B.T Counselling Chelsey Harvey Adv.Dip.Couns. MBACP (individual)
My name is Chelsey Harvey. I live in Lincoln and offer a private independent counselling service based here for both adults and children.
At 16 years old I went through a difficult time which led me to seek some counselling to help me overcome my troubles. The counselling I received gave me support and therapy in a safe place where I could explore and gain greater understanding of myself and why I was the way I was. I learnt skills and strategies to help me cope, change and accept these things moving forward in a healthier, positive way. It was truly life changing and I knew way back then I wanted to study myself and become a qualified counsellor.
As a counsellor I feel privileged to be able to support individuals on their own therapeutic journeys. I always work to the best of my ability and the client remains at the centre of all the work. I provide my clients with a safe, calm environment for them to discuss and reflect on their problem. I aim to give them chance to be heard and opportunity to make a change. I work in an intergrative way which means I use lots of different theories depending on the presenting issues. This way of working allows me to adapt and choose the best counselling style at that time for the individual client.
I am an approachable, empathic person. I am a good listener and non-judgemental of anything clients share.

I charge £20 for the initial assessment session and then £35 a session there after. My sessions last an hour, and I am pretty flexible with days and times and more than happy to discuss this with clients and come up with the best time for everyone.
“When I lost my Mum it was such a shock and I couldn’t really take it in… after about 7 months the grief really hit me. I was really struggling to cope with anything and everything, I knew I needed help. At this point I met Chelsey and at first I didn’t really believe that Bereavement Counselling would work for me, I couldn’t really see how I would ever cope with the death of my mum. Chelsey was extremely professional, approachable and fully explained the process to me. After weekly sessions I started to understand the grief cycle, or rather my grief cycle. I had counselling for around six months and then the appointments felt different more like I was going for a chat with a friend – it was at this point I knew my counselling journey with Chelsey had worked and I no longer needed her support (she said this would happen, we would both know when it was time for counselling to end). I would definitely recommend Chelsey, I honestly can’t thank her enough and even now I have my moments, but I understand them, because of Chelsey and the brilliant support that she gave me.”
