Welcome to Leonie Sinclair Psychology

Individual counselling and psychotherapy offered in a comfortable, private setting in Thornbury.

I offer a safe, supportive space where relationship and personal issues can be explored. I provide both short term counselling and long term psychotherapy. Goals can be achieved with brief interventions, but for lasting impact on personal growth and general well-being deeper psychological exploration is recommended.

An important foundation of my work is establishing a respectful and non-judgemental relationship with the people who come to see me. I approach therapy from a heart-centred perspective, believing that an authentic dialogue is a very healing experience.

I am experienced in treating people with a broad range of issues. I have a particular interest in working with people undergoing transitions from one life stage to another, which includes relationship breakdown and adjustment to new environments.

I specialize in Grief Counselling, being aware that grief can take many forms, including the loss of career, partner or pet. I believe that grief underlies many presenting issues, especially depression. I am successful in treating anxiety and panic reactions.

I enjoy working with couples and have found that Couple’s Counselling is a very effective way of dealing with relationship and sexual issues. I am an experienced counsellor of same-sex attracted adults and couples.

Other professional interests include the closely linked issues of Perfectionism, Narcissism, and Shame, especially as experienced by men. I have an abiding interest in the many forms of Narcissism.

My open mindedness and helpful insights are the greatest source of therapeutic support for clients. It is an honour and privilege to witness the intimate aspects of people's lives.
