Lynn Michaels MBACP (Snr Accred)
I have 30 years experience as a qualified counsellor, having worked in both the NHS and private practice. I see individuals and couples for both short term and long term counselling. My approach is eclectic and I adapt my style of counselling to meet individual needs.
Our initial telephone conversation will enable us to understand what you may be looking for in counselling. I will then offer you an appointment to have our first meeting. This session is for us to assess and explore how we can work together; if not, then to guide you to an alternative form of support.
ALL CONSULTATIONS ARE CONFIDENTIAL.
The sessions will last 50 minutes. These are usually weekly sessions but can be flexible to suit individual needs. Daytime and evening appointments are available. All sessions take place in a quiet and private consulting room with a private entrance, waiting room and ample free street parking.
