“At the heart of how I work is the belief that by fully seeing, hearing and accepting a person for who they are, I can help you find a way through the emotional struggle, moving towards relief, self awareness, clarity and balance.”
Hello, I’m Lindsey, I’m Scottish, I have two boys and we currently live near Nyon in Switzerland.
I have over 20 years of professional experience working for the United Nations (UN) and other international organisations in counselling, communication and training roles in Africa and Europe, as well as being in private practice as a therapist in Switzerland since 2013.
I feel honoured to be doing the work I do with the unique and special people I meet every day.
I’m a warm, compassionate and practical counsellor who works gently and insightfully so that you feel seen, heard, supported and safe, helping you find the answers you need to rebalance, gain clarity and move forward.
I use an integrated counselling approach drawing upon a combination of emotion-focused talking therapy, cognitive behavioural techniques, creative interventions and psychological educational tools.
This approach gives you the safe space to feel fully seen and heard and for me the flexibility to use the most suitable methods and techniques for you from various schools of thought, creating a personalised therapy that’s unique and right for you.
Whichever approach I use, at the heart of what I do is accepting you for who you are and by doing so, help you to find the answers you need to move forward.
Having lived in South Africa, Kenya, Italy and Switzerland and worked in high-stress areas, as well as being employed/unemployed, married/divorced, a working mum/stay at home mum, I have personal experience of the difficulties and painful emotions different life situations can bring. With this experience, I aim to bring a depth of empathy, understanding, support and hope to everyone I work with.
