About me

I am Linda Hallam Bailey, one of two counsellors who work for Sunnybank Counselling, a private practice based in Brixworth, Northamptonshire. This rural location is quiet, secluded and private.

My counselling experience has involved working with those facing relationship difficulties and a range of mental health issues. I have worked with children aged 5-17 and young adults of 18+ both as a teacher and a counsellor.

I recognise that anyone can struggle at any time in their life and may benefit from being heard. My aim is to enable you to learn to help yourself in a confidential and caring environment. You will not be judged, but will be shown empathy and respect. I will help you to realise that you are the most important person in your life.

Although I can help with a range of issues, I have specific experience in helping clients address stress, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, domestic abuse, depression, anxiety and loss, (whether through bereavement or divorce). However, it's what matters to you that's important but no issue is too great or too small.

I am a creative person who believes that sometimes we can neglect our whole selves by not listening to our mind and body and their connectedness. I believe that by getting in touch with the 'felt self', through creative expression or talking about our feelings, or both, we can gradually learn to know who we really are. This is especially important when we face the personal challenges that we all experience at some point in our lives.

You will find further information on our website and if you would like to contact me I can be reached on my mobile or via email.
