Lynn Temple BA (Hons), MBAPC

I am a Person-Centred Counsellor specialising in grief, loss and bereavement.

I offer online and telephone counselling within the United Kingdom, which enables you to access support within the comfort of your own home.

Face to face sessions can also be arranged depending on circumstances and location within the Norfolk area.

Please text or email me to arrange your free initial telephone consultation, during which we will work together to agree the form of counselling sessions which are best suited to your individual needs, whether that is online, by phone, or face to face.

How can I help You?

Experiencing loss of any kind is about understanding that how we adapt to life and try to exist in this new and different world without our loved one, or how to live in our changed circumstances, is uniquely our experience.

There are no rules when you suffer grief, loss, or bereavement, there is no right or wrong way to be and sometimes we need support with that, and that is what I can offer. As a person-centred counsellor, my commitment is to work with you in a partnership of mutual respect, focusing on what you feel is important.

About my sessions

I work with adults over 18 years of age 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. If that happens there is no penalty and I do not charge for missed sessions.

About me

I have a degree in Person-Centred Counselling and am also 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.

It was personal experience of debilitating and prolonged grief and loss that drew me to specialise in this field and move into private practice. For the past three years, I have also been working as a bereavement volunteer with a leading, national charity.

I understand that your experience of grief, loss, or bereavement is uniquely yours and exploring together what that feels like and means to you in a sensitive, empathic, and non-judgemental way is what I can offer you.

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 a yearning 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 has been especially so with the Covid pandemic and lockdowns. There are those for whom this has been a weirdly surreal experience, while others have 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 sense of loss may leave you feeling alone, exposed and vulnerable.
