Lynette Evans qualified as an Integrative Counsellor and psychotherapist (Level 7) after studying a BACP accredited Post Graduate Diploma at the University of Wales, Newport.  She works with  children, young people, adults, couples and families.   She is a professional member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework for good practice.

Besides having her own private practice she is also employed by a local authority to provide a community based counselling service to 3 – 25 year olds. 

Integrative Counselling simply means that Lynette is able to chose aspects from a range of  theoretical models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing and Gestalt, rather than being limited to one and integrate them into a single approach.  This allows her to be flexible and creative in her practice and tailor the  work to the needs of each individual client using a diverse range of skills.  

She has continuous experience providing counselling and psychotherapy to a diverse range of clients such as Local Council Authorities, GP's, charities and organisations, EAP's, businesses, individuals and couples. Lynette counsels clients from a wide range of ages, ethnicities and cultures, and these experiences have given her the tools to communicate freely with people and help them open up on the whole range of issues that affect their lives.  In particular she has experience of counselling clients through issues such as childhood trauma, anger management, domestic abuse, abuse, self harm, relationship issues, self esteem, social phobias, loss and change, depression, negative thoughts, anxiety/panic attacks, stress, bereavement, PTSD/trauma, eating disorders, sexual orientation, suicidal idealisation and health issues.
