About me

Hi, I'm Robyn.

My training and experience have shown me that, with the right support, we're all capable of turning our lemons into lemonade. Lemonade is my private practice based at Lotus Therapy Centre in Mansfield, offering one to one counselling to children, young people and adults. My role is to provide you with a non-judgemental, open, honest, empathetic and supportive space to fully explore your situation and to help you to understand your thoughts and feelings so that, together, we can work through any difficulties you are experiencing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm an integrative humanistic counsellor with training in various theories (person-centred, transactional analysis, gestalt, cognitive behavioural therapy) which allows me to have an holistic approach and tailor my support to your individual needs.

I have worked with children and young people for many years, previously undertaking work for CASY both in community venues and school settings, providing support with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, anger, depression, self harm, gender dysphoria, bullying, stress and low self esteem.

Alongside my private work, I support young people in a Priory SEMH school and residential care home, provide an EAP service with PAM Assist, and volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Care.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their ethical framework. I undertake regular supervision, have a current enhanced DBS certificate and professional liability insurance.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
