Lea is passionate about working with all people, including Neurodiverse individuals, young people and kids.
Lea absolutely loves animals and works with Snowflake and Sprinkles in her sessions, at the Croydon clinic every Wednesday, and is also in the process of training two of her cats to also assist her in therapy sessions.
Lea uses the most modern form of hypnotherapy, Neo-Ericksonian Hypnosis. This permissive style is highly effective with most adults, young people and kids. Lea uses unique storytelling with kids that allows them to focus their attention, while delivering therapeutic messages relating to the issues they are experiencing. The approach with adults is slightly different, however the goal is the same.
Lea combines all of her qualifications to deliver a warm, friendly and solution oriented approach. Lea believes therapy can be fun and engaging and by focusing on individual strengths and resources clients can learn to adapt new ways of thinking, and address the issues they are experiencing. Lea offers a safe, non – judgmental space allowing all clients to be seen, heard and recognized as people beyond the challenges they are facing.
Lea works with a variety of conditions including anxiety, anger, panic attacks, emotional regulation, unwanted thought patterns, mild depression, grief, low self-esteem, phobias, obsessive compulsive behaviors, pain, insomnia, trauma and smoking cessation.
