About Lesley Butlin

30 Year’s Experience in Mental Health

I spent 18 years working as a Mental Health Nurse in the NHS with Adults, Families and Young People.

I am a qualified Counsellor and a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) registered Psychotherapist for Adults, Children and Young People and have run a successful private psychotherapy practice since 1995.

There is so much information written about different types of therapy and how people can benefit, before I list my experience and professional qualifications, I want to recognise how difficult it is to pick a Therapist. I always suggest that you arrange to see me for a one off appointment,: I believe what really makes the difference to how you feel, is if you are comfortable and happy with me and what I offer in the therapeutic relationship.

Also, as someone looking for therapy, I remember as a client I didn’t really know what I wanted to change, or what would help me. I offer the one off assessment appointment, so together we can begin to work out, what you are unhappy with, what changes, you want to make and whether I can help you do that.
