Lowry Counselling, MBACP Registered Psychodynamic Counsellor

About me

Healing happens when we have the courage to share our story with someone who can hear it with empathy and understanding.  I look forward to hearing your story.

I provide a safe space where you can explore your feelings and issues away from your daily life.  I look to identify the root cause of an issue rather than focus on the symptoms.  This means that I can work with all kinds of issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, grief, low self esteem, divorce, eating disorders, etc.

The root cause may be hidden in unconscious beliefs we have about ourselves and others or in feelings we suppress.  I can help you unravel your thoughts and feelings to find understanding and meaning.  You will become more aware of how you relate to others.  

Psychodynamic counselling is evidence-based and supported by the latest developments in neuroscience.

I offer:

Weekly open-ended psychodynamic counselling for adults

This involves deep work looking to identify the origins of anxiety and depression. We work at your pace and you can attend for as long as you need. We will look to the past, current relationships and our relationship in the counselling room.

Weekly time-limited counselling for adults

Brief work of 8, 12 or 16 sessions to focus on one recurrent pattern of behaviour. This is particularly suited to Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs).

I offer face-to-face counselling in Purleigh, Essex, easily accessible from the Chelmsford, Maldon, South Woodham Ferrers, Billericay and Wickford areas.

I also offer telephone counselling or online counselling via Zoom.

Contact me to arrange an assessment session to see if you are happy to work with me. I understand that it may feel scary to start counselling but don't worry, it'll be ok. I will take a history and we can identify your objective for the counselling. The assessment session is 1 hour with subsequent sessions lasting 50 minutes. We will agree a day and time for counselling and this will be your regular slot.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
