Raising awareness about mental health with a compassionate ear for learners

Learners from PM Training now have access to a counsellor, with a wide variety of support options to help them in their day-to-day lives.

Leanne Duthie will be working closely with learners to provide a trusting, humanistic approach to mental health counselling.

Leanne offers a compassionate ear, listening without judgement, allowing learners to take the lead in discussions. She offers them the chance to discover their own solutions by supporting and encouraging them throughout the process.

Person-centred therapy is designed to help you gain more self-confidence and the ability to make decisions and trust in your own ability. Leanne works with a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bereavement, bullying, anger, stress, self-harm, feeling sad, suicidal thoughts, emotional abuse and gender issues.

One learner from PM Training, who has already taken up Leanne’s services, commented: “I feel counselling has really helped me. It’s so nice to have such an amazing person to help see things from such a beautiful perspective.”

Learners can get between six to eight counselling sessions. There are a variety of different ways learners can follow on after these sessions, from being introduced to calming apps, mindfulness, breathing exercises and being signposted to other organisations for support.

This counselling service is completely free to learners at PM Training and is funded by Realise charity.
