Lynn Temple  BA (Hons), MBAPC

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and work with adults over the age of 18 within the United Kingdom.

Although I specialise in bereavement, I can also offer support with other parts of your life that you may be finding overwhelming and difficult to cope with right now.

The way I can support you is through online video or telephone counselling, which is an experience that many of my clients have found to be uniquely valuable and meaningful for them.  Offering support in this way means you can access support within the comfort of your own home and wherever you are located in the United Kingdom.  

Working online and by phone also enables me to keep my rates affordable and avoids my having to charge for missed sessions.

If you would like to talk to me or need further information, please contact me through text or email.  We can then arrange a mutually convenient time for me to call you for your free initial consultation. 

How can I help You?

How you experience life is unique to you and you are the only one who knows what that feels like.  Sometimes life doesn't go according to plan, unexpected things happen which may impact us in ways we never expected, leaving us feeling isolated, bewildered or completely confused.  

As a person-centred counsellor, my commitment is to:

Work with you in a partnership of mutual respect

To focus on what you feel is important

To support you with however you are experiencing life right now

To explore together sensitively, empathically and non-judgementally, how your experience feels and what it means to you, in a way that tries to understand what it is to be you. 

There are no rules when you feel you are struggling with life, there is no right or wrong way to be and sometimes we need support with that, and that is what I can offer.  


About my sessions

I work with adults over 18 years of age who reside in the United KIngdom who contact me direct, or through referral to my practice.

As a rough guide, I recommend at least six sessions.  However, we will take it on a session-by-session basis and it is for you to decide what you need and what feels best for you, and you are free to end therapy whenever you choose.

My sessions are £40 and each lasts one hour.

I understand that sometimes life gets in the way and it isn’t always possible for you to let me know in advance if you wish to cancel a session and if that happens, I do not charge for missed sessions.  

About me

I have a BA(Hons) in Person-Centred Counselling and am a certified counsellor in online and telephone counselling, I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).  However, qualifications are only part of what I can bring to you as a person-centred counsellor and to our counselling sessions.

For the past five years, I have worked as a bereavement volunteer with a leading, national charity.  However, it was personal experience of debilitating and prolonged grief that drew me to specialise in bereavement and make the move into private practice.   

How to book

Please text  07565 299 332 or email and leave a brief message, letting me know the best time for me to contact you. My aim is to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours.


Our initial telephone consultation is free and gives us an opportunity to decide if we want to work together.  Before any booked sessions take place, I will provide you with details of how we have agreed to work together, along with my privacy policy and terms of confidentiality.  All of this is to give you the opportunity to decide if counselling is for you and at no time will you be under any obligation to proceed.  

Thoughts of grief and loss

Grief can be felt in many ways and is not only experienced through the death of someone with whom we share a deep or personal connection.

Loss of any kind can feel like a gathering storm of emotions and we might feel that putting on a brave face and being strong will keep that storm at bay but unfortunately that doesn’t always work out and although I can’t reassure you that everything will be okay, I can be at your side in that storm as we work together to explore what your sense of grief or loss means to you 

Loss of any kind can be life changing and each of us is unique in how we cope with, respond to, and manage that loss. 

Loss can be the experience of a child leaving home, or the ending of a long-term relationship.  It might be having to leave a home which holds memories, or as a deep sense of sadness for what might have been. 

Loss can create a whole range of emotions and leave us in a such a state that we feel raw inside and unable to face life.

Holding a sense of loss touches so many lives and this was especially so during the Covid pandemic and subsequent restrictions on our lives.  For some, this was a weirdly surreal experience, while others tried to carry on as normal but some of you will have experienced unimaginable trauma.  Perhaps you may not have been able to say goodbye to your loved ones in the way you would have wanted, and maybe some of you feel that life will never be normal again.

Your experience of life may have left you feeling alone, exposed and vulnerable and if you feel that talking to me might be what you are looking for then please
