Still Waters Counselling

Therapeutic help...


In a safe and confidential setting you will be offered time and support to;

  • Explore your thoughts, feelings and concerns
  • Come to terms with accepting things that cannot be changed
  • Be empowered to change what is possible
  • Reach a point of peace in your being


For individuals and groups. As a supervisor I work to meet the needs of counsellors as they work towards or maintain their accreditation and ensure best practice at all times.

This would include:

  • Report writing
  • Guidance
  • Telephone support between sessions
  • Case study support

Linda Staines

MSc. Family and Systemic Psychotherapist

Linda's background is in broadcasting and teaching. She has worked extensively with families affected by domestic abuse and within the youth justice system. 

Family therapy can help people in close relationship talk about and understand each others' experiences and needs. Research shows its effectiveness in a wide variety of situations where families are experiencing difficulties. We will agree a way of working together, considering each family's unique culture, beliefs, ages and life experiences. Sometimes it doesn't take many sessions for families to find a way forward.
