Charlotte Van-Lint

Counsellor in Lancashire

HI , I am Charlotte and an experienced, approachable, compassionate Integrative Psychotherapist who has available appointments to fit around your working hours and a busy life style.

Are you struggling to adapt as we come out of lockdown?
Has your relationship been affected?
Have you noticed that your are relying on substances more to cope?
Maybe you have just lost your job or have been made redundant?

People often experience difficulty following a traumatic life event and maybe you are feeling disorientated, anxious or depressed - talking therapy can offer a space to process your thoughts, feelings and emotions and begin to understand your experiences whilst enabling you to learn new ways to cope, change ingrained habits and make life changes while feeling listened to, valued and heard.

I adopt a holistic approach and offer a wide range of methods to help you discover your path to psychological wellbeing in a safe, confidential and comfortable setting where the emphasis is on YOU.

I am currently working online due to the Covid guidance and advice and am able to offer day time, evening or weekend sessions.

Background & Qualifications

Qualifications

PG Dip Integrative Psychotherapy, PG Dip Probation Studies, BSc, Applied Psychology, BA Community Justice, Registered MBACP.

I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work holistically and believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship as a means to support individuals through their difficulties no matter how complex or challenging they may seem. I integrate a range of methods skills and approaches to suit you and your needs.

I have worked in a diverse range of settings across a 30 year period including Criminal Justice, Education, Mental Health and the Prison Service. This has enabled me to work with complex mental health needs and I have also acquired skills as a group facilitator . I have a commitment to enabling and empowering individuals to access the right support to move forward and you will find me to be warm, empathic and commited to walking alongside you as you face your challenges.

My Specialisms

I integrate a range of methods skills and approaches to suit you and your needs, but foremost you can expect to be met as a unique individual. A good starting point is for us to decide together what you want and need from therapy.

I have considerable experience of working with a range of mental health difficulties including, anxiety ,depression, panic attacks, relationship difficulties and a history of trauma. My specialisms include working with individuals who have relationships difficulties and experienced childhood adversity and trauma. This can often lead to difficulties in adult attachment and future relationships . I draw upon this experience to enable and empower individuals who are struggling or have experienced domestic/narcissitic abuse.

Do you need to break free from a toxic relationship. Narcissistic abuse recovery is a complicated process, and it helps to have a therapist or counsellor who understands exactly how it feels to be where you are - or at least one who truly understands the subtle but toxic nature of this pervasive, manipulative and controlling type of abuse.

Please feel free to contact me for any further information you may require.
