Hello, My name is Leasha Esslemont, I have over 16 years counselling experience working within Aberdeen charities, NHS providers and in my own private practice. I specialise in trauma recovery, childhood abuse & neglect although I am open to work with any issue.
Life often takes us out of balance and harmony, sometimes we struggle to find that peaceful place that is within us all. It can be helpful to have someone by your side to provide the right support so you can explore issues safely and in your own way. As a person centred counsellor, I believe we can all find our way forward and grow through even the most challenging experiences.
I offer short and long term talking therapy which can help with many difficult life problems – from coping with traumatic experience and events, to dealing with depression and anxiety or managing harmful emotions and behaviours.
I hope to provide clients with a holistic approach to their challenges, acknowledging and working with the mind- body connection & disconnection. I am a qualified and experienced Yoga teacher and this can be helpful in my therapeutic work. For more details visit http://www.virtual-yoga.co.uk
There can be many reasons virtual counselling may be more appropriate for you including; accessibility, affordability, anonymity and convenience.
I am happy to use Zoom, FaceTime or Skype platforms for sessions.
Counselling with both clients present virtually at each session gives an opportunity for improved communication which can help to resolve issues within the intimate relationship allowing you to reach your own conclusions under professional guidance.
This form of therapy can help with issues such as; lack of trust, betrayal or affair, jealousy, lack of communication, financial issues, work-related stress, different sexual needs or other sexual issues, family conflicts, different goals & values, parenting issues and life changes to name a few.
Counselling for traumatic events which have overwhelmed the body & mind this can be caused by; abuse, accidents, brain tumour or injury, catastrophic events, physical injury, terminal illness, bereavement and violence.
Payment is required at least 24 hours before session.
