Leon MillingenIntegrative counsellor
*During Covid-19 I am offering online or phone counselling for only £40 and a further discount for NHS staff*
I offer an impartial, safe, and non-judgemental space for you to explore your emotions, feelings and thoughts at either my Clapham Junction SW11 or Mitcham CR4 counselling practices. I will support you in a holistic way - by working with you, to facilitate a greater understanding of your frustrations and difficulties as well as your strengths and abilities. I aim to empower my clients during counselling to challenge unwanted behavioural patterns, thoughts or emotions and explore new possibilities. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life.
I am a BACP qualified counsellor and I work integratively, depending on what fits best with the individual client. The sessions are usually client led and I will help you find positive ways of dealing with your issues of concern. My approaches are humanistic, and I believe in encouraging a good therapeutic relationship of trust, confidentiality and safety.

Training and qualifications
Leon Millingen (MBACP)
I am an Integrative Counsellor with a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)
Currently I am working with severely addicted gamblers at a residential treatment centre in London and have a specific interest in working with people with gambling issues, and also those affected by their addiction.
I also have experience working with Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques.
My approaches are humanistic, meaning I believe that a good therapeutic relationship of trust, confidentiality and safety will enable the client to feel safe to explore thoughts and feelings.
I also work psychodynamically and believe that a lot of issues can be helped by delving into the history of the client and making sense of where current thoughts and behaviours come from and what may trigger them.
I have worked with a wide range of issues, including (but not exclusively) depression, self esteem, suicidal thoughts, relationships, gender issues, anxiety, problem gambling, anger and workplace issues.
