Lynsey Lowe, Counsellor & psychotherapist, Supervisor & Trainer
Hello, I’m Lynsey. I’m an accredited counsellor & psychotherapist working in Nottingham city. We can all face difficulties at times and counselling can help us work through them. I’ve experience of working in a specialist sexual violence service, within the NHS in a mental health setting and years of life experience on jobs as varied as law and working at the BBC!
I can offer a free telephone call prior to arranging an appointment if that would suit you, where we can discuss what your difficulties are and what you are hoping for from therapy. I am also happy to take email contacts if that feels better for you.
I am a specialist in working with trauma & specifically childhood abuse – whether that be of a sexual nature, or physical, emotional abuse or neglect. I have both experience & training in working with trauma and understand the complexity of the impact and the nature of recovery. I can and do work both short and long term but if there is significant trauma then it is likely that the therapy will need to be a minimum of 20 sessions. However, this is something we can discuss when we meet. No-one need attend for any more sessions than they feel is appropriate.
I offer therapy in a compassionate, caring and client-focused way. I work with people to help them gain understanding and to find more helpful and considered ways to manage their difficulties. There is no magic wand in therapy – it does take hard work but I will be that compassionate ally as you work through things.
I have worked with individuals or groups experiencing difficulties for over 14 years. I'm experienced in working with anxiety, depression, abuse, and relationship problems. Please feel free to contact me to find out if I can help with your particular problem or difficulty.
People consider therapy for all sorts of reasons. You might be in crisis and feel you've got to "do something". You may have been aware for a long time that there's something you need to look at. Perhaps you're depressed, lacking energy or just feeling that life just feels as if there’s something missing, that there's not much pleasure or joy?
It can feel daunting to find a therapist. Firstly you’ve made the decision to try counselling and then you begin the journey of finding the right counsellor for you. Research indicates that a good relationship with your counsellor is the most important aspect of therapy. So it’s important you look for someone you think you can work with and feel comfortable with.
I work with individuals and couples. I also provide supervision for therapists, either individually or groups. I've experience working with relationship difficulties, abuse, anger, trauma, anxiety and depression. Please do get in touch and we can explore together whether counselling is the right way forward for you.
I offer a professional but friendly service in a confidential environment in which you can explore your difficulties. I provide counselling with an emphasis on supporting you to a greater understanding of yourself and your problems and enabling you to find solutions and ways to cope.
We all have times in our lives when we are struggling to cope with something; anxiety, depression, relationship issues or work problems. The range of difficulties people come to see me about are as varied as the people I’ve worked with. No problem is too big, nor too small. If it is impacting on your ability to enjoy life, then it's worth spending time to try and change it.
If you need help with anger, feeling low or depressed, anxiety, work-related stress, a difficult or challenging relationship, help with addictions, affairs or help to manage stress then get in touch and we can arrange an initial appointment.
