About Linda Keen, Registered Psychotherapist MBACP

I have over 12 years' experience as a psychotherapist and counsellor, working in couples counselling, with individuals, parenting issues, teenagers and in family therapy. I have a wealth of experience in dealing with people of all ages and backgrounds in the UK and Ireland. Whatever you are facing right now, I would be pleased to meet with you and talk through the problems and offer a variety of solutions.

I work with a mindful, holistic and caring approach, and deal with a wide range of issues in a safe, confidential and totally non-judgmental atmosphere. My work with clients is predominantly solution-focused rather than problem-focused; an approach which enables powerful solutions for all of life's many challenges. Research shows this type of therapy successfully resolves issues in 4 to 5 sessions for 83% of clients, and I am one of the few therapists to have trained in this type of client-focused therapy.

In an on-going commitment to psychotherapeutic education, I have studied Counselling and Psychotherapy to BSc (Hons) degree level with Middlesex University, graduating with a First Class Honours. I also draw from my extensive studies in Positive Psychology and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). I incorporate mindfulness and relaxation techniques within a humanistic setting and include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) in my work with clients.

I have also worked successfully with clients in the areas of Phobias and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which can often be resolved in just 1 or 2 sessions using NLPCBT and relaxation training.

Conditions during sessions are created allowing clients to achieve effective and rapid results. CBT and SFBT have been shown to be successful in challenging situations such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, parenting issues, abuse, relationship conflict, family breakdown and working with young people, among many others. Solution-focused approaches involve:

  • Focusing on resources rather than problems
  • Looking for what is right rather than what is wrong
  • Negotiating effective goals and creating preferred futures
  • Building expectation of change rather than dwelling on unwanted pasts
  • Finding the client’s own way of changing

Parenting Skills: I specialise in helping parents acquire skills to assist them in dealing with children and the many challenges that raising a family presents. I believe that creating well-adjusted resilient children with good coping skills and high self-esteem is the foundation for happy people as they grow up. I also devised and created an online parenting skills course, which is available for download . The first ebook in the 12-part programme is offered FREE on the website.

ONLINE COUNSELLING: In this modern world of internet and video calling, consultations can also be conducted via Skype, telephone, What's App, Viber and email. In recent years, research¹ has shown that online counselling can be as effective as face-to-face therapy. Working with clients online, I adhere to the same BACP Code of Ethics as in face-to-face counselling and confidentiality is assured in exactly the same way as regular sessions.
