Welcome to Happy Hatching Mind
My name is Lyn O’Callaghan.

I am a Chrysalis trained counsellor and have completed the AIM Awards Level 3 in Hypnotherapy & Counselling Skills and AIM Awards Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I have over 25 years’ experience of working with children 0-18 years, parents and adult individuals.

Primarily, I use Person-Centred therapy techniques, although I am an integrative counsellor, which means I will incorporate other approaches, such as CBT and NLP, in order to ensure a truly tailored counselling experience for my client.

As well as my counselling & hypnotherapy qualifications, I hold BA (Hons) in Childhood & Youth Studies; therefore, 
as well as working with adults, I specialise in working with children 0-18 years.

I am able to accommodate face-to-face sessions, either in my office or walk & talk, as well as via email, instant messaging, telephone and video call.

For each of the styles of counselling I am able to accommodate them as follows:
I have an office available with off road parking

I use Egress, which is a secure email encryption programme

instant messaging:
I use WhatsApp which has end to end encryption

I use Google Duo or WhatsApp, which has end to end encryption

In all client work, I adhere to the National Counselling Society (NCS) Code of Ethics, which can be found online, and I have a full and clear DBS check.
