People seek psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. However, the underlying ’thread’ is that they feel their life isn’t as fulfilling as they would want – or perhaps that they are experiencing seemingly relentless discontentment and even unhappiness.

Issues may include:

  • low self-esteem
  • relationship problems
  • lack of confidence
  • anxiety and stress
  • depression
  • bereavement and loss
  • feelings of meaninglessness

Everyone’s experience of psychotherapy is different, reflecting their individuality and the particular challenges they face.

Some people use their sessions to address a particular situation or area of distress. Others use their 50 minutes as a weekly ‘check-in’ – a quiet space to reflect on their responses to what’s happening in their lives.

During an initial assessment, Lynn will explore what brings you to psychotherapy and the main influences and stresses in your life. This enables you to consider whether psychotherapy is right for you – and whether Lynn is the right psychotherapist.

On-going work is during regular 50-minutes sessions – once a week or sometimes more frequently.

Complex difficulties

As well as private practice, Lynn has many years’ experience of working with people in psychiatric and institutional settings.  This has given her specialist expertise in such areas as:

  • addictions
  • eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, overeating, binge eating)
  • self-harm and self-destructive behaviour
  • personality disorders
  • dissociative disorders

Lynn’s work in hospitals and clinics enables her to draw on the expertise of a network of other clinical professionals (dieticians and psychiatrists, for example) who may also contribute to a client’s progress and well-being.
