Linda Rose Fisher MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy, MBACP
Supervisor and Counsellor
I work with neurodiversity, brain, mental and psychic health.
Talking Therapy: I like to align mental health issues which come up for people to what is happening in the here and now. This, and moving on, are what matters and yes, of course there is a story to tell.
Therapeutic Environment: I am trained in the person-centred model of therapy. Person-centred practitioners work with the client to create a therapeutic environment. This is a space which belongs to you and I am your guest - a helpful guest - in it. It feels safe, it is confidential and is professionally contracted. It is away from all other aspects of your life so that you can truly take a breather. A time for you.
TRANSITION TIME: Are you seeking support for a current personal transition?
Transitions are prompted by life events such as a changes in a personal relationship, an ending or new career, feeling grief or loss. Maybe you’re experiencing strong feeling as a result of the end of summer and the ‘back to school’ vibe
Possibly you are facing this at present, or perhaps you suspect there is something on the horizon even if you do not know what it is yet?
I am currently offering a special rate on my autumn support programme, which sees a five week commitment between the two of us at my therapy room in Lancaster city centre. Over these five weeks we will work through the feelings and emotions you’re experiencing. The work then is to build resilience based on what you have learned about yourself.
CREATIVE CONNECTION: I am offering a five week course of counselling with the goal of finding your Muse or Genie, that spark inside you that has the potential to burn bright. Have a look at this TED Talk - link below: https://www.ted.com/talks/elizabeth_gilbert_on_genius?language=en
Although I have lived in Lancaster since 1990 I spent 5 years living and working in Vancouver returning to Lancaster in September 2011. In Vancouver I was fortunate to train in the First Nation’s Medicine Wheel. First Nations are the people who lived in North America before the European and the Medicine Wheel is a method of self-evaluation and also a way of connecting with nature, your world and your life and improving all relationships within this triad, particularly with your self.
