Leif Lawson

Languages Spoken:

I offer a warm and empathetic space within which you can safely share what is on your mind and work through the challenges you are facing. I take a holistic approach to counselling, and believe that trust between a client and therapist is the cornerstone of effective counselling. Together we will work towards you developing a stronger, healthier and more secure sense of self.Among the issues I have worked through with previous clients are: low self-esteem; identity challenges, including their sexuality; the pain of loss and bereavement; the stress from work, study and family demands; relationship breakdown; as well as anxiety and depression. I am also committed to working with people from both sexes, all ethnic backgrounds and sexual identities.Prior to becoming a counsellor, I had a wide ranging career working in both the university and health & fitness industries. I also have extensive life experience gained in part through living in many different parts of the world.After 15 years of living abroad and the past 7 years working as a psychotherapist in Edinburgh and then Oxford, I'm very happy to be returning home. I look forward to bringing my knowledge and experience to clients and organisations within Australia. I am accredited and work ethically and within the guidelines and framework of the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and COSCA (the Scottish Counselling Association).
