About me

Hi my name is Lynne and I offer counselling and psychotherapy for adults and children. ​

If you are considering therapy for your yourself

Are you feeling low, anxious or struggling with anger, low self confidence or experiencing difficulties in relationships?
Do you feel like past experiences are affecting how you cope with life today?

I will listen to your concerns with understanding and compassion

I can help you to work through experiences you feel stuck with and release old feelings that you might have been holding on to - that may have been blocking your ability to reach your potential and lead a fulfilled life.

I offer talk therapy and creative therapy. If you find the idea of talking about painful life experiences daunting, creative therapy offers a way to express feelings, that might just feel too hard to say out loud. No creative expertise is necessary to experience therapy in this way. Creative therapy includes art therapy, but can also include exploring the meaning of dreams, guided visualisation, creative writing or music.

If you are considering therapy for your child

I offer play therapy. Play therapy combines the opportunity to express emotions through play and creativity, the safe relationship in which to do it freely, with the expertise of the therapist to deeply listen.
​Children naturally express their innermost desires, joys, fears, insecurities, traumas and imaginations through the symbols in play and artwork. There is no pressure to talk directly about an experience. Using the objects in the room, children are able to communicate at their own level and at their own pace.

A free Initial Session
I offer an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for you to tell me what brings you to consider therapy at this time. ​We can explore your hopes or goals for therapy, the ways that I can support you and how we might work together. This initial consultation is offered free of charge.
