About me

WELCOME...

Do you feel like everyday life is stressful and a struggle that seems never ending? 

At times life can feel overwhelming, are you struggling with low confidence, low self esteem, anxiety, depression, shame, divorce and separation. Are your relationships with loved ones and friends strained and difficult. Do you experience anger and frustration but you don't know why?  Work stress and pressure is getting you down, Traumatising childhood events and experiences like emotional, sexual and physical abuse can leave you feeling scared, alone, vulnerable and isolated along with domestic violence, a sudden illness or disability. Life feels out of control, unmanageable and too much to cope with. Does this sound familiar ? Do you need my help ?

When we experience any of the above they leave us with limiting beliefs that can get in the way0-0*-0 and prevent us living our life to our full potential. I can help and provide you with ways to manage and reduce how you feel, creating a deeper relationship with yourself where you will find the answers to why you feel the way you do.  Using my knowledge of psychology/counselling and belief coding we can work on the discomforts, limiting beliefs and trapped emotions clearing them FOREVER so you can find the real you again.

HOW I CAN HELP YOU

I am a down to earth person who is caring and passionate about helping people just like you to find understanding why you feel the way you do. I work in a warm, trustworthy, respectful and non-judgmental way as I believe you are the only expert of your own life. I can offer you a safe, comfortable and confidential space in my therapy cabin where you will be listened to without criticism or judgement.

I can help you increase your own self-awareness and knowledge to manage your thinking, emotions and feelings so that you can start living a life in the best way for YOU. So you can live a life that feels in alignment with the TRUE YOU and not the person that everyone around you expects or says who you should be. Together we will find understanding to your possible fears, anxieties, worries and default patterns of thinking and behaving that are holding you back from feeling content, having healthy relationships, or being successful.

During our sessions we can explore ways for you to move forward that you feel are right for you. I can also help you to rediscover and strengthen your own values and beliefs along with your inner resources increasing your self esteem, confidence and establishing a stronger sense of self. I will work at a pace that suits you offering short or long term counselling encouraging and supporting you in any aspect of your life that you seek answers to and would like increased knowledge of.

I feel my role as a counsellor is to help you raise your own self-awareness and knowledge leaving you feeling encouraged, empowered and supported to make different choices and changes in your life.

WHY I BECAME A COUNSELLOR

I understand how you might be feeling, you are not alone, I have been on my own counselling journey of personal discovery which empowered me to make my own choices and enabled me to be in control of the changes that I wanted to see in my own life. My new found belief in the therapeutic process motivated me to train as a counsellor. This learning along with my own journey showed me that we all have an innate ability to know what is best for ourselves, we just may need some extra help in finding it.

"Growth is painful, Change is painful, But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong."

MY SPECIALISM

Mental Health Conditions

Working at the mental health charity MIND for many years I gained experience and knowledge seeing clients who had a variety of Mental Health Conditions. I specialise in working with people who are struggling with the following :- Anxiety, Depression, ASD, and those who have suffered from and continue to suffer with various aspects of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) Trauma, Memory Flashbacks/Nightmares and Sexual, Physical, Emotional Abuse also those who are experiencing feelings of anger and worthlessness; lacking in self-esteem, confidence and feeling overwhelmed.

Inner Child Therapy :- Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be ? Do you find yourself behaving and reacting like a child but you can not understand why ? All of us carry around an "Inner Child" as a child we have basic needs of love, safety, trust, respect and guidance. If those basic human needs go unfulfilled our Inner Child may experience fear, anxiety, shame, anger, rejection and neglect, they are at high risk of developing abusive behaviour towards self and others, creating problems in all areas of life.

BELIEF CODING:-

Belief Coding ®️ is both a science and spiritual backed healing modality that works by changing your limiting beliefs at a subconscious level. 

The various healing modalities that make up Belief Coding are Emotion Code, Kinesiology, CBT,NLP,EFT, Matrix re-imprinting, Positive Psychology, Energy Healing. These modalities are incredibly powerful and effective in clearing limiting beliefs at the root cause by reshaping the memories that are attached to the trauma or life experience then coding in new beliefs. Belief Coding can be used for anything ie Anxiety, Depression, Fears, Phobias, Grief, Pain and much more.

How are limiting beliefs formed :- They can be formed from early childhood, your experiences, environment, influences of people around you, and even from ourselves. They are false assumptions that restrict us in some way, preventing us achieving our full potential and living the life we want.

TESTIMONIALS 

I would like to say a special thank you to all those kind enough to share their experiences. It was a pleasure and privilege working with you.

BELIEF CODING SESSION 

I recently had the pleasure of having a belief coding session off Lynne and what else can I say, but wow! She was so professional throughout and soon got to the root of my discomfort (which was different to what I initially thought it was). She held space for me and bought in some lovely tools0-0 to help me heal, as I dealt with the emotions that surfaced and really encouraged me to push on with my new beliefs at the coding in section. I highly recommend a session with her. Thank you so much! 

Claire.

I really connected with Lynne. A wonderful professional, knowledgeable, patient, understanding person. In the past, I had attempted counselling and it was awful. It really put me off; so, when I meet Lynne, it was refreshing and I suppose it was a massive relieve for me.
Working on you is not easy, however; there was a safe place for me to express my feelings, actually really open up, explore who I was, embrace who I am and learn to think differently about issues in my life. Lynne is a realist, flexible, she will help you understand things, things you never thought of. As hard as it can be, she will guide through at your own pace
I walked into my first session broken, feeling worthless, confused, angry and lost. I walked out confident, happy, stronger and I knew I was worth it. No longer broken. I can't thank you enough and I will highly recommend your services.
****************************************************************
The journey has gone beyond words and my self acceptance and belief as flourished. Your true authenticity, caring nature, inspiring warmth and vast knowledge have moved me through some of the most challenging times and given me a tool kit to continue to develop. My endless thanks I offer you for a precious gift that you gave to me, a safe and held space that was second to none.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Full Description of the following therapeutic techniques I use:-

Belief Coding:  Is a method that taps into your subconscious mind to understand where certain thoughts, feelings and beliefs come from It enables us in a simple and effective way to safely change self-limiting beliefs that do not serve us. Belief Coding uses principles of positive psychology, NLP,CBT,EFT, Meditation, Matrix re-imprinting, Emotion Code, Kinesiology and energy healing work. You can use Belief Coding on absolutely anything ie  Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Trauma, Phobias, Addictions. Our belief system shapes who we are and how we respond to the world around us. Whilst some beliefs motivate us to take action, others serve as roadblocks preventing us from achieving our goals and living the life we truly deserve to live free from limitations.

Psychodynamic :- This encourages the client to open up and explore unresolved issues and conflict hidden in their unconscious and predominately from their past that are affecting their mood and behaviourin the here and now

Solution Focused :- It works by helping clients solve problems without tackling them directly, explore links to the past experiences and times when they were as happy as they see themselves in their future vision. These processes aim to evoke a sense of hope, clear realistic goals and expectations to make a future solution seem possible

Transactional Analysis :- Transactional analysis is a talking therapy. Sessions are designed to explore an individual's personality and how this has been shaped by experience - particularly those stemming from childhood. I recognise that we all have the potential to live the life we want, rather than the life we are programmed to live. Sometimes however this potential is hindered by repetitive patterns or 'unconscious scripts' that have been formed in our past

Gestalt :- Gestalt therapy is a humanistic therapy technique that focuses on gaining an awareness of emotions and behaviours in the present rather than in the past. The therapist and client work together to help the client understand him/herself. This type of therapy focuses on experiencing the present situation rather than talking about what occurred in the past. Clients are encouraged to become aware of immediate needs, meet them, and let them recede into the background. The well-adjusted person is seen as someone who has a constant flow of needs and is able to satisfy those needs

CBT :- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You're shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.
