Who am I?
Hello, I’m Lynne and a warm welcome to you.
I am a counsellor who can help, if you have experienced loss of any kind, or an unexpected or unwanted change, to move forward and reconnect with your meaning and purpose.
Reaching out to a counsellor is a brave step and an acknowledgement to yourself that you are struggling and need help.
Having taken that step and now landed on my website I will do my very best to help you. I believe that you deserve to be listened to and to be supported and encouraged to find your own way.
One Step At A Time
I don’t have all the answers, although I might have a suggestion or two, or bring a different perspective which may be helpful. I know that I am OK to sit with you when you are stuck, feeling hopeless or just plain lost. Together we can find a way through and forward to a more hopeful place.
One step at a time.
“Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force…..when we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand.”

Qualifications & Training
Why did I become a counsellor?
The seed was sown in my mid-twenties when I had my first experience of counselling. I came from my first session quite blown away by my counsellor’s warmth, acceptance, encouragement, quality of listening, and feeling that, finally, here was someone who was on my side and who wanted to help.
That seed grew and in 1997 I qualified from a 3-year training in Psychosynthesis Counselling and Therapy. Since then, I have gathered a wealth of experience working with people from all walks of life and I continue to be dedicated to help in whatever way I can. When, at someone’s last session, I witness the changes they have made and see the difference in the way they feel about themselves, I can’t help but feel both moved and excited.
