Pamela Fletcher MBACP

Hello, my name is Pamela. If you are feeling sad, distressed or confused and want to change how you see everything right now, I can offer you a safe, confidential environment in which to talk about you and your feelings. I will support you through your difficulties, help you achieve clarity and take those first steps forward towards making the changes you choose to make and discover the life that you want.
My private practice is based in Waddington which is approximately 5 miles outside Lincoln and on a main bus route. I can offer you a warm and friendly welcome and an atmosphere in which you can talk about your problems without being judged. I have helped people suffering with depression, anxiety, relationship problems , low self esteem, childhood and child related issues,bereavement, obsessive compulsive disorder, work related problems, self harm,anger management difficulties and stress.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within it's ethical framework.
Sessions usually last for 1 hour and at our first meeting you can decide if you would like to continue to work together. We will discuss the number of sessions we believe will be appropriate to help you, and we will regularly review how you are feeling (This is typically around 6 sessions but maybe less or more). You of course are free to end counselling at any time you wish.
If you feel that you would like to arrange a session or require any further information please give me a ring or send me an e mail.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Not everyone who seeks counselling has a specific problem or area of critical concern, sometimes we can't put our finger on what is troubling us but things just don't feel right. It takes great courage to take the first step and talk to someone about things.Counselling maybe able to help you make sense of the confusion.
'After nearly 10 years of suffering with sporadic short term bouts of depression, I plucked up the courage to make an appointment to visit Pamela. It was a very difficult decision to make however I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Throughtout the sessions with Pamela I was able to understand both my symptoms and triggers in a confidential, pleasant and non-judgemental environment. I was then provided with the necessary skills and knowledge to be able to successfully address the issues I had developed over the years. Within a short space of time I was able to successfully improve my quality of life and well being. Thanks. Matthew'.
'I'd been on the search of happiness as long as I can remember and genuinely didn't think I'd ever get to understand how it felt. Since embarking on my journey with Pamela, I have found myself, love myself and made peace with everything that was holding me back. She's kind, genuine and puts you at ease instantly - never did I believe I could look forward to counselling sessions so much! Thanks for listening and laughing with me every step of the way. Everyone needs a Pamela in their life! 'Jasmine.
'Just want to say, thank you for all your help. You have really helped me turn my life around. Sarah' .
'Freudian garbage! Pretentious prats presuming to tell me how to live my life and what a loser I am yet they are so dysfunctional they all should be in a Woody Allen film! Besides, I did 24 years in an elite arm of H.M Forces so what could a woman tell me about my problems and how to deal with them? Exactly - zip! Just suck-it-up and crack -on. Seven sessions later I commend this engaging, professional and grounded person to you. Put aside your preconceptions. Leave behind your fears and prejudices. Open-up your heart, your mind and your consciousness. Pamela is a listener, an incredibly talented listener. She is the objectiveness we all need from time to time. She is totally non-judgemental and will never, ever, even suggest what you need to do- you will gain that understanding yourself from the reflective journey you will undertake together. I left each session feeling cleansed, empowered and smiling'
'Before seeing Pamela there was nothing I liked about myself. Now I feel so much more self confident. Pamela has helped me grow as a person. Thanks. Chloe'.
'I was initially referred to Pamela through work as I suffer with a degenerative illness with no cure.
Pamela has really helped me focus on what's important to me and helped me face the challenges ahead
much more positively. Thank you, you have helped me enormously. Carol'.
'Without you I would have remained in the miserable rut/existence for years to come. You have empowered me to find the strength for myself, I am forever indebted, thank you'
'Coming out of a controlling relationship I was convinced I could not make it on my own. Talking to Pam made me see what a special person I was and that I could achieve my goals. Without Pam coming into my life at the right time I would not be in the position I am today. Thank You'
'Thank you so much for all of your help, I feel amazing!'

At some time in our lives we all experience difficulties and feel that we are struggling to cope or feel stuck and are unable to move forward.
Although well meaning, sometimes friends and family are unable to help, either because they are too close or because they may judge you or offer advice.
I feel passionately that finding the right counsellor for you can help you see your way through to the light at the end of the tunnel.
By exploring your situation, by listening to your problems and by encouraging you to discover the answers without judging your actions or your decisions, counselling can be the first step to discovering a happier more fulfilled you.
