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.

Considering therapy may seem daunting. However, with the guidance of a warm and understanding therapist, therapy can be a collaborative and positive experience.

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
