Welcome to New Leaf Therapy
Your Pathway To Personal Growth
My name is Ros Powell and I have been a counsellor and trainer for more than 30 years, working in private practice, seeing clients with many different problems, ranging from work-related stress and relationship issues to anxiety, depression and many others.
I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy Registered Accredited Practitioner. You can see my BACP Registration here.
I use an integrative model and also a cognitive behavioural approach which helps clients to challenge their negative, and sometimes irrational thoughts, and to find more realistic responses.
I also use a brief therapy model when appropriate, which means clients focus on solving the problems by setting realistic goals and making the necessary changes in their lives. More recently the use of Emotional Freedom Technique has helped to accelerate the counselling process with many clients.
I am also an Emotional Freedom Technique Advanced Practitioner and has experienced a very high level of success using this therapy for both physical and emotional problems.
One of my particular interests is helping clients with addiction problems, which includes drugs, alcohol and gambling. I teach most of my clients relaxation skills, which generally prove very effective and beneficial. These skills help clients to relax and can also help to reduce cravings for drugs or alcohol.
I am experienced in trauma work and have counselled may people who have been through very distressing events, such as stabbings, muggings and bank raids. I was involved in counselling at the Paddington rail disaster. I also ran therapy groups at The Woodbourne Priory private psychiatric hospital, both for general patients and for The Addictions Treatment Programme for many years.
