About us

Lesley Kushner
Lesley founded Alchemy to provide family mediation, therapy and family consultancy services to clients throughout Kent and East Sussex. She is an experienced family mediator, family consultant, counsellor and psychotherapist working with individual men and women, adults and young people, couples and families.

As a mediator and family consultant the focus of her work is in family dispute resolution, often related to separation and divorce. She is particularly passionate about minimising any negative emotional and psychological impact family breakup may have on children and she is a Direct Child Consultant - this means she is qualified to see children of couples in dispute to allow the children's voices to be heard.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist Lesley's theoretical framework is integrative and systemic, with Transactional Analysis as her prime theoretical model. She works with individual adults and young people, couples or families with a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self esteem, work stress and many more concerns.

Lesley is accredited by the Family Mediation Council, a registered member of the Family Mediators Association and a Family Consultant certified by Resolution, she is also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
