Briony Lambert (Dip Couns MBACP)
The Lodge Practice
9a High Street
I offer brief and long-term one-to-one counselling sessions for adults and young people, working closely with my clients to identify the challenges they face, and supporting them in bringing about the changes they want for themselves. Through a series of conversations that are safe and respectful, I commit to listening with care, warmth and curiosity, sharing each individual's experience, and working with them to realise their own desired outcomes.
I draw upon the core models of my training and practice - Person Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis - and blend these approaches according to the needs of each individual. I like to work creatively. I value and am fascinated by the differences between us all, and so, in counselling, there is no 'one size fits all' approach. Beyond and through methodology, though, the guiding principle of my work lies in the quality of the therapeutic relationship forged between myself and each individual.
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.
