About me

Hi, I’m Lindsay and I am a qualified Counsellor covering Bradford, Halifax and surrounding areas. I also offer counselling remotely anywhere in the UK or on the telephone. 

I work as a person centred counsellor which means I will be there with you to share your counselling journey and to listen to you with care, warmth and empathy. It takes strength and courage to recognise you need help and I will offer a non-judgmental, safe space for us to work through your issues together.

Finding the right therapist is important, therefore I offer a free initial telephone call which will give you the opportunity to ensure that I am the right counsellor for you.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals, which includes having regular clinical supervision and CPD.
BACP Membership number 398792

I have full insurance and I am DBS checked.

Some of the issues I deal with:

Depression                                                                                                            Anxiety                                                                                                                              Low Self-Esteem
Low Self-Confidence
Relationship issues
Childhood issues                                                                                                            Family Issues

We would usually work on weekly sessions, but this can be flexible to suit your individual needs.

Number of sessions to be agreed between us and to suit your individual circumstances. We can look at long term or short term to suit your needs and budget.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
