Hello, my name is Cheryl Taylor, and I am an experienced counsellor working with adults and young people, in the Lincoln area.
I offer short and long term counselling to people from all walks of life. I work with adults and young people (age 12+), and practice from a comfortable and accessible consulting room based in Scampton, 5 miles north of Lincoln.
I also offer Clinical Supervision to counsellors, in training and qualified, as well as other professionals.
Person Centred counselling embodies the qualities of empathy, honesty and absolute respect towards clients. I hugely value the uniqueness of all humans, and hope to foster a grounded sense of what it means to be human in our own very individual ways.
I believe that the relationship between the client and counsellor is the most important aspect of our work. Together, we will harness an exploratory environment where we can seek, and give value to, your authentic process and the ‘real’ that is you. I will seek to gain your perspective, and to be there with you, accepting whatever arises in your own valid experience.
I welcome whatever the client wishes to bring to sessions and offer a space for us to work together to bring real change to your life.

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.
