Lindsey Anderson Counselling (MSc, PostGrad Dip Counselling)
English speaking counsellor for adults and adolescents - face to face and online.
I’m a warm, compassionate and practical counselor working in a supportive and gentle way so you feel heard, understood, supported and safe.
By encouraging self-awareness and offering guidance, I can help you find relief and balance so you can recover and move through the difficulties you are facing.
I can help with a range of issues from relationship difficulties, dilemmas, break-ups, separation, divorce, workplace abuse, bereavement, grief, loss, stress, trauma and other life changes.
In an atmosphere of calm, respect and understanding you can talk openly and honestly with me to explore any difficult thoughts or feelings you are having, safe to be your true self, without worry of criticism, fear or judgment.
My approach and how we can work together
I use an integrated counselling approach combining talking therapy and cognitive behavioural tools within a psychodynamic frame. This gives me the flexibility to choose the best-fit approach, tools and techniques from various schools of thought to create a practical and personalized therapy that’s unique and right for you.
My qualifications and experience
I have an MSc in Organisational Behaviour from London University, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the Institute of Counselling, Glasgow, in association with Glasgow Caledonian University, and a BA (Hons) in Communication from Leeds Metropolitan University, UK.
I’m a professional member of The National Counselling Society, UK (NCS) and attend regular trainings at Webster University, Geneva and in the UK to enhance my professional skills. I adhere to the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) counselling code of ethics.
I’m also a Senior Associate of The Rome Institute for International Counselling, Coaching and Mediation providing individual and group services to help employees, managers and teams deal with work-related stress, organizational changes and psychological health problems. Currently I’m working with UNHCR and UNDP providing psychological well-being sessions to staff pre and post mission.
I’ve been in private counselling practice in Switzerland since 2013 and before that I worked with the United Nations and other organisations in counselling, communication and staff development roles for more than 20 years.
