Lynsey Lowe, Counsellor & psychotherapist, Supervisor & Trainer
Hello, I’m Lynsey. I’m an experienced counsellor & psychotherapist based in Nottingham, close to the city centre.
We are in strange & challenging times....
I am no longer seeing clients or supervisees face to face but via Zoom, VSee or telephone.
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?
You may have a specific ‘issue’ you want to work through – for instance, anger problems, depression, anxiety, a bereavement or relationship difficulty. Please feel free to contact me to find out if I can help with your particular problem or difficulty.
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.
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 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 can provide both short and long term therapy. We will discuss your needs at the initial therapy session and come to an agreement about what is best for you. 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 trained initially at the University of Nottingham as a Humanistic Therapist and have subsequently gained experience in a variety of different specialist areas and therapy models. I am accredited with BACP, the main therapist governing body.
I work with individuals and couples. I also provide supervision for therapists, either individually or groups.
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.
