About me and my therapy practice

My name is Lydia and I have 17 years experience as a counsellor for adults.  

If you are experiencing a challenging situation in your life and you would like to find a way forwards, this could be due to a change in circumstances (for example, bereavement, end of relationship, work, family estrangement), or life transitions such as career change, empty nester, menopause, retirement), or you want to work through a negative experience from your past, please call me.  

I also work with people who would like to explore themselves a bit more, such as identity, racial or cultural issues, particularly where those issues are contributing to the difficulties they are having.

We will focus on your own values and goals, how your current situation challenges these, and how these challenges can be overcome in a beneficial and healthy way.

If you are experiencing difficult feelings that stop you from enjoying your life to the full. 

If you would like to make some changes in your life and don't know where to start.  

If you have had an upsetting event or upheaval in your life, now or in the past that you are struggling to come to terms with.  

If you are struggling in your relationships with your partner, family, friends or at work.  

If you have experienced a major loss or change in your life, or you are looking to make a change.

If any of the above applies to you, I can help you.  

I offer a free 30 minute introductory session where we can explore the best way to help you.

I offer both short term and longer term counselling, depending on your needs.  

Originally from London; Northampton has been my home for 20 years.  When I am not counselling,  I enjoy many creative pursuits in my spare time such as photography, art and music.  


Practice description

I offer face to face counselling online via the Zoom platform.  I also offer telephone counselling.


Having been working online since the beginning of 2020, I have found this to be a safe, effective and convenient way of offering and receiving counselling.

Clients have reported the benefits of not having to travel, and being able to have their counselling in familiar surroundings, without the preamble of travelling to and from a different location.  There is also the benefit of being able to have early morning sessions, which seems to work very well for some people.

If it is difficult to find space at home, we can have telephone counselling.  I have also been offering telephone counselling for nearly five years for those clients who prefer to work this way.

And, of course, you can have a mixture of both if you prefer!

I offer a free 30 minute introductory session where we can discuss your counselling needs.


My first session

I offer a free 30 minute introductory session.  In this session you will have the opportunity to tell me some more about what has brought you to counselling, and we can look at ways that I could help you.

You will be able to ask me questions about how I work, and we would discuss what has or hasn't worked for you in the past and what you would like to change.

We would discuss a potential timescale for your counselling and the cost of your counselling. 

I will send you a copy of the terms and conditions of our work together which would have my contact details, payment details, etc.  

At the end of our introductory session, you will be invited to go and take as much time as you need to reflect on our session and decide whether you would like to engage in counselling with me.
