Aurelia Sleigh
Therapist
Aurelia Sleigh

Aurelia Sleigh

Aurelia joined Priory in 2020 as a Sessional Therapist, before securing a permanent role as Integrative Therapist in 2021.  Aurelia sees outpatients on a 1-2-1 basis and also runs four groups for inpatients at the hospital. 

Prior to joining Priory, Aurelia worked as a School Therapist in a local secondary school, supporting students with complex mental health difficulties. During this time, Aurelia established links with the local CAMHS teams to ensure a collaborative and safe working environment for the young people.

Aurelia has been established in her own private practice since 2019, working with both adults and young people between 11-18 years. 

Aurelia has worked in many charity settings to gain experience across different areas such as addictions, complex mental health and within the carers setting.

Research Interests

As part of her BA (Hons) Integrative Counselling Degree, Aurelia undertook a work-based learning project and stakeholder analysis to understand the limitations of local services on supporting individuals diagnosed with binge eating disorder (BED). This resulted in a Pilot Therapeutic Group being organised and run by Aurelia and supported by Bristol Mind, the Mental Health Charity. The outcome of the Pilot Group confirmed the need for individuals diagnosed with binge eating disorder, to be able to access therapeutic group support as well as 1-2-1 support.

As a relational therapist, I offer a professional, warm, empathetic approach to therapy. 

I am able to offer a safe and supportive space for the exploration of concerns or issues from the past, present or future. I offer an integrative approach which means that I am able to adapt my approach dependent upon what is brought to the therapy space.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative experience, where you are able to explore solutions to support you in your day-to-day life. I believe that growing a sense of self-compassion and kindness can support the growth of a different relationship with yourself, to build self-worth, self-esteem and self-confidence. 

I comfortably share my own knowledge and understanding of psychological theories supported by an evidence-based practice. I adhere to the Ethical Framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which supports an open, honest and transparent way of working.
