Hi, I am Lynn and I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor based in private practice in Chilcompton since 2012 and working on-line and face to face in an outside covered and sheltered space.
It can sometimes be difficult to talk to those close to you as they often, understandably, struggle to remain impartial. Sometimes professional support is needed so that you can express yourself to someone who has no vested interest in you being any particular way and who will not be shocked, overwhelmed or judgmental about what you have to say. It can be surprising how valuable it can be to have a space where you can be helped to explore for yourself what your own responses, perceptions and feelings are and to find fresh and unimagined ways of looking at problematic emotions, inner blocks, relationship difficulties, explore depression and anxious situations.
I believe that you are your own expert and my role is to help you expand your awareness and understanding of what’s going on for you. Many people have excellent insights into their issues yet are still stuck and sometimes a powerful psychological insight can jump start them into making a move forward. My goal is to help you make the changes you want and protect what you hold dear. I also believe that negative situations can be used as a catalyst to push you forward and can even motivate you toward achieving the change you desire. Our work together will promote this movement.
Some people talk of ‘getting therapy’, seeing a psychotherapist, visiting their shrink or meeting a counsellor. However you word it, I believe that does not have to be a long drawn out process. What does ‘long term’ mean? It means that you should feel and see a change happening, we regularly review our work and process so that you can decide when you have reached your goal.
I offer a safe, confidential environment where you will can reflect on things, be encouraged to try new things and maybe take a few risks and practice the change you hope to achieve in your life.
I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their code of ethics. I also provide counselling services to various EAP (Employee Assistance Programmes).

Training, qualifications & experience
I undertook a 3 year diploma course at the Bath Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy. The course is accredited with BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their code of ethics.
I have 2 years experience of working in a college setting, working with both adult learners and adolescents. The younger clients sometimes bring developmental difficulties such as struggling with self identity, sexual identity, anxiety, low self esteem and all the challenges faced with living an more independent life. During, what could be, their first taste of living independently, I can help with family issues which can escalate during this first taste of separation.
I have also had experience of working in a local addictions agency mainly working with alcohol addiction and working within an agency which provided family care packages to families within the BANES area.
I have undertaken further studies in MBSR (Mindfulness based Stress Reduction) and MBCT (Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy), Mindfulness for Women, Anger Management, Transgender Awareness, Couples Counselling and Understanding Autism.
I hold a current DBS check.
I currently work in private practice and provide support for several EAP companies.
I offer a coaching, wellbeing and wellness service.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
