Therapist - Lincoln

Lincoln LN2
Sessions from £40.00


  • Flexible hours available
  • Concessionary rates


I am currently available for online & telephone work, as well as Walk n Talk therapy in the Lincoln area.

I can be flexible with daytime and evening appointments Monday to Friday.

Walk n Talk is in daylight only.

With the exception of 'Walk n Talk' out in the fresh air I am not meeting indoors for face to face clients as I have a role working with extremely vulnerable patients for a local charity.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer:

Person-centred counselling.  This can be over a period of sessions or in a Single Session Therapy approach.

Single Session Therapy is intended to be very focused on a single key issue.  I will use a non-directive attitude to counselling but keep you on topic.

Both of these could be online, telephone or 'Walk n Talk' - which is where we arrange to meet in a suitable location and connect with the power and spiritual connection of nature. (All religion respected!) 

Rewind Therapy.  This requires two sessions, with a review taking place two weeks after the Rewind.  Proven to help most people with PTSD and cPTSD.  The review session can include a furhter Rewind Therapy if appropriate and, also, person-centred  work to help deal with wider issues.

Practice description

I am person-centred trained - the first empirically researched and proven therapy.  I am trained in working in a traditional 'Rogerian' manner but also in a Single Session Therapy  approach - having trained with Prof Windy Dryden.

I will not give you 'homework', try to tell you what is wrong or impose a treatment plan solution on you - I will help you to try and find your own solution.  I will always listen to you, hear you and validate your experience.

Rewind Therapy requires two sessions.  The two sessions can be repeated up to 3 times for the same issue.  Most people benefit from the first session on its own anyway.  This form of psychotherapy will be applied with the person-centred values that are my core.  

My first session

Person-centred counselling can start immediately.

Rewind Therapy will require an initial conversation and completion of a recognised medical diagnostic tool to confirm appropriateness.  This can be as part of the first session.

Single Session Therapy will require an initial assesment to confirm appropriateness and for pre-meeting questions to be discussed.  We will then meet 'As if' this is going to be our only meeting.  Further options will then be signposted with you.

Walk n Talk requires an initial conversation to confirm arrangements.

There are no charges for initial conversations.
