Change4me Counselling, Lindsey Woosnam, Dip (Couns) MBACP
Hi my name is Lindsey, I am an experienced registered Counsellor. I work with clients experiencing a range of emotional and mental health issues including anxiety, depression and phobias. I offer a FREE initial 10 minute consultation over the phone and will work according to your needs.
I work in the Bridgend area and have 8 years integrative counselling experience. I am MBACP registered and offer clients both short and long term counselling drawing on a range of approaches. These include: cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, transactional analysis, person centred therapy and solution focused therapy.
I have 18 years’ experience supporting clients in the statutory, third and health sectors. I have come into contact with clients with wide range of issues that cause emotional distress including bereavement and loss, divorce, chronic health issues, work-related stress and relationship difficulties.
What can I offer you?
I know how important it is to make sure you find a counsellor that is right for you. That is why I offer an initial FREE 10 minute consultation over the phone so that you can decide if we can work together.
If you decide to have counselling with me, I will arrange an initial session to talk about what brought you to counselling and what it is that you wish to achieve from it. I will work according to your needs and find an approach that works for you. Your progress will be reviewed throughout to ensure you are playing an active part in the counselling process.
