Hello, my name is Lynne and I am a fully qualified and BACP accredited counsellor, providing counselling & psychotherapy at Summer House Therapy in Brentwood, Essex.

Due to COVID-19, we are all being asked to stay at home .

At this difficult time, you may feel that you need support more than ever, so I am offering video counselling via Skype.

The process is similar to face-to-face counselling, as we can arrange sessions in advance at an agreed time.
You would need to find a quiet place, where you won’t be interrupted or distracted, so that you can engage in the process.

I am here to assess your individual needs with compassion and empathy.

Therapy for Adults

When you are facing difficulties and find yourself feeling low, overwhelmed or lost, it can be hard to find a way forward.


Counselling and psychotherapy can offer a safe space, a time to feel really listened to, understood and accepted.

I can provide you with the opportunity to make sense of your feelings, thoughts and experiences, in a calm space, away from the pressures of your everyday life.

Therapy for Children

You may be concerned that there has been a noticeable change in your child's mood, behaviour or both.

I seek to develop a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship with a child.

This begins with communication of empathy and understanding, setting boundaries and being alongside and engaging in playful activities as directed by the child.

  • Anxiety

  • Attachment issues

  • Bereavement and loss
