Linda Jane White
My name is Linda.
How are YOU?
It's been a tough year for everyone. In one way or another Covid 19 has affected us, our family, or somebody we know. Through this time, we have perhaps experienced thoughts and feelings which have been difficult to process.
The mental and emotional health of the whole family is so important. However big or small, issues might affect us, as an individual, couple, or family.
At some point in our lives, we will experience issues that we find difficult to comprehend. Bereavement, Relationship troubles, Anxiety, Depression, Lack of Self Worth, Communication Difficulties - Whatever our age, whatever our issue, we can feel, Grief, Loss, Isolation, and the feeling of being Alone.
We can think that the world is against us and it can feel like a very Lonely Place. These feelings and emotions will affect our every day lives, our relationships with friends and family and in the work place. You will not be alone, because together, with my support, I will help you find your way again. Irrational thinking will be substituted with Rational thinking. The sun will start to shine in your life again.
I do believe, that you have made the first step in acknowledging you may have issues in your life, by approaching this website. Now you have made this first step, you can take future steps with my help and support. It is difficult sometimes to share your problems with your family and friends, and this is where I can assist.
I am able to offer a safe and confidential place for you to explore your feelings and emotions. I hope with my support, you will be able to process what issues you have, with yourself and /or others, and begin to make changes to how you perceive the world in general.
I think that the Therapeutic relationship between Counsellor and Client is so important. - For a client to have a voice, to be listened to, and to be heard, and, understood is vital.
I am able to offer Counselling to Young People, Individuals, Couples, and Families.
For people who find it difficult to travel, for whatever reason, I am able to offer Home Visits within a radius of St Clears.
As well as face-to-face sessions, I am able to provide Skype, telephone or FaceTime Sessions.
Alternatively if you are a Company looking for support for any of your employees, I can come to your work place.
Subject to school authorization, I may be able to see your child in school.
Please contact me to discuss.

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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
