Hello, my name is Kai Manchester,
I’m an experienced registered Integrative Counsellor & Equine Therapist. This means I adapt therapy to suit your individual needs. Because your needs are important and individual to you I provide a tailored approach to therapy.
The therapy space is quiet, calming and confidential, located in the LS1 area of Leeds which benefits from 2 minutes walk from a scenic park and 5 minutes walk from the train station. Offering great transport links and various parking options from on street parking right outside the office to a multi storey car park just down the road.
I offer a tailored, down to earth, non-judgemental approach to therapy. The benefit of therapy is in discovering the reasons ‘why’ behind your mental health struggles, the reasons why we might have anxiety for example, healing your mental health and managing it going forward.
Imagine if we broke a bone, we might see a doctor, we might get a cast to set the bone while it mends and we might go to a gym or some sort of physical therapy in order to rebuild the muscles around the injury and be able to use that limb again. Counselling is much like that physical health process but for your mental health. Counselling will get to the bottom of why your mental health might be low at the moment, teach you the skills you need in order to manage your mental health and help you gain quality of life to do the things you want to do and to live the life you want to lead.
It can be a particularly difficult and overwhelming choice to start therapy as such I invite you to ask any questions you like to make sure the decision to work together is right for you.
We can have a conversation about your needs, so you can be confident in your decision. I also offer a free, no obligation consultation session so you can see if you would like to proceed.
I work with a variety of client concerns and specialise in anxiety disorders. A list of other issues I work with can be found at the bottom of my page, if you do not see what you are looking for on the list, please do reach out to see if it is something I work with as the list is not extensive.
I offer in person sessions in Leeds and remote sessions (online) which means you can see me no matter where you are based. I offer short and long term therapy.
I also offer couples therapy, student counselling and a variety of concessions.
Contact me to discuss your needs and schedule your first appointment.
I look forward to meeting you.
