About Lindsey

I am an experienced Psychotherapist and a Clinical Supervisor, offering a therapeutic experience that is specific to you, which means I may incorporate one or more modes of therapy depending on your needs.  As your therapist I work in a supportive, confidential, non-judgmental and empathetic way assisting you to negotiate the therapeutic process, which I believe this is one of the most important criteria for undergoing any type of therapy.  

 

I  worked for over four years as an Honorary Psychotherapist for the South London and Maudsley Hospital Trust and  also worked for a number of years as a counsellor/ therapist on a voluntary basis for a large charitable organisation.  I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)  and adhere to the BACP code of ethics and framework for good practice.  


 I have been an active public member of Guy’s & St.Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust for the past eleven years.  Before training as a Psychotherapist,  I worked for many years in the field of media and production.

Certificate in Clinical Supervision Skills, Approved by the British Psychological Society (BPS)

The way I work

 

When people visit my site it is usually because they are going through a very difficult time in their lives and are feeling a real need to get the right kind of help and support. 

 

People seek help when their thoughts and feelings become difficult to manage, which can often result in feeling overwhelmed.   If you have never experienced therapy before it is usual that you may have concerns about what to expect.  You may be feeling confused about a situation or you may be struggling to make sense of things.   A relationship may have broken down leaving you feeling out of control.  Whatever the difficulty seems to be, Psychotherapy and Counselling provides a safe space that helps you make sense of what is happening in your life.  

Seeking therapeutic help can provide the support you need to overcome your difficulties so that you can move forward in living your life to its fullest. 

 

 At the end of your therapy you can expect many positive life changes. You can expect a renewed perspective enabling you to feel more aware of your situation. You will also be in a position to make more informed choices and feel more in control.   A reduction in the intensity of initial difficulties can be observed and you will also be in a position to utilise effective coping mechanisms.   This invariably has a beneficial impact on your domestic, social and working life.

In addition to face to face therapy, I also offer online therapy via Skype, which means no matter where you are based in the world, you can engage in therapy at the click of a button.  Consistency of sessions is one of the most important aspects of therapy, however, for those who travel frequently, or who are unable to get to a session, this is a perfect way to make sure you can continue your therapy without hinderance. I have been working  successfully with clients, on Skype both in the UK and worldwide for many years.

I have a private practice based at The City of London Therapy Centre in EC1. You can contact me via the website below if you wish to make an appointment.
