Welcome to Lesley Emerson Counselling

My name is Lesley Emerson, I am a local, qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Larkhall, South Lanarkshire, Scotland. I am an Accredited Member of The National Counselling Society and belong to the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Register. I am qualified in Integrative Therapy, which means I use and combine, various therapeutic tools and counselling techniques that I tailor to meet the individual needs and personal circumstances of my clients.

I provide counselling services for clients of all ages, gender, background, and ethnicity, including children, teenagers, adults, families, and couples. I have worked with Place2Be, a leading children’s mental health charity, Cruse Bereavement Care, and Who Cares? Scotland, an organisation that works with care experienced young people and care leavers.

“One of Lesley’s strong points is making you feel at ease. She also has a wonderful gift for making you feel incredibly safe and brave, she is an exceptional counsellor.”

I have been in private practice since 2019 and provide my counselling services from my therapy room within my home in Larkhall, South Lanarkshire, Scotland. My therapy room is a safe, secure, and confidential space. It enables you to talk freely about your specific problems, issues, and challenges etc. If you feel sad, depressed, low, anxious, scared, worried, or angry, we can explore whatever is needed to help you begin to feel yourself again.

Along with face-to-face counselling sessions, I also offer home visits and provide online counselling sessions via Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp, and the telephone.
