Lynsey Wall - Online & Face to Face Counsellor
Are you finding things difficult at the moment? Is there a part of your life that you would love to change but you don’t know how to begin? Do you feel lost, unsettled, anxious or uncertain of things because of this?
I can help you to identify and understand what’s going on, and support you to change it. I can help you to feel more in control, and more sure of where you are or where you would like to be.
I believe that it’s important to understand that not one cap fits all when it comes to finding solutions. We are all different and we respond to things in our own way. I can help you to find what works for you, and together we can identify how you are able to move forward.
I work with adults of all ages, as well as young people. I have helped people to deal with a range of difficulties including: low mood; depression; anxiety; self-esteem and low confidence. As well as isolation; bereavement; stress and relationship issues. Alongside this, I also support those who live with chronic ill health such as ME/CFS.
It’s important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor, so the first session is for 20 minutes and is free. This can help you to decide if I’m the right counsellor for you, and how you would like me to help you.

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.
