Linda Bramble PGdip/MBACP/EMCC Senior Practitioner
As an intuitive and qualified counsellor and mentor/coach with an interest, training and experience in emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing, I offer a space for you to reflect upon your life. I have a warm, accepting, non-judgemental personality and have had my own personal trials which led me to the counselling path. As such, I am an empathic counsellor who knows what it is like when life isn't what you'd hoped it would be with its many turns and dips in the road and what it takes to make the changes necessary for improved wellbeing and hope. Passionate about listening with attentiveness and care as you navigate the route, have choices to make and new directions to follow, I tailor my approach to help you find your individual pathway to enhance your life journey, reconcile past or present challenges and empower your future.
My approach is one of ‘there can be a way where there seems to be no way’.
I am married with two grown up children. Family is very important to me. I love walking in the countryside and beside the sea, especially at dawn or dusk and love star gazing too. I make jam (who wouldn't with a surname like Bramble) and paint pebbles for people. Currently, I am setting up a charity in support of young people and those who are involved with them and studying for a Master's degree! The best is yet to come...
If you think I can help you please contact me by which ever means works best for you. If I am unavailable, I will make contact with you as soon as I am able, usually within 24 hours.

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.
