Lea Misan Counselling for Bedford and Central London

About #01


I work part-time in private practice. Rivers Way Counselling is part of the Rivers Way Clinic, affiliated with the Process Work Institute (PWI) of Portland, Oregon, a non-profit educational institution devoted to research and training in process-oriented psychology (also known as Process Work). The clinic both in Portland and here in London, provides high quality, affordable mental health counselling and is staffed by senior process work students who are supervised by licensed clinical practitioners (PhDs and PsyDs).

I spend the rest of my time developing smart collaborative tools for individuals, teams and organisations wishing to unlock their own potential. I also run a charity, Act for Change, working with young people who have experienced trauma and/or adversity in their lives.

I hold a LLB in Law from the London School of Economics, am a Fellow in Holocaust Education with the Imperial War Museum, a Fellow with the School of Social Enterprise, and I hold a certificate in Humanistic and integrative counselling. For the past 7 years I have been exploring Process Work more deeply. An approach to working with my clients with an emphasis on valuing all the parts of ourselves with awareness, curiosity and non-judgement. I use a process-oriented, integrative model.

I am a counsellor and process oriented facilitator, trainer and UKCP accredited therapist-in- training. Born in Israel, I grew up in Geneva, and now live in London, UK with my husband and 3 children. I work with individuals and groups and run a small charity which I founded, Act for Change. The charity works to help young people with social communication challenges and those who have experienced childhood trauma develop the skills they need to overcome the adversity in their lives. I have worked with parents, families, communities as well as local authorities to create change. I have recently begun co-facilitating small public forums on diverse social issues.
The background of my work has been laid down through my life experiences of growing up in an international community in Geneva and continues to be forged through my work with a wide array of people and experiences in the multi cultural and diverse city that is London. I am interested in engaging with diversity issues that both enrich and trouble us as individuals and communities and have been active for many years in community building and collaborations between communities, organisations and institutions of learning.

I am interested in the diversity we hold inside of ourselves and in the communities we create in the world. I am passionate about our ability to create individual and collective change by connecting to our deepest selves.
