About

colour 2Hi, I’m Lindsay Schofield, a Consultant Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer.  I’ve worked in private practice for over two decades, providing treatment and support to individuals and couples, helping them with a wide range of emotional and mental health challenges.

My approach is strongly relational and I partner with individuals to help them make sense of their challenges, to identify their goals, and then to purposefully integrate theories and interventions to help them make the changes they want and need.

I’ve specialised for working with trauma and dissociation, and published a set of books (a picture book, and a guidebook), about dissociative identity disorder with Routledge in January 2022.  I have also written and delivered my own workshops in the UK and internationally, and provide supervision to practitioners working in different contexts, clinical and pastoral.  With a particular interest in promoting and supporting professional self-care, I have developed material on Compassion Fatigue – Sustaining Self.

Accreditations/Qualifications: I am accredited with the BABCP, the BACP (Senior), the ACC (Counsellor/Supervisor), the NCS (Senior/Supervisor) and the NCIP (Senior).  I am also a member of the ESTD, the ISSTD and a SCID-D trained assessor.  I have a love of learning and in addition to my initial qualifications and ongoing CPD, I have an MSc in Applied Trauma Psychology, a PG Diploma in CBT, a PQ Certificate in Supervision and advanced qualifications in EMDR (Level 3), PICT (Advanced Diploma/QC & former Program Director) and LI (Level 2/Peggy Pace).  In my spare time, I enjoy a menagerie of animals and nature!

Specialisms: Trauma; Dissociative Disorders; Supervision; Depression; Anxiety; Couples work

Therapy: I work with individuals of all ages, and also with couples.  It’s important to me that each person feels heard, understood and supported as they work towards creating change.

Supervision: I enjoy working with practitioners, to support them and to help them develop to their best potential.  I’ve completed advanced qualifications in supervision to help me serve supervisees well.  For more information, please follow the supervision link above.

Online: I am willing, able and qualified to offer therapy and supervision online – a lifeline to so many when life and circumstances are restricting.  Please click here for more information
