My name is Denise Lyttle, I am a grounded and qualified Humanistic Counsellor whose studied modalities include Person-Centred Therapy, Gestalt therapy, and Transactional Analysis, I have the asset of a theoretical tool-chest that lends itself to considering how your past may determine and affect your life today.
I value difference and deliver a multi-cultural and diverse service that will support you on your path of self-discovery. I am not able to fix you as I don’t have all of the answers, but I will support you in any uncertain and problematic places that you want to explore. I have experience of supporting people with general anxiety, physical and mental abuse, emotional conflicts, shame, depression, low mood, lack of confidence and self-esteem, grief, bereavement (NHS & community-based), loneliness and lack of focus, resolving trauma, managing addictions and all areas of difficulty that these obstacles or problems can bring to the fore.
I am a primary tutor on the Humanistic BSc (Hons) Counselling and the Introductory Therapeutic Skills courses at the Metanoia Institute in London. As well as being in a position to enthuse my conviction in the value of experiential value-based learning to my students, this challenging role helps keep my practice informed and current.
I am passionate about many things in life and right up there among my most fervent passions is my work with horses. I am an EAGALA Certified Equine Assisted Facilitator and know that being great communicators and mirrors of human behaviour, horses can have something to teach each one of us without the judgment associated with human people to people interaction.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy work in accordance with their Ethical Framework and I support my practice by continuing with my professional development on a regular basis (CPD), using mindfulness techniques, and by attending regular clinical supervision sessions.
