Robin Thain MBACP Registered
My name is Robin and I have a Counselling practice in the village of Cherry Willingham just outside Lincoln.
If you are going through a difficult time in your life, looking for a supportive person to talk to, or better understand your experiences, then counselling could be for you. If you have difficulty expressing emotional concerns or identifying issues that are causing you anxious sleepless nights then talking to someone who will not judge you in a completely confidential atmosphere may be for you. If you are a man, sometimes it`s difficult to admit to anyone that you even have a problem, but complete confidentiality is guaranteed.
I understand, having experience of crisis counselling, how important an individuals problems are and how everyone is different. Talking to someone who is not a friend, colleague or a relative can make every difference.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and operate within their ethical framework. I also have regular Supervision to oversee my work.

I offer a friendly, patient and open approach to counselling and work at the clients own pace. I can help you to explore the issues that worry you, help you to understand them and then come to terms with them.
If financial issues are worrying you, a colleague can help with advocacy work (i.e. helping to understand the benefits system and completing claim forms).
There is a regular bus service to Cherry Willingham.
