About me

Providing Home visit Counselling in Lincoln and the surrounding area and Online Counselling for the rest of the UK.

I offer Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills Counselling (DBT), individually or online.  

DBT Skills Counselling sessions can provide you with:

  • Effective Coping Mechanisms: DBT skills equip you with practical techniques to manage overwhelming emotions, reducing distress and improving your ability to cope with life's challenges.
  • Enhanced Emotional Regulation: By learning DBT skills, you can gain better control over intense emotions, helping you to navigate difficult situations with greater stability and composure.
  • Improved Interpersonal Relationships: DBT focuses on interpersonal effectiveness, teaching skills that can enhance communication, assertiveness, and conflict resolution, leading to healthier and more fulfilling relationships.
  • Core Mindfulness Practice: DBT emphasises core mindfulness techniques, which can help you become more present in the moment, reduce anxiety, and cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness.
  • Reduced Self-Destructive Behaviours: DBT offers strategies to address harmful behaviours and impulsive actions, promoting healthier coping mechanisms and self-care practices.
  • Empowerment and Self-Validation: DBT encourages self-compassion and validation, helping you develop a stronger sense of self-worth and empowerment, which are essential for personal growth and resilience.
  • Long-Term Emotional Stability: By consistently practising DBT skills, you can build resilience and develop a toolkit for managing emotions effectively, fostering long-term emotional stability and well-being.

In our sessions I will guide you through the techniques and skills of DBT at your own pace and check that you are getting the benefit from them that you want to achieve.

Now in my 30th year of counselling I have previously worked in NHS Mental Health and Addiction Services, DBT Teams, Management and Counsellor Supervision, Voluntary Organisations and Private Practice.

I deliver a professional, friendly and trustworthy service. Please contact me or visit my website for further information.
