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.
Having five years experience in the voluntary sector, I have worked privately for a number of years with a variety of clients and have assisted them in dealing with sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, grief, bereavement, family troubles etc.
I am also a fully trained bereavement volunteer with CRUSE bereavement care and also fully trained in couples counselling.
I provide a safe environment and offer respect and confidentiality, where clients can freely explore and express their fears and concerns.
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 Coleraine and can be contacted by mobile 07511 372787.

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.
