About us

Lee Wallace (UKCP Reg).

I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist in the voluntary sector in Leeds since 2003 including East Leeds Counselling Service and Leeds Mind. I began working with young people in 2004 at Braim Wood Boys’ High School as counsellor and then later at the David Young Community Academy as Team Leader responsible for pupil support, behaviour management and was the lead school counsellor.
I have also been a self-employed therapist at Burley Lodge Counselling Service in West Leeds.

In my time as a therapist I have worked with a diverse range of young people and adults, providing both long and short-term therapy. Within this time I have seen the capacity for people to change and grow when offered a quality of relationship and environment. I draw deep purpose from working with people in ways which often prove to be life-changing.

(ACCRD) Richard Gale (MBACP).

I have been providing counselling and psychotherapy since 2003. In that time I have worked with a wide range of people who have brought a wide range of issues; all individual and all unique in the ways they have worked through their issues.
In my experience as a manager of a state funded counselling service in Leeds I have been responsible for all aspects of a counselling service and managing a clinical team of counsellors; supporting their work and professional development.
I have also worked as a Part Time Tutor for Thomas Danby College, teaching Counselling Skills to Adult Learners. I have taught NLP (Neuro- Linguistic Programming) at the Swarthmore Education Centre. In addition to this, I have experience of being part of a team providing behavioural, emotional and therapeutic support to pupils in a Leeds High School who were at risk of exclusion or permanent exclusion.

I have a deep regard for the humanity in us all and over the years have come to believe that we all have the ability to grow, change and heal ourselves and each other no matter what our standing or starting point.
