Dr Lynne Jordan, DPsych Therapy Online in Pandemic
I am a Chartered & Registered Counselling Psychologist offering integrative counselling/ therapy, CBT, supervision and training. I have been in practice for over 35 years seeing people from a wide variety of contexts with many different ways of working.
For now all sessions are online due to the global pandemic. Face to face sessions when held are in Rustington, West Sussex near Worthing, Chichester and Littlehampton as well Haywards Heath, West Sussex. Sessions can be one-off consultations or a series of sessions via face to face, Zoom, telephone, FaceTime or Skype. Sessions are usually 60 minutes but can be negotiated for longer or shorter as required in Rustington only.
Increasingly popular are Brief Focused Therapy sessions and which are 2 hour long sessions allowing for thorough discussion and exploration in one go. These sessions are generally either one-offs with follow ups or conducted occasionally as the need arises. Please discuss your requirements and we will do what we can to tailor provision to suit your situation.
Talking therapies have become part of Western culture as a method of sorting through thoughts and feelings to do with all manner of life circumstances and challenges.

Mindfulness training and experiential practice.
Mindfulness is increasingly used in a variety of settings for help with all kinds of emotional struggles and life crises. I incorporate mindfulness principles in all my work with people as relevant.
I am registered with 2 professional bodies: the British Psychological Society and the Health Care and Professions Council.
I work with people to help them enhance their quality of life and sort through various problems and difficulties whether it be to do with relationship breakdown or other life events that cause stress and anxiety or a place to discuss existential issues and personal development and resilience issues.
I work with all kinds of human experience including traumatic incidents or periods of life and bereavement. I also work with relationships in crisis with individuals, couples and groups and particularly with traumas that are either caused by relationships or affect relationships.
Struggling with work related stress is a theme people bring to therapy. Some of the issues of concern that people are struggling with are loss of self esteem, self image, loss of direction or career path. I also find people come and talk about career options in psychology or counselling as there are many opportunities for younger and older people to develop a career in this field.
Psychologist colleagues working with Jordan Psychology also have appropriate levels of registration and consultative supervision for their practice Which acts as a kind of quality control for service provision.
Registered / Accredited
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
