Linda Lynn RegMBACP, Adv Dip Counselling
I am based in Newtownabbey and offer my clients a “safe space” to explore their thoughts and feelings around issues they need help with. I can help you begin to make sense of what you are going through, enabling you to deal with issues from your past or present that may have a negative impact on your day to day life.
I began counselling in 2009 and have gained a wealth of experience, helping many clients with a wide range of issues. Anxiety, depression, grief, low self-esteem, trauma, relationships and self-harm are just a few of the issues I have helped my clients deal with. I have experience in working with a community based charity and also in a GP Practice.
As my client, I want you to feel safe, and will help you to explore and understand your thoughts and feelings, enabling you to make sense of what you are going through. This will help you begin to look forward and to make choices and set goals with increased self awareness and self esteem.
