Lindsey Lucking PGDip MBACP
Hello. Many of us lead demanding and difficult lives. You may be struggling to cope, feeling misunderstood or ready to work through unresolved issues.
You are taking the first step to make space to focus on your personal wellbeing.
Therapeutic Counselling to Improve Life Management
I've been a qualified Person Centred therapist for over 12 years. My work is governed by the ethical framework of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I offer a supportive, non-judgemental, non-shaming relationship to help you to make real changes in how you manage your life. My work promotes moving towards living authentically, building self-esteem and having a quieter mind.
Life’s challenges can have an ongoing impact on day to day living. Issues range from anxiety, GAD, depression, isolation, relationship/family issues, work-stress, anger, abuse, neglect, PTSD and childhood trauma.
Clients are encouraged towards a healthier mindset, adopting strategies and practical skills to move forward in a sustained, positive and self-regulating way.
It’s never too late to benefit from therapy. Counselling changes lives irrespective of age, gender, sexuality, culture and diversity.

Confidential Workplace Counselling Referrals;
Timely professional workplace intervention benefits employers and employees alike. The workplace counselling support that I offer is accessible, elective and discretionary.
My work is best suited as a primary intervention for mild to moderate presentations, disorders or conditions.
When you invest in counselling, you are giving yourself something of value.
I do not charge for the initial assessment session. We can meet for an informal chat to decide if we are the appropriate fit to work together.
Please contact me for fees, corporate rates and concessions.
Contained, safe, talking-therapy can be the most valuable thing you invest in for yourself.
Is there something preventing you from doing what you want to do or from behaving in the way that you want?
Taking the next step to speak your truth about experiences, thoughts, feelings, and deeply held beliefs can be a game changing, reviving experience.
Please contact me if you would like a conversation.
