About me

'Space To Talk, Time To Listen' Confidential and effective emotional support for Adults, Young People and Children.

My name is Lucy and I am an accredited, experienced and supportive  counsellor/ psychotherapist working in the NHS and in private practice in Cardiff and The Vale of Glamorgan. The talking therapy space I offer is welcoming, relaxed and confidential and  fosters a feeling of emotional security, so that you will feel able to explore worries and concerns, both past and present and together we can discuss the link between events, thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Counselling can help to make sense of life difficulties, loss and change and create new ways to communicate in order to develop inner confidence, personal happiness and psychological balance. I have  been supporting adults and young people through unique experiences of anxiety , relationship  and body image difficulties,  phobias and panic symptoms for the past twelve years and in various settings.

My role is to listen attentively and with commitment and care in order to ' see the world through your eyes' and create a sense of relational trust. My belief is that this then inspires greater psychological strength and personal equiibrium, and in turn, the possibility to create new life choices, harness personal potential and a positive, meaningful existence for every individual regardless of class, gender , age or sexuality.

How I work

I work Integratively with clients, which means incorporating a range and blend of theoretical ideas, (CBT, Psychodynamic, Humanistic) to suit the personality, needs and concerns of each individual in order to respect their unique experience and life story. I believe that the fundamental mechanism for change and choice, is not simply what is offered theoretically by the counsellor, but the way in which this is transmitted, by a positive therapeutic interchange.

Approaching a stranger for support can feel daunting, but I always offer a short telephone conversation, as a chance to connect in the first instance, and then an initial no-obligation consultation where the opportunity to feel comfortable is established.

I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions depending, and both short-term and longer term options for counselling are considered depending on individual need. Session times are flexible in order to accommodate lifestyle demands. I also offer sessions in conjunction with the Employee Assistance  Programme.

My Bonvilston therapy room is situated in a peaceful, rural setting surrounded by trees and spacious fields and offers a convenient 'escape; from the bustle of the city.
