My name is Leonie and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist working with Think CBT from my consulting rooms in Polstead, Suffolk (Suffolk/Essex border).
As well as being a fully qualified and accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I am also an Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) psychotherapist with extensive experience.
I offer face to face and online therapy for the full range of mental health disorders. I have a particular interest and expertise in working with trauma, OCD and anxiety based disorders. I also enjoy working with people who have complex presentations and may have additional difficulties related to emotional management, addictions, ASD or gender issues. That said, I am passionate about working uniquely with each individual and all they bring rather than working with ‘the disorder’.
As someone who has, in the past experienced and fully recovered from my own mental health issues, I bring this additional perspective to my work. I am aware of the potential strength and personal growth that can result from therapy. I know the importance of being truly understood, listened to and validated and believe that the bedrock of good therapy will be a relationship based on trust, honesty and respect.
I have worked in a variety of settings over my career including IAPT, Secondary Care Mental Health Services, addiction services and with adult survivors of sexual abuse. I now work independently from my therapy clinic in Suffolk.
