About me

Counselling With Lynsey

Life can be tough at times, taking us on paths we might not understand, want, expect, or that we perhaps regret.

Whatever it is that you're struggling with, I'm here to help.

I won’t tell you what to do as I believe you know yourself best, even though you might not feel like you do!

Instead, my role will be to sit, walk, or just be, alongside you as you find your way to your own answers.

Together we can talk and explore your thoughts and feelings or consider your options, or any decisions you need to make, in order to help you move forward feeling differently about things.

My approach

I mainly work from a person-centred approach, believing you know yourself best and that ultimately you can find your own answers with the right support.

I'll also use other tools and techniques to suit you best and I also offer counselling sessions outdoors if you'd like to work in this way.

What can you expect from our sessions?

Our initial session will enable you to talk about you, what you'd like to work on and how you'd like things to be different.

This is also an opportunity for us to see if we can work together. With counselling, it's important you find someone you feel you can trust and open up to.

The number of sessions will depend on you and what you bring, but we'll review how you think things are going along the way.

Hopefully you'll reach a stage when you feel lighter and better in yourself as well as in a stronger position to be able to move forward in the direction you want.

Walking counselling & counselling with nature

As well as sessions in the more traditional setting of the counseling room, I offer walking counselling and counselling with nature sessions which might suit you if you are an outdoors person, or looking for something different.

Exercise and fresh air can help us feel better and being outdoors can sometimes be more freeing, giving a different perspective on things.

For walking sessions, we'll chose a circular route that suits you and you'll set the pace - and we can stop along the way if you want to.

In addition, or instead, we can be creative, using nature to help us talk about things. We'll incorporate the environment and space around us using the time to just be, or we'll do different activities to help explore more about you and whatever it is you want to work through.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a qualified counsellor (BACP Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling) and NLP
(neuro-linguistic programming) practitioner working with adults, young adults and children in Jersey in the Channel Islands. As well as running my own private practice, I am a secondary school counsellor.

I have many years’ experience offering emotional support to people of all ages and backgrounds with all sorts of worries and issues.

I've been a Community Bereavement Service support worker for more than seven years and I was previously a funeral director, so I'm experienced in dealing with grief and bereavement and helping people work through many different losses.

I've been a Samaritan for more than fourteen years and I'm also a Festival Samaritan, so I'm practiced in offering an empathic listening ear and giving people the opportunity to really be heard.

In addition, I am a qualified mediator, trained to help separated or divorced couples with communication, child contact and finances. As part of this role, I also work with children so their voice can be heard as well.

I also co-ordinate and deliver a children's programme with Silkworth Charity Group which helps youngsters affected by addiction.

If you have any questions, or want to find out more, please feel free to get in touch and we can talk in more detail.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
