Welcome to Richard Leishman Counselling and Psychotherapy

Based near Haslemere, on the borders of Surrey, Hampshire and West Sussex, I am committed to providing helpful, supportive and confidential counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and non-judgemental environment.

Having completed my counselling training to master's degree level, I am experienced in both short and longer term counselling with clients across a wide range of issues, including:

  • Anxiety - social anxiety, generalised anxiety, phobias and panic attacks
  • Trauma
  • Attachment and Relationship issues
  • Depression
  • Perfectionism
  • Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem
  • Abuse
  • Addiction
  • Anger Management
  • Bereavement
  • Identity issues
  • Stress
  • Alcohol/Substance dependency

I believe that one of the most important aspects of this process is to find a therapist you can feel comfortable talking to and who will really listen and try to understand your difficulties from your personal perspective. I am very happy to answer any questions you may have, by telephone or email, without any obligation on your own part, before you decide if you would like us to work together. The other sections on this website offer much more detail on how I work and my qualifications and experience, which I hope are helpful.
