Lucinda Lidstone MA UKCP reg
'Sustenance for the Soul' is a psychotherapy service that is focused on the spiritual aspects of the individual. By spritual I mean the 'non-physical' - even the most materialist of personalities has a set of beliefs about themselves, the world and others; has a meaning that they give to life; has a purpose which gets them out of bed each day. At times we can lose our way and our faith. It can be extremely troubling to find that you are questioning a belief system that you feel is no longer supporting you, particularly if you have grown up within this belief system.
If you feel stuck I can meet you in your troubles by working to understand your unique view of the world, the universe and your place in it, whatever your particular belief system or practices. I have had the privilege of working with individuals from a wide range of spiritual traditions and belief systems including; Christian (Baptist, Anglican, Methodist), Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, Jehovah's Witness, Sufi, Budhist and Pagan. My aim is to facilitate your own journey through spiritual unfoldment; I do not coerce you into any particular direction, nor do I challenge your personal set of beliefs. With you I honour and respect the sacred unfolding of life's journey, however that manifests for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked as a spiritual consultant and energy medicine practitioner since 1992. I trained in hypnotherapy in 2005 and began my training as a psychotherapist at this time. I have studied to masters level in transpersonal psychotherapy; my dissertation explored the spiritual aspects of the 'voice hearing' phenomenon.
I have worked in private practice since 2007, and also within NHS and private mental health care services. In 2010 I set up the ASC clinic a service supporting young people and their families.
I have also trained in intervention for prevention of sexual offending for potential offenders and their families.
Personally I am interested in the cutting edge of 'consciousness' science and in my private practice I work with those that wish to develop their consciousness and spiritual aspects.
My work is based on the following model of human 'being' through five areas of experience: physiological, psychological, behavioural, emotional and spiritual.
