Lindsey Light- MA, PG Dip, Sup Dip, MBACP
I am an experienced Integrative counsellor and over the past several years, have been working in various organizations in London and Sussex, as well as running my own private practice. I am now based in the West country working remotely and am able to work with clients from all over the country. Prior to qualifying as a counsellor and a supervisor, my background was in art and music. Having a broad life experience helps me to have good rapport with all sorts of people from many walks of life. My passion is helping people on their life's journey and I find working with clients and seeing them change and grow is a true privilege.
In these remarkable and uncertain times, it is more important than ever to draw on our own inner resources. If life is challenging your sense of balance and stability I can help. I have good results particularly working with clients who have been suffering with anxiety and depression or experiences of low self worth or low esteem. We will work together to discover the source of your difficulties, what ever they may be. You could be feeling fearful, panicked, stressed, angry, sad or lonely, or have addictions that you would like to address. How ever you are feeling and what ever you bring, we can consider what may or may not be working for you. Together we will explore the root causes of your issues, which will increase your awareness and enable you to make more satisfying life choices and allow you to live more freely.
Having counselling will help you find new perspectives, so that you will feel more resilient and better equipped to deal with all of life's challenges. Your relationships, work and home life will improve. By finding out what makes you tic, you will increase your understanding of your thoughts, behaviours and feelings, so that you can see the road ahead more clearly and live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Feel free to contact me for an informal initial consultation at no charge. We can work on Zoom, Whatsapp or on the phone, at a time that suits you. You may only want a couple of sessions to get you through a difficult patch or crises, or decide that you would like continued support to tackle more deep seated issues.

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.
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).

At this especially difficult time, you may just want to connect with someone who can offer a listening ear.

Feel free to be in touch if you would like to have a couple of sessions and not feel obligated to continue longer term.
