Lucia Hall, MSc, MBACP, EMDR-UK, UKPTS.
I believe that each person is a unique individual and ensure that therapy is designed to fit the individual, rather than trying to impose a particular approach or model on the person. I often begin with a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused approaches, which means that sessions are future-focused, strengths-based and goal-oriented, and add in other techniques as needed.
I am the director and co-founder of Integrative Cognitive Solutions Limited (ICS Ltd), which I run with my husband. At ICS we view each individual on a holistic basis. After careful assessment, I work with each client to develop a treatment plan to address their specific goals. Our professional Assessment Procedure forms the basis for this carefully constructed treatment programme. All options are discussed with the client and they remain an active participant throughout the counselling process.
I started my career as a Social Worker in the Trauma and Abuse unit in the USA. I have over 20 years of experience working in the mental health field.
