I am a Relate trained counsellor working in private practice and also as a School Counsellor. I qualified in 2011 and have been working with individuals, couples, children and young people for 10 years now.
I am fundamentally a systemic counsellor but include many other types of counselling in my practice, psychodynamic, solution focussed, CBT, mindfulness and Compassion focussed to name but a few. I am bound by the code of ethics and practice of COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy) and the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
I am dedicated and passionate about the benefits of counselling at times of difficulty and distress. I am known for my compassionate and caring style of counselling. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where we can explore the issues that you bring. Together we can clarify new ways of going forward which help you feel more in control of your life and more hopeful about your future.
Coming from a nursing background, I spent my working life in hospital, community, GP Practice and substance misuse, gaining knowledge, experience and a good understanding of many of life’s highs and lows. Post retirement I trained and joined the Non-Religious Pastoral Support Network, accredited by Humanists UK whose aim is to support people, regardless of belief, at some of the most challenging times in their lives. One of the things experience has taught me, is the importance of listening without prejudice, also that there’s usually a way through most situations, with the right help and support. If you would like talk to someone, who will listen with care and compassion, I am here for you. Sometimes, just being able to talk things through with someone else can help us find a way forward when life throws a curveball. And if I’m not the right person for you, I will do my best to direct you to someone better able to help.
