Louise Leonard

Psychotherapist, registered with UKCP


I am a UKCP-registered psychotherapist with several years of experience. I offer one-to-one long or short-term therapy for adults. 

I offer face-to-face psychotherapy/counselling in my therapy room in a building that meets COVID secure guidelines or if you prefer we can work online. My therapy room is located in Haggerston, Hackney, East London.

How I work

My practice takes a Person-Centred approach. This means that I hold the fundamental belief that deep down you know what's best to achieve your own optimum outcome in any life problem. Therefore, I will never claim to be an expert on your experience. Instead, I will endeavor to support and empower you to clarify your own thoughts and feelings. Sometimes it's hard for us to get in touch with that inner knowing because throughout our lives we may have internalised judgements from others. This can create an internal conflict or a block. I aim to create an accepting, non-judgemental, understanding environment that can give you the space to work through any issues safely, confidentially, and at your own pace. Working together we can find ways to untangle your blocks, get closer to your inner knowing and move towards becoming the person you want to be.

About me

Originally from New York, I have been living in London since 1989. I spent 20 years as a BBC film editor working on various dramas and documentary programmes. In 2009 I decided to move on and pursue my longstanding interest in well-being. This led me to a period of study where I gained a BSc in Psychology and a post-graduate diploma in psychotherapy. I am pursuing further study to gain an MSc in psychotherapeutic applications. I have also gained yoga teaching qualifications along the way and continue to teach yoga which I find gives me a rounded experience of physical as well as emotional and psychological well-being. I enjoy living in Hackney where I live with my partner and two nearly adult daughters.
