City Road Therapy – Professional face-to-face & online Therapy in London

Leigh McAlea

Welcome. I am a straightforward, warm, and compassionate counsellor, with a steadfast commitment to every person’s potential for growth. I provide a safe, empathetic, and honest space to help my clients understand, and work through, difficult often-painful feelings and experiences.

I believe therapy can be a life enhancing opportunity to reflect on feelings, talk about mental distress, and explore and name problematic thoughts and behaviours, with support and without judgement.

Integrative therapy with Leigh

I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor working with adults (18+) to understand how current problems may be shaped by past experiences and significant relationships. Many clients I work with seek therapy because they feel depressed, stuck, lost and anxious. Some want to improve their relationships, address trauma, and make sense of their internal world. Others need a place to grieve and be with complicated feelings of loss.

I work with clients in a collaboratively created space where you are heard, understood, and respected. We will work together to safely identify and explore the problems and issues you bring, so they can be fully understood and released, making way for meaningful positive change and a well-lived life.


Advanced Diploma in Integrative Humanistic Counselling, accredited by the BACP

Before training as a psychotherapist, I worked for a decade in the music industry. After completing an MA in Human Rights, I worked for international development and environmental NGOs.
