Listening with Empathy

Find meaning and get help to make positive change in your private and professional life. Counselling and therapy provide a non-judgemental, safe, confidential place to talk to an impartial person about what’s worrying you.

“The destiny of every human being is decided by what goes on inside his skull when confronted by what goes on outside his skull.”

Eric Berne, founder Transactional Analysis

“An unexamined life is not worth living.”

Socrates, Ancient Greek philosopher

Never underestimate the power of talking with someone who really listens.

When you need a sounding board, someone to really listen to you, counselling can provide the support to help you move forward. Whether you need short-term counselling or long-term therapy, Val can be there to help you reflect on your actions or behaviours that may be getting in the way of living more fully.

Counselling and therapy is confidential

Val Leveson is an experienced counsellor with strong personal integrity and genuine empathy for others. She is there to help you discover your own narrative and support you as you deal with any issues that may be impeding your life.

Therapists are objective

You are the expert of your life. Val is trained to listen, to understand and to encourage independent thinking and self-reflection. She is there to help you work out what’s best for you moving forward.

Therapy focuses on you

The focus is on you and your wellbeing and one size does not fit all. Val Leveson varies her approach to what suits you best. Every counselling and therapy session is tailored to match your needs and experiences in a person-centred way, with discussing the approach with you. Having someone really be there with you, being attuned to your story and your emotions can be the key to good, effective work.

You’re not alone

Effective counselling is a collaborative process. Together, you and Val will work on overcoming the obstacles which keep you from living the life you want. She will be there to help you to tell your story and develop the responses that will work for you.
