Ms Jess Leigh
Online Therapy Available
Hi, I’m Jess. I am an independent counsellor based in Auckland. It is my belief that sourcing mental health support is an act of courage and self-compassion. The helping relationship is something I have always been drawn to, and counselling was a natural fit for this. My approach is simple. It is my belief that you, the client, are the expert on your life, I am here to walk alongside, support, and highlight your blind spots. My training has been in the Relational Integrative Model, which is a combination of Humanistic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic Therapy. I have also undertaken training in: • Addiction and Intervention • Narrative Therapy • ADHB Rainbow Training • Crisis Intervention I can help with difficulties relating to; • Depression • Anxiety • Addiction/Substance Abuse • Grief • Interpersonal Relationships • Personal Growth Perhaps you are simply looking for a place to unpack or unwind. If you don’t see your area of concern listed, please do reach out, I am available for support in all areas within my scope of training. Experience Over the past few years, I have worked with clients on a wide range of issues. I have experience working with clients in settings such as schools, crisis lines, and alcohol and drug treatment centres.
