About me

About me

Hi my name is Lindsey, I am an accredited counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I work with clients experiencing a range of emotional issues including but not limited too anxiety, panic attacks, depression, post traumatic stress, phobias, domestic abuse, childhood abuse, loss and bereavement and complex family relationships. i have counselled clients directly/indirectly affected by long covid. 

I am able to support you in identifying issues that you want to address and offer an initial FREE 10 minute phone consultation so that you can decide if we can work together.

I work in the Swansea and have 14 years counselling experience. I draw on a range of approaches which include: cognitive behavioural therapy, transactional analysis, person centred therapy and solution focused therapy.

Above all, I am here to listen and act impartially to allow you the space to make the change that is right for you and achieve your own personal goals.

We are living in uncertain times and I will be able to support you with tools and techniques to help you with identifying emotions and tolerating distress.

What can I offer you?

I always offer a free 10 minute telephone conversation as I know how important it is to make sure you find a counsellor that is right for you.

If you decide to have counselling with me, we will arrange an initial session to jointly agree how best I can support you in achieving any goals you may set yourself.

I am now offering face to face, telephone and video sessions.

Client feedback

Having someone to help me put in context what I was feeling and normalising these emotions was really powerful 

"Lindsey was great to work with- I really benefited from her support" .

BACP

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.
