LESLEY NIVEN

Counsellor - Social Worker

Helping you to live your best life.

Masters in Counselling Practice

Bachelor of Social Work (Honors)

Lesley is kind and compassionate and loves to meet new people and hear their unique stories. She understands life, families and relationships are not always easy and she offers a safe non-judgmental space to explore and imagine new possibilities.

Drawing from therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution Focus, Art Therapy, Gestalt, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and Walk and Talk Therapy, Lesley will work intuitively with you to find what best assists you. With these different therapies in her “toolbox”, and an overall Person-Centered approach, Lesley has experience counselling people with depression, anxiety, grief and loss.

Lesley also works with adolescents in a residential care environment which has given her firsthand experience of the effects of trauma on the body, behaviour and emotions. Life experience in hospitality and retail for 20 years lead Lesley on to a new journey into a more meaningful life helping people to be the best they can be. Lesley values the therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and client and will work in collaboration with you wherever you are on your journey through life.
