Counsellor and Psychotherapist for individuals, couples and young people in Barnes and Richmond/East Sheen, South West London - Beccy Lindsay
Thank you for visiting my website.
If you are looking for friendly, constructive, counselling, I offer experienced, professional help. If you are feeling anxious or depressed or that your problems or feelings are unbearable, and it seems as though you are coping alone, then counselling can bring relief and support. You can come for individual or couple counselling, to talk generally or about specific problems you want to solve. You may be in a crisis situation or stuck in destructive patterns of relating. Whether your problems are career or home-life related, whether you are feeling panicky or sad, torn about what to do next or desperate, a decision to have counselling is a new start.
I offer short-term and long-term work, but some clients just take it session by session. Short-term counselling is a chance to focus on a specific issue or a selected target area. We work more in the present than in the past, understanding the triggers that disrupt your everyday experiences or set off self-destructive behaviours.
In longer-term counselling, the approach I use allows you to speak in more depth. We will explore what is going on underneath the surface for you. By understanding what the symptoms you have are caused by, counselling can help you get your life working again, at work and at home.
I am experienced in helping clients with the following issues :
It is easy to book your initial appointment and does not commit you to any further sessions. Whether you have had counselling before or this is your first time, an introductory session offers you the chance to see how counselling feels so that you can decide if it is right for you.

My private practices are in Barnes and Richmond/East Sheen, London SW13 & SW14. Introductory sessions are £50 for an individual and £60 for a couple (concessions negotiable) and last 50 minutes. Sessions cost thereafter are individuals from £60, couples £65, concessions negotiable.
