I am a fully insured and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and on the Accredited Register of Professional Standards.
I hold a current DBS certificate.
As well as providing an established counselling and psychotherapy service I also provide training to student counsellors.
You will find that I work with you to ensure you get the most out of your time with me. With firm foundations in Person Centred Counselling, I work pluralistically most commonly adding elements from;
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Solution Focused Therapy, Psycho-education, Transactional Analysis (TA), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Schema Theory, Attachment Theory and Brief intervention theory
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Feeling sad
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Personality disorders
- Postnatal depression
- Relationship issues
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work using the pluralistic approach which recognises that there are many contributing factors to why we seek therapy and many different ways to help a problem. Recognising this increases the potential to make improvements.
I keep the foundations of my therapeutic work within the person centred approach and I am by nature a very analytical thinker. These elements combine and naturally influence the way I work.

“I felt like Lucy really tried to get to know me as a whole person even in the short time that we had, she tried to understand my problems and also the things that I feel good about. Whilst talking to her I felt like the problems I am having are important and valid which was great because it is easy to tell yourself otherwise. It was so good to find someone that I could feel comfortable explaining exactly how I felt, she gave me time to think and helped me when I found it difficult to understand my thoughts. Seeing Lucy has given me hope that I can do something about my anxieties and beginning to understand them has made me feel much calmer starting university”.
"Working with Lucy helped me not only with everything I went to talk about originally but with other matters and issues I didn't realise I needed to look into, talk about and explore”.
"I had never attended counselling before but I have found these therapy sessions so helpful and would not hesitate to recommend Lucy to others".
"My Counsellor, Lucy was very kind and supportive, not judgmental in any way. I felt she cared about my wellbeing, I wish I could have seen her years ago. Thank you - you saved me in 2015"
"As I live alone, far from my family, I needed someone to talk to. Having someone who I can share my feelings, thoughts and behaviors with, who has no self intent, has been incredibly helpful. Lucy is non-judgmental and empathetic and allowed me to be totally honest, not thinking about someone's reactions, as I would with a friend or family member. I would definitely recommend Lucy as a counsellor".
