About Me

Background to LPL:

Dr Clare Lennie CPsychol AFBPsS is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I have over 30 year’s experience of teaching, lecturing, consultancy and private practice/ service development in the profession of Psychology.

The work of Lennie Psychology Ltd. falls into 4 main areas of business:

Developing well-being and psychological support for staff and clients in small to medium sized businesses. Previous clients have included The Firefighters’ Charity, The Police Treatment Centres, Lancashire Constabulary, Scotland Yard, The Christie Clinic in collaboration with HCA International, The Methodist Housing Association, The Community Gateway (Preston) and working with premier league football referees with Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL). 

Academic and Clinical Supervision

I am Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester, as such I undertake academic supervision of Doctoral theses, research activities and lecturing. I am part of an on-going steering group for the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at the University of Manchester, a programme that I created in 2010. This programme was the 13th such Doctorate in the UK accredited by the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council.

I also lecture regularly at the Universities of Manchester. I undertake clinical supervision with Doctoral students from the University of Manchester and Masters students from the Universities of Salford and UCLan.

Training & Consultancy

LPL also evaluates, develops and supports well-being and psychological support for staff and clients in small to medium sized businesses.

Academic and Clinical Supervision

As with my client work, I feel it is important that supervisees feel comfortable in their relationship with me to share the celebrations and struggles in their client work.

Personal Therapy

Deciding to undertake counselling is not an easy thing to do, and I view it as a huge privilege to be invited into my clients’ lives at a point where they are perhaps struggling. 

Personal and professional development

I also offer professional and personal development work in supporting post qualification Counsellors and Counselling Psychologists in developing their professional development.
