Patricia Lambert

Counsellor

My practice and approach

I believe Counselling is a process facilitated by a caring and non-judgmental professional where you can create better coping mechanisms and work on your personal development. Counselling enables you to develop a clearer understanding of yourself and a better awareness of your emotional responses to personal, professional, physical or relationship difficulties.

 

My approach is person-centred and integrative. This enables the client to deal with their issues in ways that are best suited to them. This can also promote positive growth and self-belief.

I also use mindfulness with my clients as this has shown to be effective in addressing depression and anxiety.

I offer day, evening and weekend sessions. Please contact me for availability.

Qualifications and experience

I work privately with a wide range of diverse issues and for the NHS in a fertility clinic as a lead counsellor. I have over 10 years experience. I am also a lecturer for the Open University.
I hold a Counselling Diploma (HE), B.Sc. (Hons) in Psychology and Advanced Teacher Certificate in Meditation, Mindfulness and relaxation.

I am a senior accredited counsellor with BICA.

I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their codes of ethics.

I attend training for professional and personal development on a regular basis.

I have extensive experience working with a wide range of issues as well as being specialised in the emotional and psychological impacts of infertility.

What I aim to achieve in my practice

I provide therapeutic counselling to help people deal with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, sadness, low self-esteem, confidence, anger, stress, relationship difficulties, loss and infertility.

I aim to help you explore how you are responding emotionally and psychologically to the challenges or life circumstances that are causing distress.

From this you will gain a better understanding of yourself, awareness of your needs and/or develop news ways of coping.
