Hi, I'm Lindsey and I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I trained at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, a stones throw away from Nottingham Castle in Nottingham city centre. I am a registered member of the UKCP, a major overseeing body of Counsellor and Psychotherapists' which means I adhere to their professional and ethical guidelines. I have indemnity insurance and in order to meet professional standards set out by the UKCP, my work is overseen by a supervisor who is also accredited.

Further to this I have both Drama and Teaching degrees and over 20 years experience of working with children, teenagers and young adults. In particular, I have specialised in those with emotional, behavioural and social difficulties and who have struggled within a school environment and with their relationships with both adults and other young people. My Masters Thesis focused on a Person Centred understanding of ADHD.
My above experience has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse range of adults as well as young people in a range of settings presenting with a wide variety of issues. As a person centred counsellor I deeply believe that it is the quality of the working relationship that provides the person the necessary supportive, non-judgemental and safe environment in which to explore, experience, understand and grow.
