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. 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.
I can work with Depression, Anxiety, Disordered eating, Relationship problems, People affected by Adoption, Self-esteem, Stress, Bereavement, Infertility, Life transitions, Parenting, Self-harm, amongst other issues that life throws at us.
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. 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 was also a social worker with over20 years experience of working with families and have specialised in the area of adoption work since 2007.
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

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).
