"Lesley has been my Consultant and mentor for many years. She is very knowledgeable, relatable, which probably explains why she has such a successful practice. She has gently corrected any of my errors and suggested a different more fruitful way. I continue to value Lesley's support more than words can say on my journey as an EMDR Consultant."

"I found Lesley after a false start with another EMDR counsellor who I didn't connect with. Lesley immediate made me feel safe and in good hands... she clearly has so much experience dealing with trauma. I had had a serious car accident which had created crippling anxiety whenever I stepped outside. Over the 6 online sessions, I could feel the anxiety slowly retreating and now I feel back to who I was before the accident. Through the whole process, Lesley was professional but very warm and understanding... helping me to navigate the past trauma and understand the reaction to the accident. I would thoroughly recommend working with Lesley if you are stuck in a trauma response which is affecting your life."

She consistently delivered services to a wide range of people in difficult and challenging circumstances, maintaining consistently high standards of professional practice whilst not being afraid to show a very human and caring approach.
