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 generalised anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress, phobias, domestic abuse, childhood abuse, loss and bereavement and relationship difficulties.

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 Bridgend and have 10 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.

I have 19 years’ experience supporting clients in the statutory, charity and health sectors and believe this has aided me in my counselling approach.

I offer clients both brief and longer term counselling working closely with clients to enable them to achieve their own personal goals.

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, 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.
