About me

Hi, I’m Lindsey. I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist, and I am also a lecturer in Counselling. I work in an integrative way, which means that I can draw from different models of therapy, such as Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and CBT, depending on your unique needs and wishes. I am dedicated to using an individually tailored approach for each client, which can have a positive impact on a person’s counselling experience and increase the chance of beneficial effects. 

I offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental space to help you explore any issues you may have, be they current or past. Whatever it is you are facing, I can offer professional and emotional support and help you through difficult times. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am proficient in the treatment of a wide range of issues that could manifest as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, panic attacks, stress etc. I have a particular depth of experience working with emotional issues that are caused by domestic abuse. I am fully insured and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have an enhanced DBS certificate.

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.

Key details

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
