About me and my therapy practice
Do you feel overwhelmed by the challenges you are facing? Do you feel that something definitely has to change? Do you feel stuck and in need of someone to talk to?
My name is Linda. I’m a Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with a number of therapeutic approaches that I tailor to suit the needs of each client. In addition to using different approaches, I believe the therapeutic alliance that evolves between my client and me is pivotal in the healing process & is the foundation of our work together.
My passion is to help people. I became aware of this in my previous careers in health & social care, and as a volunteer therapist with various organisations. These experiences opened my eyes and my heart to the needs of those around me. From my work, I discovered that many people are anxious, depressed, lonely & in desperate need of someone who cares enough to wait & listen.
I have come to believe in my ability to be a good listener. And when I listen, I endeavour to listen passionately. I listen with everything within me. I listen for needs. I listen for pain. I listen for both the spoken & the unspoken. This is part of what originally inspired me to get a qualification in counselling.
My practice, New Day 4 U Counselling and Psychotherapy Services, is a safe space to reflect & offload. I offer short or long term therapy to adults and adolescents. I am experienced in dealing with issues related to bereavement, anxiety, depression, self-harm, relationship and so on.
