About me

So, you may have reached the point where you are ready to make a change. You may be looking to understand yourself in a deeper way and break free of the patterns of the past. You might be sick of that chest gripping fear of anxiety, or carrying around those weighty chains of depression and you are looking to make that first step towards an easier way of living. There may be trauma from the past that is shadowing your life or you may be struggling with difficult emotions such as anger or grief. Let's take the next step together.
As an integrative therapist, I work from a base of person centred therapy but add to that acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion focussed therapy and strengths based positive therapy. This means I can offer a balance of both listening and doing exercises within the therapy room. We can develop coping strategies together and find what works for you.
So you are here, ready to take that step and reach out to someone. If you would like to work with me I will offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where we work at your pace and I always hold your wellbeing at the heart of everything we do. You will always be in charge of our sessions be this short term or long term work.

Extremely helpful therapy sessions

I had only one meeting with Lydia, but I can say that I felt very comfortable communicating with her. She listened but at the same time interacted with me. I can say that although it was a video call, I felt better after our talk and look forward to our next session.

I struck gold with Lydia. She is a complete professional with all the right tools while at the same time bringing all of herself to the sessions, being a very compassionate, smart and listening human being. It feels genuine all the way. She adapts to my specific needs in therapy and goes above and beyond to help and understand. She is always supportive and there for me. She asks the right questions to help me heal and grow. In summary; she is a life saver.

Lydia is a superb match for me. I felt like she really listens and put in lots of effort in our meetings. She teaches me useful tools to situations that I used to not responds appropriately before.

Lydia has been and continues to be an absolute godsend and I will forever be grateful for her assistance, her expertise, and for the way she has been supporting me on my difficult journey. In the really rough times, she was there for me in a way that went beyond anything you can and should expect from a therapist. She really cares. I couldn’t have done this journey without her, it sounds dramatic, but is absolutely true. Her empathy and expertise are unmatched. I shall forever be grateful for having been matched with this wonderful therapist and human being.
