THERAPY & GROUP WORK
Experience the Difference
Lea has worked in private practice since 2015. Lea is the founder and director of Act for Change UK, Mental Health Charity for young people, working mainly with abuse and trauma. Lea is a process-oriented psychotherapist, facilitator and trainer. Lea is interested in what is emerging beyond what is known and identified in the present. Before training as a psychotherapist, She holds an LLB in Law from the London School of Economics, and she’s a Fellow in Holocaust Education with the Imperial War Museum and a Fellow with the School of Social Enterprise.
Lea's work has been laid down through her life experiences of growing up in an international community in Geneva and continues to be forged through her work with a wide array of people and experiences in the multicultural and diverse city that is London.
Approach to therapy
As a therapist, Lea seeks to be a companion to you when you face a challenge, hardship, or creative block. Lea will be guided by your process, situation, personal nature and goals while bringing an attitude that values all the parts of ourselves with awareness, curiosity and non-judgment. Within each case, we will together look for resources, pathways and solutions. You might bring a specific personal or collective issue that affects you. It may be that you bring a desire for your personal growth. Lea is interested in exploring with you how your history is present in your life. Lea will support you to be curious about how the disturbances and challenges you face also contain the seeds of your growth. She sees this as a matter of being and becoming more - of yourself. Lea works with individuals, couples and groups. She welcomes people of all ethnic backgrounds, faiths, abilities, genders, abilities. Sessions can take place online on Zoom or face to face in either North or West London. Sessions are offered in English or French and she also speaks Hebrew and Spanish.
Lea is interested in engaging with diversity issues that both enrich and trouble us. Lea has been active for many years in community building and collaborations between communities, organisations and institutions of learning. The focus of her work with communities has been community conflict, trauma and community development and leadership. Lea has worked with a range of faith communities, community centres and local authorities to effect change. Lea runs several monthly groups that range from exploring how we facilitate ourselves; the impact of child abuse within an institutional setting; and to examine the presence of our histories in our day-to-day lives. Lea is one of the founding members of the Deep Democracy Forum in London co-facilitating small public forums on diverse social issues. Since the pandemic, our public conversations are focused around Dreaming the Future, and various aspects of inequality, disability and inclusion.

Types of Therapy
An initial consultation costs £75. I then offer a sliding scale which ranges from £45 to £75 from which we can negotiate the fee for your sessions. I am sometimes able to negotiate lower prices for people on a low income. Therapy can be short or longer-term. You may end therapy at any time, only by letting us know.
