About Corton Counselling

Lesley Freeman – Person-Centred Counsellor & Counselling Supervisor (Member of BACP) and qualified through the Central School of Counselling & Therapy (London).

I have been a counsellor for 9 years, including 2 years in a hospice, supporting families of terminally ill patients and the bereaved and students at a Norfolk college. I have been a volunteer counsellor at SeVA (Sexual Violence Alliance) in Norwich, supporting rape victims and survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I have previously worked in Children's Centres in London, working with parents from diverse cultures and women from Holloway Prison.

I worked as a volunteer course leader and student counsellor at a vocational training centre for Tibetan refugee children in Northern India and have written and delivered training courses and workshops on women's studies, employability, confidence building and self-esteem. I have written a book about my life and work as a Volunteer in India, which received a foreword from His Holiness Dalai Lama.

Person Centred Counselling is a widely used therapeutic model of counselling. Using this technique, the counsellor creates a comfortable, non-judgmental environment by demonstrating genuineness, empathy, and unconditional positive regard toward the client, while using a non-directive approach. This aids the client in finding their own solutions to their problems.

My counselling approach is encouraging, challenging and pro-active. I believe that everyone can reach their own potential with the right understanding, encouragement and trusting relationship with their counsellor. I first became interested in counselling after being a secretary in the City for many years and studied at the Central School of Counselling and Therapy in London.

I am currently going through the BACP accreditation process.

I also offer trainee counsellors and qualified counsellors supervision.
