Charlotte Van-Lint Registered MBACP. PGDip Integrative Psychotherapy
I specialize in helping people overcome hurts caused by emotional abuse, including narcissistic abuse, along with all types of interpersonal violence. If you struggle with addictions, anxiety, depression, and ongoing relationship struggles, it is important to find a kind and compassionate therapeutic relationship to help you recover. Whether your issues involve PTSD, complex PTSD, codependent-type relationships, relationships with personality disordered individuals, or addicts, you need help to overcome the cognitive dissonance, conditioning, and trauma that results from your involvement with these types of difficult interactions.
If you feel trapped and hopeless because of a difficult relationship or addiction problem; or if you deal with a childhood abuse or mental illness, I would love to come alongside you and help empower you to find hope, encouragement, and solutions for your challenges.
As a counselor, I believe that permanent healing from trauma requires two conditions: (1) that we experience fully and consciously our deepest emotions; and (2) that we do so in a context of safety and empathic connection.
I am committed to helping you heal from your deepest emotional wounds caused by trauma, abuse and addiction

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work holistically and believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship as a means to support individuals through their difficulties no matter how complex or challenging they may seem.
I integrate a range of methods skills and approaches to suit you and your needs, but foremost you can expect to be met as a unique individual. A good starting point is for us to decide together what you want and need from therapy.
The benefit of having two professional qualifications has enabled me to work with a wide range of issues with people of all ages and from diverse backgrounds. I have over 20 years of working with clients individually and in groups dealing with substance-related addictions, anxiety, depression, complex mental health needs, personality disorder, ingrained patterns of thinking and behaviour, anger management, domestic abuse , career development, motivational interviewing, life mapping and coaching. I am also an accredited programme facilitator in CBT.
