About Lynda Riley
I am an accredited counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I have over 12 years experience working as a qualified counsellor.
I have worked in varied settings as a counsellor including many GP surgeries throughout the Yorkshire area. More recently I provided specialist Counselling and psychological care for individuals and their families within a Hospice setting. I have experience of working with a wide spectrum of psychological difficulties and a strong interest working with people who are experiencing the psychological impact of change and loss related to both physical and mental illness.
I have extensive training in Counselling and Psychotherapeutic approaches and theories. I am committed to updating my professional and personal development on a regular basis and abide to the Values and Principles of the BACP Ethical Framework.
About the therapy I provide
I believe my role is to work with people in a process of self discovery and understanding. This may relate to many aspects of a persons' life or be triggered by experiences such as loss, change or past-trauma. Sometimes there is a less tangible, but important need to gain more insight in order to be able to live life to its full potential.
It isn’t always an easy task to access counselling or find the right therapist for your needs. At your initial appointment we can discuss how counselling may be helpful to you and if it would be beneficial to make further appointments. I work with each person on an individual basis and the length of therapy will relate to your own unique needs.
Counselling is often considered a talking therapy, however sometimes it can be helpful to use other ways to express emotions and depth of feelings. I have experience of working in different creative ways with various methods and materials. This can be of great benefit when words are not accessible or enough to describe what you are thinking or feeling.
I do have regular working times and fees, however both can sometimes be flexible in specific circumstances.
I am also a qualified Clinical Supervisor of Counsellors and Professionals and welcome any enquiries.
