About

70FA8244-2D75-4F69-959F-94DE36C3D2C7Hi, I’m Lindsay Schofield, a Consultant Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer.  I’ve worked in private practice for 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 endeavour to 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 have a set of books about dissociative identity disorder due for publication with Routledge in Autumn 2021.  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.

I am accredited with the BABCP, the BACP (Senior), the ACC (Counsellor/Supervisor), the NCS (Senior/Supervisor) and the NCP (Senior).  I am also a member of the ESTD and a SCID-D trained assessor.  In my spare time, I enjoy a menagerie of animals and nature.

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

Supervision: I enjoy working with other therapists to support them and to help them develop to their best potential.  I’ve completed advanced qualifications in supervision to help me to 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.
