MBACP PG, Dip. - Experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor

About me

Hi, I'm Linda, and I am an experienced holistic and integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor. During the last 15 years, I have been helping adults, children, couples and families to overcome many challenges including, anxiety, depression, issues within relationships with partners, family members and children, abuse, trauma and suicidal thoughts.

Using a wide range of psychological approaches I am able to help and support my clients as they heal and work through their underlying issues. Many of my clients have come to me because their anxiety has left them feeling stuck and unable to move forward. Many have felt angry about various areas of their lives and I offer them a safe and trusting environment where clients feel heard and valued.

I am also passionate about supporting those whose lives have been affected by cancer. Fifteen years ago, I lost my twin brother to cancer, within a month I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I felt so overwhelmed. It was a dark time but eventually I went for counselling and in time began to heal emotionally, mentally and physically. I understand what it’s like to be sitting on the other side. Just like you I have experienced challenges and through counselling I learnt that there is another way.

So, if you are looking for a fellow traveller who understands the journey of self-awareness and recovery, to help you to make mental, emotional and lifestyle changes, then please feel free to contact me. You can call me on 07875 213860 or click here to send me an email.

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.
