Welcome to my website
I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and have Continued to Study in Many Areas such as Addiction, Impulse Control Behaviour, Domestic Violence, Sexual Abuse, Mindfulness, and Energy Psychotherapy.
My Name is Lee Tomlin
I began my studies searching , as someone who left school with an A in Art and Drama and not much more, due to having Written Expression Disorder. It felt incredibly hard later in life to get to into and begin University.
I began at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia, doing a BA in Psychology - Women's studies, I realised after a semester it was not quite right for me, I moved onto the University of Murdoch in Perth, to do a BA in Gender and Cultural Studies, here I did Sociology, Cultural studies, Creativity and Change, and Reinventing Australia which I loved also a unit in Writing for Professional purposes, which I failed, (I don't know what I was thinking as someone with Dysgraphia!) I finished the year and heard on the grapevine about a BA in Counselling at the University of Notre Dame in Fremantle Perth, after being accepted , I completed a 4 year, three in counselling and a compulsory year which included a semester each of Health communication, Philosophy, Theology and Ethics, all these come in use in my work as a therapist.
I went on to work for Centre Care, a non-profit counselling agency in Perth, Western Australia. While at Centre Care I continued to study, completing courses such as training in gambling help for 4 years, Mental Health First Aid, more Mindfulness training and many others. During this time I specialised in working with people struggling with gambling addictions,
doing educational support,
facilitating group therapy and one-to-one general counselling.
I continue to study and have recently qualified with a diploma in Energy Psychotherapy and have begun and completed Professional Skills level 1 in Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as Tapping.
I have worked with clients in a variety of settings including men and women in prison, and young people in schools.
In addition to this I have trained staff at the Crown Casino in Perth and Lotterywest on gambling awareness, I have worked in private practice now for 9 years in the UK.
Since being a counsellor, I’ve focused on helping my clients move into clearer places where they can make choices and be more confident to do this alone. Confidence comes with authenticity and a knowing about yourself.
Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of you living a full and happier life. Give yourself the gift of the moment.
And remember 'Hope is not a feeling it's an action'! (From song by The Bengsons)
