Lynette Ashdown MBACP (Accred)
My name is Lynette and I am an integrative counsellor and EMDR Therapist. I am Accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the National Counselling Society. Integrative counselling means I use a range of methods from different approaches so that I can tailor therapy to your individual needs and I work holistically to heal your mind, body and soul.
As an EMDR Therapist I am able to offer a specialist trauma therapy that is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
I offer counselling to adults, couples and young people in a safe therapeutic space.
I can help you with a wide range of life difficulties. Together we can explore the issues that are troubling you whether these stem from your past, the present or your fears and anxieties about your future. I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space that will help us develop a unique therapeutic relationship that brings insight, understanding and acceptance and will help heal your pain.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of coming to counselling or just unsure please contact me and we can have a chat about what to expect and how counselling works.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
