Lincoln Counselling

Providing Counselling in Lincoln and Surrounding Areas

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website! I am a Therapist providing CounsellingCBT and Hypnotherapy in Lincoln; For Relationships, Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Loss, Self Esteem, Stress, Divorce, Work, Addictions, Exam Pressures and much more; For the Individual Adult, Couples, Families and groups who are experiencing difficulty in their thoughts and emotions. 

My aim at Lincoln Counselling is to provide a warm, safe and open space to empower you to work towards a healthier state of mind; to encourage exploration, promote self awareness. You are the protagonist in you own change, and seeking counselling is the first step towards your personal growth.

I value individuality, honesty, courage, exploring ones own path, standing tall, attachments, connections with others, relationships to parental figures. Empowering some one to find their own answers is the best motivation for them. I know I am not a rescuer as I don't presume to have all of the answers, although I may have a suggestion or two. I know that I am ok to sit with someone in crisis, to be silent and allow time and space to learn. I am not afraid of who I am and believe the dark places help inform our growth.

vision

...to help those in need of some professional, straight forward life changing Counselling. Helping others to gain improvements, balance and satisfaction in their day to day lives.  I provide a service which promotes positive regard, empathy and self worth.

I am a Board Member and Associate Member of the ISPC,Individual Member of the BACP, Private Practicing Counsellor with over 10 years working within care.

 

I intend to promote an environment of trust and confidence, support a platform of balanced focus on thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how we go about getting our needs met by how we express our honesty. I intend to evoke positive change through courage making an authentic platform to work from.

Perhaps you are needing support during a bereavement, a trauma, for a relationship issue. Do you need support with relationship or family issues, work stress, depression, anxiety, relationships? Perhaps you're going through a life transition e.g.  personal life, breakdown of relationships, leaving home; in your health, changes in the workplace, personal growth. Perhaps there's something in the past is still unresolved. Having nightmares? Feeling anxious in your daily life?

Being listened to is a powerful experience as in day to day life, how often do people actually listen? Counselling can help you and give a deeper understanding of self, what's really important to you and what really matters.

Counselling aims to provide support to you, so you can become more authentic, assertive and compassionate towards yourself, and then to others. The awareness you build, the more open you will become to discover more. The relationship between you and me, created together (known as the therapeutic alliance) plays an important part in any change. This relationship can used as a sounding wall and used as a platform to make changes in a safe environment.

In our first meeting together we can determine if we are to work together, to create a plan and priorities working areas that are presenting, and for you to begin your journey into the therapeutic care of self.

your testimonials

"I had counselling for a number of reasons, the main thing I got from Lincoln Counselling was the ability to be aware and honest about my life, my situation. I never felt judged and was empowered to take the masks off and start living my life." JW

"Lincoln Counselling helped me to balance my life with my family whilst building options for the future. I had limited options before due to having limited self belief, but now I'm free to create the life that I choose, rather than letting my life slip by." CJ

"I used to feel anxious continually and didn't know how to cope. I wanted to seek help. Lincoln Counselling helped guide me to be open whilst allowing me to understand what was going on in my head. I am truly grateful for the changes in my life" SB
