About me

About me

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 generalised anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress and phobias.

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

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 19 years’ experience supporting clients in the statutory, charity 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, post natal depression, work-related stress and relationship difficulties.

I offer clients both brief and longer term counselling working closely with clients to enable them to achieve their own personal goals. My approach is flexable and I work towards your needs.

What can I offer you?

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, 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.
