About me

My name is Lynette and I am an integrative counsellor and EMDR Therapist working on line and face to face. I am a Senior Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society. As an Integrative counsellor I use a range of methods from different approaches so that I can tailor therapy to your individual needs. 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 can help you with a wide range of life difficulties including anxiety, depression and trauma. 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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.
