Hi, I'm Lindsey and I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
Feeling Depressed or Anxious usually signals that your needs are not being met & I'm widely experienced to support you in discovering them. You may want to address difficulties in your relationship, at work, within your family, as a parent, your friends or even the way you see yourself, all of which I can support you with.
I offer a Kind, Caring & Safe Space for you to discover once and for all exactly what is holding you back. I'll help you unpick some of the unhelpful perceptions you probably have of yourself & support you to discover your True Potential.
As well as this, I also specialise working with those who have had difficult family, childhood and/or relationship histories including; Challenging/Toxic Family Dynamics, Abuse (inc. Narcissistic) Bullying (child/work/adult), Domestic Violence/Stalking, Assaults & Traumatic Life Events.
Our history shapes us & can lead to Self-Doubt, People-Pleasing, Attracting Entitled People, Guilt, Poor Boundaries, Poor Self-Esteem, Fear of Relationships, Trauma Responses (PTSD) & feeling Powerless to make a Change.
I am a genuine and down-to-Earth person & know making that first contact can be a challenge. Why not start with an email or text? You can then meet me online or over the phone for a FREE 30 minute consultation and if you decide to, have sessions Online / over the pPhone Across The UK or Face to Face in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.
You are far more capable that you know and I'll share my knoweldge & expertise to help you realise and experience this.
I am here to help and look forward to hearing from you soon.
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.
