“We undertook a series of sessions with Lindy after a period of crisis in our marriage. Many years of marriage, careers and managing a family into our mid-forties somehow masked a growing rift in our relationship and it became obvious that although we deeply respected each other, we weren't together in so many ways.
With Lindy's counselling and many hours of heartfelt conversation we have navigated our relationship into a better place and although we are still working towards a better understanding of each other, without Lindy we are certain that our journey would have been even harder or may not have survived at all.
Faced with everything to lose, we would recommend a period of considered mediation with Lindy, in the hope that you, like us, can renew your relationship." Anon.
"I had the good fortune to go onto a journey of understanding myself with the competent guidance of Lindy Medway. I was 46 years old and lost emotionally after experiencing a very traumatic break up of relationship that lasted 7 years.
The journey I speak of uncovered a way of living and thinking that was completely new to me. I learned with the help of Lindy to understand myself and what made me 'tick' and most importantly that there was an alternative way to look and think about things on a different level.
She helped me to turn the negatives into positives, she helped me to come to terms with my past and allow the ugly experiences to be stored safely and quietly. With Lindy's help I was able to control negative thoughts and rise above them. This took practice but at last I had the tools and the know-how to do it.
It was a slow process but a thorough one and I will always be grateful for her guidance and enlightenment." LG
“I found Lindy because I was having unbearable stress at work, but I was not in a position to leave my job. On our first visit we immediately clicked and I was so impressed by her professionalism and ability to grasp names and understand a very complicated situation. During the course of more than 9 months, she listened, supported and advised in a most beneficial way. By the end of this episode, I had stayed the course at work, recovered my self-confidence and learned life skills from Lindy that will stay with me forever. I am grateful for the work we did together and I would not have survived this horrible experience without her insights, her clarity of thought and at every stage her constructive suggestions”. Catherine
“I worked with Lindy alongside my wife and as an individual over the course of a couple of years and honestly believe every session was worthwhile.
Lindy was very skilled at providing thought provoking insights into issues and regularly surprised me by suggesting new perspectives to challenge entrenched thoughts, memories, ideas and behaviours.
Lindy’s style is pragmatic, straight forward and measured and I would gladly recommend her services to anyone looking for an experienced and wise counsellor.” Paul
“I had counselling with Lindy at a time in my life when I was experiencing a very painful and difficult relationship. From the beginning I found Lindy to be a warm and friendly person with whom it was easy to engage. Her professional skills were of a very high standard. She was non-judgmental and listened really well to my story. She was able to provide me with good insight into my situation and she also had really good analytical skills. As a result I was able to gain a better understanding of my problems and how I came to be where I was at that point in my life. I have no hesitation in recommending Lindy as a counsellor because she is skilled, experienced, knowledgeable and yet an extremely human and warm person.” Claire
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
