Lynda Piears - Cypselae Counselling
My Name is Lynda Piears and I am an experienced humanistic counsellor I have a private practice based in Alton and I offer daytime and evening appointments to anyone over the age of 16. It is a lovely safe space to be able to explore your problems and find a way forward. I am able to work with many issues like bereavement and loss, anxiety, suicide and depression to name a few.
As a Humanistic therapist I work with the whole person, their experiences, thoughts and feelings. I believe that by offering the right conditions of a safe, trusting, caring, respectful and honest relationship I help to create the right conditions for change and growth. I work collaboratively with my clients, working together so that one day, each client will feel able to carry-on, on their journey feeling strong, self-aware and able to manage the challenges that will come from living and being in the world. My goal with all my clients is that they will be able to leave me and live their life, which is after all, I believe, the whole purpose of therapy.
I am passionate about the positive effects that counselling can achieve. I believe that as human beings we are all seeking meaningful connections and need to feel valued. In order to achieve this we need to know ourselves, be self-aware and understand what our needs are. By talking to me I can help you to understand your feelings and thoughts so that you can make sense of yourself and your world and find a new way of being.
Through rigorous training and continued professional development I am able to offer a non-judgemental, professional, safe, respectful and confidential service. I welcome diversity and value the uniqueness of each person irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, religion, race or age. I work with people aged from 16 years old.
I am a registered member of the BACP and follow the guidelines of the ethical framework to ensure that I work in an ethical, professional and safe way. I have a private practice in Alton, Hampshire and I also work in as a volunteer for a charitable counselling agency in Guildford.
I am based at Worldham Golf Club in Alton in their dedicated therapies room, which is a lovely quiet, calm and safe space.
