Lesley Houghton B.A. (Hons) Person Centred Counselling (BACP Accredited)
I have worked as a Counsellor since 2007, in both Lowestoft and Gt. Yarmouth. I initially worked with age range 16 plus for Kirkley Counselling and am presently employed by Great Yarmouth Community Trust. I have continued to study throughout this period and hold both a post-grad certificate in Systemic Family Practice and a Supervision qualification. I can offer individual counselling, couple counselling and professional supervision.
I have a BA Hons degree in Person Centred Counselling and a Post Graduate Diploma in Interrogative Clinical Supervision. I have also undergone training in bereavement and loss, counselling couples and animal assisted therapy. I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
I have been counselling since 2007, and supervising since 2012. In the past I have been a member of several different counselling organisations, including Kirkley Counselling Service.
I counsel for Great Yarmouth Community Trust, encountering many different struggles and challenges that clients bring. I also counsel for the Bereavement Service at the James Paget University Hospital, working with complicated loss. I have also maintained a small private practice.
I hold a BA (Hons) in Integrative Counselling. I have been working at Great Yarmouth Community Trust since 2015 with one of my roles being a counsellor. I am a registered member of the BACP.
I also counsel at the Bereavement service at the James Paget University Hospital.
One of my other roles within the Parent Infant Mental Health Support team (PIMHS), is running therapeutic groups and offering family support to families.
