Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Linda Finlay. I’m an integrative psychotherapist. If you want to know more about me, please click on the About Me tab.

I practice as an existential, relational-centred Integrative Psychotherapist and Supervisor (UKCP registered). Based in York, North Yorkshire (UK), I offer psychotherapy to individuals.  If you would like to know more about my private psychotherapy practice [click here]. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or just want to have a brief discussion without obligation.

If you would like to know more about the nature of ‘relational integrative psychotherapy’ [click here].


I am also an academic consultant. In my work with the Open University (www.open.ac.uk), I teach and have written for various counselling and psychology courses.  I am an international speaker and author best known for textbooks on qualitative, phenomenological research and reflexivity. My latest book was published by Sage early 2019 and is entitled ‘Practical Ethics in Counselling and Psychotherapy: A relational approach‘. See:  https://uk.sagepub.com/en-gb/eur/practical-ethics-in-counselling-and-psychotherapy/book262189

As part of my academic writing work (see my publications tab above), I am currently the Editor for the online journal European Journal for Qualitative Research in Psychotherapy.  [click here to access the journal]  http://ejqrp.org/

As a relational-centred phenomenologist, I have engaged in academic mentoring and clinical supervision with counsellors and psychotherapists (sometimes via Skype/Facetime).  If you are interested in my ideas related to the theory and practice of phenomenology and relational-centred work, please use the relevant tabs above and links to my various publications.
