About me

Hi.  My name is Lynn, and I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor and cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT).

I offer an integrative approach to therapy which is person-centred to your needs.  

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and have over 10 years experience working as a Mental Health Advocate . I am passionate about providing an accessible talking therapy to people in the community. I specialise in bereavement, sexual violence/rape, domestic violence, self-esteem, addiction, gambling, anger management, trauma, OCD, depression, anxiety, social phobias, self harm, eating disorders, among many others (please see below).

I offer a safe, empathic, non judgemental and confidential environment in which to share and explore whatever may be troubling you.  By offering you these essential conditions, and listening to what you are saying, I am able to gain an insight into your issues and together we can explore your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, in order to help you develop a greater understanding of yourself.

I have previously worked with It’s My Right (Rape Crisis), Scunthorpe – specialising in sexual violence/rape/domestic violence.

I have previously worked with Drug Intervention Programme, Scunthorpe – specialising in substance addiction/misuse.
