Hi I'm Lynsey. Firstly, thank you for taking the first step in checking out the website and viewing my profile.
Counselling provides the opportunity to have a qualified therapist, assist and support you through difficult times.
I am a fully trained and qualified Professional Integrative Counsellor, having studied Humanistic, CBT and Psychodynamics. I use these therapies from an integrative perspective and adapt them to best suit your needs.
After gaining experience in the voluntary sector, I have worked privately for the past number of years, supporting NHS clients as well as a variety of private clients, assisting them in dealing with low mood, sexual abuse, anxiety, work related issues (HR experience), depression, grief, bereavement (training completed by CRUSE bereavement care), family and marital troubles, etc.
I also offer support to teens and young people and have experience of working in schools and EOTAS. I can also provide support to couples and families who have disagreements and need guidance to reaching an agreement.
I provide a safe environment and offer respect and confidentiality, where clients can freely explore and express their fears and concerns.
I am a wife, mum, daughter and I understand how life can get on top of us. In these busy and unprecedented times, we can get stressed by trying to cope, or feel overwhelmed and down when we can't cope. I'm here to support - not to judge. Please remember, it OK not be OK - it's good to talk.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I work by following their Code of Ethics, with the wellbeing of my client being priority.
I have a private practice in the Knocklynn area of Coleraine and can be contacted by mobile 07511 372787 or email me firstname.lastname@example.org.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
