Hello, my name is Susan Lyons, and I am an experienced counsellor with a private practice serving Winchester and area. I provide individual counselling for adults and young adults in once-weekly sessions. I am an accreditied member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), and I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling recognized by both the BACP and the Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF). I also have a Certificate in Online Counselling Skills issued by the CPCAB, and a BPS Accredited Certificate in Clinical Supervision. More information on both of these professional organizations can be found on the other information page of this website.
I have experience counselling adults and young adults who are experiencing difficulties with any of the following: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, making and sustaining satisfying relationships, anger and conflict, feelings of alienation and/or isolation, and issues surrounding gender confusion/identity. I offer supportive, non-judgmental therapy in a safe and confidential space, and I adhere to the BACP's guidelines of ethical practice. In addition to my professional qualifications, I regularly attend Continuing Professional Development Workshops and Seminars to ensure that my work stays current and is informed by recent developments in theory and practice.
