Lenka Cassidy MBACP (Reg) FdA Couns. BA (Hons)
Hello and a warm welcome to my profile. I am a BACP Registered counsellor offering in-person, online and telephone counselling for couples, adults and young people (16+) from locations in Romsey and Eastleigh. Please contact me for a free initial 20 minute consultation.
I am experienced in dealing with a wide range of issues, including stress and anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, panic attacks, self-harm, work-related problems, relationship and family difficulties, loss and bereavement, abuse and traumatic experiences. I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your individual needs and circumstances, and work at a pace that feels right for you.
How can counselling help?
People come to counselling for many different reasons. Some may need help to deal with specific mental health issues, self-defeating behaviours, relationship problems, or significant life changes. Others may be struggling with general feelings of dissatisfaction, inner conflicts, or a lack of fulfilment or direction.
Counselling provides you with a confidential, safe space in which to clarify, process and resolve any such difficulties. Additional benefits include developing a deeper sense of self-understanding, as well as higher levels of optimism and of inner strength.
Please take a look through my website www.greenlotuscounselling.co.uk for more details.

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.
