My name is Mia Lake and I'm a Counsellor & Registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy).
MindMove are located in Leeds7 (Chapel Allerton), Leeds 26 (Oulton) & Leeds 15 (Colton/Whitkirk).
I work with men, women, young people (aged 11-18 years) and couples. The issues clients bring to counselling can be extremely varied and some quite complex. You are an individual and I treat you as one.
Life can feel hard when you are experiencing difficulties or when you are trying to make sense of things, past or present.
You may be still unsure whether or not you want to explore some of your feelings - but by looking at this website, you are taking your first step towards being open to this and perhaps being honest with yourself.
There can be many reasons for seeking counselling, such as loss, loneliness, feeling anxious, low self-esteem or you may have symptoms of depression. There may be other reasons ...such as panic attacks, phobias, PTSD, adultery, eating issues, problems within your marriage/relationship, sexual/domestic abuse, drug addiction or self-harm, self-image, anger, bullying, work issues, family life, terminal illness diagnosis/chronic illness. This list in not exhaustive.
Providing you with an environment that is professional, safe and free from judgement, can be so helpful in moving forward from that ‘stuck’ place you may find yourself in.
While you take your time to 'unravel' some of the things you are struggling with, I will be alongside you. Together we can look at some of the underlying issues behind these difficulties.
Caring for yourself is a necessity, not a luxury and counselling offers YOU the time each week to look at the things in your life that are preventing you from moving forward.
I offer telephone, Skype, Face-Time & Whatsapp sessions, for clients on the go/travelling; or for those who prefer to have sessions in the comfort of their own environment.
You can also find MindMove on BACP's Find a Therapist website, Counselling Directory & Psychology Today. I am also one of the practioners at Healthwise Therapy Centre, in Chapel Allerton, Leeds 7.
