Hello and welcome, my name is Lynda and I am an experienced counsellor and am a calm, warm and understanding person. I work in private practice from safe and comfortable rooms in Verwood.
Do you suffer from Anxiety or Depression? Are you feeling stressed or finding relationships difficult? Do you have low self esteem? Have you had a Bereavement you are struggling with?
Does this resonate with you? Because if so, I can help.
I am a qualified counsellor and have experience of working with young people and adults with a wide range of issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Stress, OCD, Bereavement and Low Self Esteem.
Counselling can allow you the space to talk about your concerns and difficulties which you may be unable to share with others. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between therapist and client is the key to positive change and with this in mind I aim to offer a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental environment.
As well as my private counselling I also work with adults and young people who have experienced a loss through bereavement.
I can offer short and long term counselling in a safe confidential room in Verwood and work with adults and young people from the age of 16.
To ensure I work safely and ethically I have regular supervision and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Pyschotherapy.
You can contact me by email, telephone or text message to arrange an initial appointment. Please leave a message if I am unable to answer, and I will contact you within 24 hours.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Concessions offered for
I know that one of the issues that can put you off looking for counselling is the cost, and with this in mind I try to ensure my fees match your income and offer what concessions I can. I charge £40 per session and always offer concessions to students.
Your first session, the consultation where we meet and take some details will be of no charge.
I have early morning, daytime and evening appointments available most days.
