About me

Hello, my name is Lynda and I am the counsellor within “Beingwell”, a holistic wellbeing centre in Dundee.  Counselling can benefit everyone and aims to address people's life problems in a safe environment where you will be listened to without fear of criticism or judgement. I work with both individuals and couples and our relationship is important to me and I would want to work in a flexible and collaborative way to ensure that you feel comfortable and empowered in our sessions together.

I am a pluralistic counsellor which means that I believe that different approaches to counselling work for different people at different points of time. I can offer short- or long-term counselling and we will decide together what is right for you.

My experiences have taught me compassion, how to listen empathically and to be supportive without judgement.

Individual counselling.

I can work with Depression, Anxiety, Disordered eating, Relationship problems, People affected by Adoption, Self-esteem, Stress, Bereavement, Infertility, Life transitions, Parenting, Self-harm, ADHD and Autism amongst other issues that life throws at us.

Couples counselling

Relationships can be complex and few relationships exist conflict free. Whether you feel you are growing apart, stopped communicating or trust has been broken through betrayal or an affair couples counselling can be an effective form of talking therapy designed to resolve issues within an intimate relationship. My role is to facilitate change and bring about a resolution by helping you both to communicate  and reconnect. 

If you would like to book an appointment with me you can come along for an initial meeting that takes about 30 minutes where we can talk together about ways that I may be able to help and support you as an individual or as a couple. Each session from there on will last for 1 hour.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a postgraduate diploma in counselling obtained at Abertay University in 2018. I have 4 years experience counselling students in a University setting.

I have also undertaken my training in Couples counselling.

I was  a social worker with over20 years experience of working with families and have specialised in the area of adoption work since 2007.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
