Lindsay Manfredi Counselling & Psychotherapy.
Hello and Welcome to my profile.
I am Lindsay, a fully qualified, experienced counsellor.
If your life is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the level of anxiety, depression or general feeling of sadness that you are carrying around, seeking support through counselling can be a positive way to deal with these issues.
Family issues, relationships, work stress and loss can all challenge the way we are living. This can bring on panic attacks, low energy and moods we are not comfortable with. This often leads to feeling overwhelmed, unable to cope and out of control.
However you are feeling, I am a counsellor who offers you a confidential, comfortable, down to earth, caring approach. Together, we can work at a pace comfortable to you to explore your thoughts and feelings, and discuss what choices and changes, may help you lead a life that feels good for you.
If you feel that now is the time for you to embark on exploring the way you are feeling, then please contact me by text, email or phone. You can be assured of a warm response.
Below are some FAQ's.
How counselling can help..
Counselling offers a professional, confidential space to share things maybe you have never shared before, with the knowledge you will not be judged and where you can be viewed unconditionally and genuinely.
Through being able to express yourself, and exploring together what is bothering you, we can make sense of your issues and learn to understand, trust and assert yourself in a way that feels right for you.
Please read the testimonial at the bottom of the page, giving a true reflection of how counselling helped.

Lindsay was recommended to me when I hit a real low point in my life. I was distraught and felt completely helpless and alone. My colleague who recommended Lindsay could not speak highly enough of the professional support that Lindsay had given her in the past and this put me at ease straight away.
I will never forget the first time that I met Lindsay. I immediately felt comfortable with her. Lindsay was welcoming, warm, caring and professional. After spending my first hour with Lindsay I knew that I needed to continue seeing her. In only a short space of time she had understood me and made me realise that I could get out of the black hole I was in. She also made me realise that this wasn’t something I should be ashamed of.
I continued to see Lindsay every week for almost a year. Throughout this period we had a variety of sessions. On some occasions we would discuss the week that I had and any situations that I had found difficult to cope with. On others we would concentrate on my childhood or major events that had happened in my life and how this had effected me. During our sessions Lindsay would explain certain theories to me and this helped me to understand why I felt the way that I did. Over time and often without realising, I learnt how to manage my thoughts, how to be kind to myself and how to be mindful.
My sessions with Lindsay were extremely important to me throughout my recovery. She helped me to stay focused, motivated me to keep going and praised me when I was doing well. Having someone as professional as Lindsay to talk to about your most personal and private thought and feelings to was what made well.
It has now been 3 months since my last session and I am now a very different person. The whole experience for me was life changing and I will always be grateful to Lindsay for helping me get to where I am now.
