About Lesley Haswell Therapy
I am an experienced qualified psychotherapist. I work mainly with individuals both long and short term. My clients come from many walks of life and many backgrounds, and I love the richness of the variety. Having said that, we all share so much in what it is to be human and share so many of the same struggles, hopes and dreams. I don’t change my clients, though many do choose to change themselves as a result of our work, but seek to help them live with something differently.
I work with existential therapy and CBT, both of which focus on how we are living now.
My clients come with many issues. Anxiety, depression, relationships, fertility, addiction and phobias are frequent. Some have had accidents at work; are in violent domestic relationships or have been abused as a child or as an adult. Some have been bereaved or are struggling with the end of a key relationship. Some are concerned about the choices they are making from work to relationships. Some find living with an alcoholic partner or an ill child challenging. Some are puzzled why they are angry at work or find it difficult to sleep.
It can be tough as well as wonderful, to be human, and I hope to work with my clients in a human way.
My training, work experience and any achievement
I have many years of counselling and psychotherapy experience and professionally recognised training based upon Integrative, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Existential traditions. I also brings extensive experience from careers in the business, social and voluntary sectors.
I am registered with the UKCP, and is a member of the BACP and of the BABCP.
Clients come because they value the opportunity to talk in a confidential, comfortable and safe environment here in Covent Garden. I know this may be your first experience of therapy and you may not know what to expect and that can be quite scary. I aim help you feel at ease so you can explore what has been troubling you.
The experience of talking with a therapist differs from talking to family, friends or loved ones; with a London counsellor or psychotherapist you can say exactly what you feel without fear of hurting or upsetting those you care about. Experience shows that through the expression of sometimes difficult thoughts and feelings a situation can be better understood.
I’m an experienced therapist who aims to listen actively and practice with honesty and compassion. My purpose is not to judge: rather, to seek to clarify and illuminate your concerns by engaging in a frank and questioning dialogue. An analytic yet caring relationship is what our clients find most helpful.
Finally, I aim to for you and with you. You choose whether to introduce a life experience maybe never before discussed with anyone. You choose whether to try any particular technique or approach. Together we explore what you find helpful and therapeutic; we recognize that only when you truly feel our relationship is respectful, confidential and understanding will you achieve what you hope for in therapy.
I offer short term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy. Appointments are available Monday to Friday, mornings, afternoons and evenings.
