Hi - I’m Lindsay, I’d like to help if I can...

Currently I’m offering distance appointments, using Zoom, VSEE or telephone, and expect to return to face-to face work soon.

I’m a Consultant Psychotherapist, Supervisor, Trainer and Programme Director for Penny Parks Training and am accredited with the BABCP, BACP (Senior), ACC (Supervisor), NCP (Senior) as well as with the NCS (Senior/Supervision). My specialisms include childhood trauma, dissociation, couples therapy, supervision, compassion fatigue and resourcing therapists through training.

I’ve written two books to help professionals and survivors demystify the complexities of dissociative identity disorder: Understanding Dissociative Identity Disorder: A Guidebook for Survivor (, and a Picture book: Our House: Making Sense of Dissociative Identity Disorder - 1st Editio ( They’re available from the publisher (Routledge) and most bookstores including Amazon. I also teach a trauma therapy model (PICT), that helps therapists support and enable clients to move on from these experiences – particularly those involving childhood abuse.

THERAPY – It’s important to me that you feel heard, understood and supported as you work towards creating enduring change. I’ve completed a wide range of training to help me work with you, to make sense of your challenges and to purposefully integrate theories and interventions to meet your needs. I work with clients of all ages, and with a wide range of difficulties.

SUPERVISION – I enjoy working with other therapists to support them and help them develop to their best potential. I’ve completed advanced qualifications in supervision to help me to serve supervisees well.

TRAINING – I write and deliver workshops to professionals nationally and internationally. I’m also the Programme Director for Penny Parks Training, teaching the specialist and effective PICT Diploma and workshops. (PICT is a complete trauma model that enables practitioners to provide support and interventions to resolve the legacy of trauma and abuse. Please follow the training links on this website for more information).
