Counselling & CBT

LJ Counselling & Wellbeing MBACP, PG Dip CYP

Life is a rollercoaster! Sometimes it's plain sailing, you are enjoying the cruise surrounded by your loved ones. The warmth of the sun on your skin and the freshness of the breeze through your hair one minute then suddenly storm clouds begin to gather. The sky gets darker and darker, the waves larger and seemingly endless. The wind is growing stronger taking you in all directions. To stay safe you need to head for shore and anchor down. Perhaps the lighthouse on the shore can guide you towards that safety.


Counselling and CBT can offer that safe place in which to explore your stormy skies. A lighthouse or the safe haven of the harbour counselling offers a therapeutic, non judjemental space to help you navigate yourself through the thunder and lightening to calmer seas.




Whatever is causing your storm counselling can help. Available for adults, children & young people, families and couples, I am registered and or accreditated with British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. (BACP) .



Who is LJ Counselling & Wellbeing?

I am an ethical, compassionate and trustworthy counsellor offering a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore your experiences and concerns.


Counselling for me has been an incredible journey of self awareness and growth. Using my experiences, techniques and knowledge gained through study I believe I can offer a unique perspective on the counselling process.


As a Person Centered counsellor, my clients are in control of their therapeutic journey. Building a trusting, non judgmental relationship in a safe space is an important part of the counselling practice. To complement and enhance this process I integrate methods from Humanistic, Psycho-dynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies, Neuro Linguistic Programming and Life coaching.


Finding solutions and identifying ways of dealing with anxieties and concerns come from the exploration of your thoughts, beliefs, behaviors and experiences.


Lifestyle choices can hugely affect our mental, emotional and physical selves. With a wealth of experience gained within the health & fitness industry as a coach I offer the opportunity to draw from this to add extra insight into your sessions.


Relaxed, open minded and compassionate I can offer a confidential and safe environment in which to explore. Regular reviews will allow us to develop strategies and ensure the therapy is reaching your expectations.


As an Accredited member of the BACP (registration number 744440) I adhere to high professional and ethical standards therefore attending regular monthly supervision and continual professional development.
