About Me

My name is Lyn Tonks BSc MA HG Dip P. I'm a registered counsellor working in Wilmslow.

Following a first degree BSc Hons (Microbiology) from Edinburgh University, I gained experience by working in the medical field in various countries.

I had a career break to bring up my family, during which time I retrained in Management skills. That led on to working in a busy engineering consultancy for 13 years. During that time I often found myself listening to people’s problems, which led me to train as a fully qualified counsellor (MA in Counselling).

In recent years I have trained in Human Givens Therapy and acquired the Diploma in Human Givens therapy (HG Dip P).

For the past 30 years I have also worked in a voluntary pastoral capacity, being available to people from all walks of life, to listen patiently and sympathetically to their concerns.

In addition to private practice, I work in a voluntary capacity in a local charitable counselling organisation, Protem, in Didsbury.

Overall, I think people see me as someone who, through life’s experience alongside continued learning, has developed a mature approach to dealing with their issues and concerns.
