About me

My name is Lindsey - thank you for taking time to read through my profile while you're making this important decision of "who do I pick?"....

Trying to cope with a major life, situation or issue event can leave us feeling emotionally overwhelmed which can cause low mood, sleep loss or disturbence, change in our appetite, a lack of patience and increased irritability, raised stress levels, low self-esteem, a sense of loss of control...even anxiety and panic, self harm and suicidal thoughts.

Sometimes we can end up running into the same issues, feelings and situations in our lives again and again leaving us feeling stuck in a pattern of behaviour which is impacting on us, our relationships, work and home life. It is possible to 'feel' stuck in grief or trauma, for experiences that happened in the past to have an impact on us in the present without us realising, to feel 'out of synch' with those around us and the world we live in as we struggle to make any sense of what is going on for us.

If you feel that you cannot cope on your own any longer then counselling can help you to explore your current situation and feelings - gain understanding and be more able to 'see' your choices and options to give you back your sense of balance, power, enjoyment and hope. You can learn new coping strategies and techniques - free yourself of negative thought and behaviour cycles - learn how to set yourself realistic and acheiveable life goals - gain confidence and self-esteem.

I don't believe in a 'one size fits all' approach to therapy. I believe that every client is a unique individual, with unique issues and challenges in their lives, unique life experiences and as a result of this my approach to working with a client acknowledges this need for  each and every clients expectations and goals for their therapy and it's outcomes will be different. I am qualified in several types of therapeutic models and I select and combine tools, techniques, coping strategies and approaches in an informed way to offer my best practise for each of my clients.

As a fully qualified trauma-informed counsellor I am a Registrered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This means that I have acheived the standard of qualification and experience requireed by the BACP to use the title 'Registered'.

I work with clients of all ages and genders who bring a wide range of issues such as: grief & loss, anxiety, low mood & depression, self-harm & suicide,  trauma & abuse (historical & current), OCD & phobias, mood disorders, low self esteem & confidence issues, family & relationships issues such as divorce & seperation, changing unhealthy behaviours/habits, challenging negative thoughts, identifying life goals, everyday life issues and more.

I am able to offer a choice of times and days (including Saturday morning if required) and also a choice of 3 counselling  room location (Cleveleys, Blackpool & St. Annes on Sea) which are all private, safe and comfortable with full facilities as well as easy street parking access and close to public transport services.

I also offer a FREE NO OBLIGATION 30 minute telephone consultation for  new clients.

All information shared will be treated with me with respect and confirdentiality. If there is information that I am ethically bound over to break confidentiality for and disclose. These situations are: when a client discloses to me they are intending on causing serious harm to themselves or others; disclosing knowledge of a vulnerable adult or child in danger of abuse or harm; disclosing an intention to commit a crime.

Whatever your circumstances may be, I will provide a supportive and confidential conselling relationship within which you will feel fully supported and able to explore whatever issues you choose to bring to our sessions.

PLEASE LOOK BELOW at the gallery to find photos of the therapy rooms. All rooms are comfortable, quiet, clean and private spaces.
