Linzi is an experienced Senior Counsellor in MAC Counselling. She is a Registered member of COSCA. Linzi is able to offer a holistic approach to counselling for her clients, to ensure that their sessions are as individual as they are. Linzi is also the Lead on our Group Wellness Sessions which take place throughout the year.
“As much as I have an interest in the CBT approach, I feel that it is important to listen to the needs of my clients and adapt to suit their needs – some clients respond well to the tools of CBT, whereas others will be more aligned to a Person-Centred approach.”
“This approach effectively allows the client to steer the ship. Whatever those needs are, I strive to ensure that they are met on every occasion.”
Linzi has a Counselling Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Group Work.
Linzi describes herself as a perpetual student, with a drive to evolve and grow in her profession as a counsellor.
“I think it’s important to keep learning in my role, to ensure that my clients benefit from the most up to date and relevant approaches to therapy that are on offer. I love being able to bring my knowledge into a session and see the positive changes in my clients that they are hoping for.” Linzi understands the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship and creates a safe and welcoming environment for her clients.
“The relationship between myself and my client absolutely sets the tone of how beneficial my counselling will be. That’s why a relationship of trust, understanding and non-judgement takes precedence in every session that I take my clients through. In order for them to share their life story, I understand that I have to gain their trust – I do this by taking my time getting to know my clients and ensuring that they feel comfortable and supported in the sessions together.”
