Briony Lambert (Dip Couns MBACP)
Searching for a counsellor can be daunting: there are many of us, and you may not be sure what you're looking for, but feel that you need to bring some ease or explanation to aspects of your life. I work with clients from teens to senior years, exploring with them various forms of loss, anxiety, sadness, confusion and relationship difficulty. Many of my clients feel overwhelmed and want to address their coping strategies.
For me, counselling is about relationship; about listening with care, warmth and respect; about being continually curious about my clients' experience. I will commit to exploring with you whatever is distressing you, and to supporting you as you find the resources you need to bring about the changes you're seeking.
I have come to the profession of counselling via both personal and professional journeys, and I continue to practise as a speech and language therapist. My professional background enables me to work sensitively and professionally with clients experiencing a range of communication difficulties, including Autism.
