About me

My Name is Lynn Pritchard and my background is as a Palliative Care Specialist Nurse. Throughout my many years in nursing I have encountered differing emotional problems alongside the physical problems my patients/clients have had to endure. I decided that alongside my advanced communication skills i would undertake a specific Counselling Diploma so that I could counsel a wider community other than that of counselling patients. My counselling has led me to develop expertise in bereavement counselling, and also in children and young people counselling.

How can I help you?

The aim of my therapeutic work is to support you in:

  • fully understanding what your current issues are,
  • identifying what you would like instead and planning how to make this happen,
  • making the changes,
  • living a happier and more fulfilled life.

What is my role ?

My role is to build a therapeutic relationship and to offer you a confidential, warm and safe environment where you are able to talk openly and freely.

What is my aim ?

My aim is to help you increase your potential, make better choices and find meaning and purpose within your life. You can learn how to manage negative and distressful thought patterns and behaviours.
I provide a professional, confidential service that fits your needs and enables you to be able to talk openly in a relaxed and confidential environment.

What will I provide for you?

I will provide a non-judgmental, pressure free space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and begin to make sense of your world. You can develop a clearer understanding of who you are and find a resolve to your internal conflict and live a more resourceful life.

I'm here to help you explore, understand and manage your difficulties so that you can begin to feel a greater sense of well-being.
Each one of us has the resources within ourselves to cope and to bring about change.
I offer encouragement and support throughout this process. I will be working with you and helping you to identify with yourself once again.

If we stop and think about our own thoughts and feelings we can see that they are ever changing as we constantly change and grow.
I employ various counselling approaches that enables me to work eclectically with each person moment by moment.

I have worked within the Third Sector since qualifying as a counsellor eg schools, GP's surgeries and in private practice.

The training and experience I have gained has given me knowledge and an understanding integrated range of theories, techniques and applications such as C.B.T. However the Humanisitc model of Counselling underpins my work.

Best Wishes,
Lynn.
