Lyn O'Callaghan, BA (Hons), Ad. Dip. Psyc, MNCS (Accred)
I believe all difficulties we experience with regard to our mental health are episodes and not a way of life. I see my role as a counsellor being to help you to develop and build resilience, self-confidence and self-esteem, so you can master the art of living without living being a burden.
I use Person-Centered therapy techniques, as well as incorporate other approaches, such as hypnotherapy, CBT, mindfulness, and journaling, to ensure a truly tailored counselling experience for my client.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Chrysalis trained counsellor and have completed the AIM Awards Level 3 in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills, AIM Awards Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and BA (Hons) in Childhood & Youth Studies. I have over 25 years’ experience of working with children 0-18 years, parents and adult individuals.

Home visits are available for all initial assessments for child clients (under 16), those who are housebound due to medical or mental disability or the elderly.
Any further home visits will be discussed during the initial assessment, although, most clients will be encouraged to attend my office to ensure a space where clients are able to speak freely and away from family members to protect the confidentiality of the sessions.
