Lindsay Rowe BA [Hons] PG Dip Psychotherapy UKCP reg
Hello and welcome to my profile. My name is Lindsay Rowe and I am qualified and experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist working in Knowle and Solihull, offering individual and couples therapy on a long or short term basis.Therapy is a chance for you to talk about how you feel - I will try make sense of your difficulties so that we can work together to find ways of making your life more manageable and happier. I believe that there is a link between our life experiences, our early years and what we say to ourselves and how we feel and act today - I also believe that more recent traumas may leave us unable to cope. Whatever the cause, the best thing to do is talk to someone who will not judge you and will strive to help you by understanding your world and walking through it with you. You will feel very safe. Everything we talk about is totally confidential.
I have worked in many different settings - Primary Care [GP surgery], a Bereavement agency, a Hospice, and in Private Practice - which means that I have experience in a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, phobias, low self-esteem, self-harm, suicide, bereavement, relationship problems, work-related stress etc. Sometimes there is not a particular issue - just a feeling that life is not quite right and that you just can't cope! Although I qualified in Counselling several years ago, I have recently decided to continue my training for a Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy which is helping to further develop my knowledge and ability to help you.
Please come and have a chat and we can decide between us if I am the right person to help you. My premises are in quiet and pleasant locations with plenty of room for parking and disabled access. I look forward to hearing from you.
