I warmly welcome you to my website and to consider what I can offer if you are struggling with issues, or if you are stuck and would like to find a happier place to be, within yourself.
My name is Lesley Inglis Sex and Relationship Psychotherapist (and Online Counsellor UK ) and I have been providing Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy in the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Berwick upon Tweed for the past fifteen years. I specialise in treating various difficulties that I address on these pages and work within a sunny atmosphere of respect, acceptance and confidentiality. I understand how painful emotional distress can often lead to feeling vulnerable and afraid. Let me help you to find the strength and courage to move forward from a state of angst and closer to a calmer, more positive way of being. If you have Fibromyalgia, are Expats, are in the Army and/or have Mental Health conditions, I will also be happy to hear from you .
What can you expect from working with me on difficult issues?
I shall listen carefully to you and will ask questions to help me understand your difficulty, i.e. the assessment process. I shall also be specific about what is helpful and what is unhelpful if you wish to change any behaviours that are problematic. I consider all aspects of human behaviour without embarrassment and will put you at ease. I have wide experience of people and their challenges. I feel privileged to help you understand yourself, situations and relationships better and to take steps to make positive changes, if that is your wish.
What kind of people problems do I work with?
How many sessions do people need? Initial Free 30min Consultation -overviewing difficulties
I work with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or a set number of sessions. I am very experienced at providing brief therapy (6 session model) for mild to moderate mental health difficulties. A lot of couple work is helping partners to have difficult conversations, to understand each other as individuals and your needs as a couple. Online Psychosexual Therapy and Addiction work is likely to be a longer term therapy. If you just want one session to find out if working with me is right for you, that is also ok. What is most important is that I work with 'people' not just conditions or diagnoses. I offer a safe, trusting and genuine therapeutic relationship built on empathy and compassion.
Working as Qualified Online Counsellor UK using Instant Messaging, Email and Voice
As a trained and qualified Online practitioner, I provide Online Psychosexual Therapy via instant messaging,(no webcam protecting identity) Email Therapy and voice - i.e. talking via an Online platform similar to Skype. This means that I can work as a counsellor with people from any geographical area from WV1 7AD to ZE and TD postcodes. Successful online work is tremendous in helping people who; feel embarrassed, live in rural areas, are parents with small children, have physical disabilities and people in the public eye. I welcome, and offer women, love addiction counselling online , as they may be able to engage with Online counselling via instant messaging, whereas the thought of having to speak face to face in a session may be too overwhelming.
If you wish to work with me or just want to find out more, I look forward to hearing from you. I am insured to work Online world wide and in the UK covering all Postcodes from WV1 7AD to ZE. I hope to soon offer face to face appointments in a central TD postcode location, for people in the Scottish Borders,(e.g. Eyemouth, Chirnside, Duns, Greenlaw, Gordon, Kelso, Earlston, Galashiels, Selkirk, Hawick, Innerleithen and Peebles areas) and also Berwick upon Tweed. I provide a contract of terms and conditions covering all necessary points to help protect both of us from a legal, professional, moral and ethical point of view.
Face to Face appointments now available in the Scottish Borders. Please Email for more information.
