Psychotherapy & Counselling in Leeds, West YorkshireDr Lucy Frank (Dip Psych, UKCP Registered, MBACP).
I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor registered by UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and I abide by the UKCP code of ethics as well as the ethics laid down by my training institute, The Northern Guild for Psychotherapy. I am also a registered member of BACP. I have a private practice based at The Orchard Therapy Centre in Horsforth, Leeds. I have also worked as a practice psychotherapist and counsellor at a GP surgery and so have experience working with a wide range of people and mental health difficulties.
I offer you a safe, supportive, confidential space that is separate from your everyday life so that you can talk about what is on your mind. Sometimes emotional issues or life events can preoccupy us or leave us feeling anxious, confused, angry or depressed. Maybe the way you're feeling is affecting your work, your relationships, your sleep patterns. Perhaps you’re finding that other people don’t really understand how you’re feeling and you may be struggling to make sense of your own emotions. Or it might be that you’re aware of certain patterns in your life which seem to keep repeating over time but are hard to make sense of or to change. Talking to a professional therapist can help you to untangle difficult thoughts and emotions and assist you with finding a way forward when you're feeling stuck.

• Anxiety, stress and panic
