Penny Lawson Counselling


Are you feeling overwhelmed or lost in response to life events? It's easy to get stuck in a vicious cycle, feeling unsure of how to move on and doubting yourself. I'll help you rediscover your strengths and abilities and maybe recognise and develop new ones. I have experience of supporting people with a wide range of issues, some of which include: depression anxiety diagnosed conditions such as bipolar relationships bereavement and loss low confidence poor self esteem and many others. I appreciate everyone's situation is unique and believe we can all develop the skills and confidence we need to move forward with our lives. However most of us need a helping hand from time to time and I can provide that through counselling. Whatever your issue you can bring it to our sessions and be listened to with respect and in confidence. As a fully qualified and insured Integrative counsellor I adapt how I work to suit your needs. I have worked with the NHS and local charities on both a long and short term basis. As a counsellor and psychotherapist I work successfully with adults, young people and children. I respond to enquiries within 24 hours and provide appointments within a week of your first contact. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical guidelines.

What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy supporting people and seeing them move forwards in their lives.
I get a real sense of satisfaction when I see people change from feeling overwhelmed or stuck to finding the confidence to make changes and feel comfortable in their own skin. I joke that I like to work myself redundant because that is my aim.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I'd had some disappointing experiences when I'd needed help in my own life, when I'd had a difficult situation and bereavement to deal with. I wanted to provide others with the help and support that I'd wanted for myself.
I enjoy the freedom of being able to work privately which means I can be far more flexible than large organisations or charities. So if one of my clients is feeling well we can have a break from counselling sessions, knowing that if things get too much then they can get back in touch.

Why should our clients choose you?

I believe the counselling relationship is the most important aspect of finding the right therapist. It is important to find someone you can feel comfortable talking with as that is one less barrier to worry about.
The testimonials I receive from previous clients demonstrates how useful people have found my help:
"Penny has been a godsend and I will never let her go!! I have had a number of counsellors in the past, and I am so relieved to have found the right one...I would LOVE to recommend you.. in my opinion, everyone should have Penny in their lives."

"I have become the person I really want to be and this is....only the beginning....try it, it could change your life"

"you're helpful and calm and understanding and listen..."

Counselling FAQs

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
