Hello, my name is Lindsay and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor based in Widnes.
Being an Integrative Counsellor, I have knowledge of a number of different counselling styles and theories of which I can draw upon during our sessions, working with you to tailor a counselling style best suited for you. Some of the theories I use are: Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Transactional Analysis (TA), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Gestalt.
I offer open ended therapy, which means you can see me short term or long term, based on your individual needs.
My counselling space offers a safe and secure setting in which you can explore your feelings and thoughts without the fear of judgement and opinions. I will offer you a genuine and open therapeutic relationship where we can work together on you becoming the person you want to be.
Counselling is a unique and personal experience that you are in control of, you need to be completely comfortable and happy with your counsellor in order to gain the most from your sessions, therefore I offer a free 20 minute consultation via the telephone to answer any questions you may have and for you to decide if I am the counsellor for you.
Thank you for reading my profile.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
