Hi, I am Lynn and I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor based in private practice in Chilcompton since 2012 and working on-line. At present, I am able to meet people face to face in an outside sheltered space, if they prefer, or indoors in my therapy room. My room is on the ground floor.
It can sometimes be difficult to talk to those close to you as they often, understandably, struggle to remain impartial. Sometimes professional support is needed so that you can express yourself to someone who has no vested interest in you being a partiular way and who will not be shocked, judgemental or overwhelmed about what you are saying. It can be surprising how valuable it can be to have a space where you can be helped to explore yourself, what are your own responses, perceptions and feelings and to find a fresh and unimagined way of looking at problematic emotions, inner blocks, relationship difficulties, explore depresssion and anxious situations.
I believe that you are your own expert and my role is to help you expand your awareness and understanding of what's going on for you. Many people have excellent insights into their issues yet are still stuck and sometimes a power psychological insight can jump start them into making a move forward. My goal is to help you make the changes you want and to protect what you hold dear. I also believe that negative situations can be used as a catalyst to push you forward and can even motivate you toward achieving the change you desire. Our work together will promote this movement.
Some peope talk of 'getting therapy', seeing a psychotherapist, visiting their shrink or meeting a counsellor. However you word it, I believe that does not have to be a long drawn out process. What does 'long term' mean? It means that you should feel and see a change happening, we regularly review our work and process so that you can decide when you have reached your goal.
I offer a safe, confidential environment where you can reflect on things, be encouraged to try new things and maybe take a few risks and practice the change you hope to achieve in your life. Together we can work at finding ways to let go of things that could have been holding you back.
If you would like to make an appointment, either contact me by email or call on 07531 555 878.
