4+ Years Post-Registration Experience

Welcome. I am Lyn. I'm a registered counsellor - I support individuals with their mental health. I hold private and voluntary sector experience as a counsellor. My interest includes bereavement, depression and self esteem, and the specific problems faced by men and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment helps you to discover if you are comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment session in Wilmslow.

Client Centred Therapy

Client centred therapy focuses on understanding and supporting you. It encourages your openness around the concerns you experience. Client centred therapy aims to help you discover your own answers.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts influence your feelings and behaviour. It recognises and challenges negative thoughts that perpetuate the issues you experience. The objective of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates CBT for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and social anxiety disorder.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue concerning your childhood or adulthood you explore. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and discover a solution which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Existential Therapy

Existential therapy investigates how you comprehend your life. It encompasses reflection on your perspectives, potential and options. Existential therapy seeks to help you find significance in your existence and the problems you encounter.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy selects therapies to suit your needs and the problems you experience. It explores your personal experience and options. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you advance your self-awareness.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious meaning of the problems you encounter. It facilitates you in being aware of aspects of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-understanding to give you options.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests psychodynamic therapy for depression and social anxiety disorder.
