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 can find your own answers with the right support.

I'll also use other tools and techniques to suit you best and you can have 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, not so comfortable face to face, 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), NLP
(neuro-linguistic programming) and ARTiculate practitioner working with adults, young adults and children in Jersey in the Channel Islands.

I'm also a qualified supervisor offering supervision to counsellors and trainee counsellors and I'm a trained practitioner for disordered eating.

As well as running my own private practice, I am a secondary school counsellor and 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 many years and I'm a volunteer for Macmillan Jersey as well as previously being a funeral director, so I'm experienced in dealing with grief and bereavement and helping people work through different losses.

I'm also a Samaritan and was previously 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'm 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 deliver a therapeutic children's programme and one to one emotional support and counselling with Silkworth Charity Group which helps children and young adults affected by addiction and I also offer counselling to young adults in recovery.

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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access
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.
