About us

Lucy and Molly are both qualified person-centred counsellors and members of the BACP. We offer counselling for anyone seeking support, short or long term, from our private practices in Denton, Newhaven and Lewes.  We also offer one-to-one WRAP.

How can counselling help?

There are many reasons you may be reading this page. Perhaps you are searching for some answers, some support, a safe place where you can talk, offload, explore options and choices. Perhaps something has happened to you or someone you care about, recently or in the past, that has left you feeling lost, uncertain, traumatised, angry, hurt, unsure what to do next…

All these and many other reasons bring people to therapy. Sometimes we need to be able to talk to someone who will listen without judgement, someone genuine who can hear our story and offer us empathy and understanding. As person-centred counsellors that is at the heart of what we do.

Lucy Tucknott:

First and foremost I am a human being with lived experience and this mutual connection is where we start our therapeutic journey together. I will offer you empathy, compassion, congruence and a safe space to explore whatever you bring to our sessions without judgement.

My private practice is in Denton, Newhaven. I work with long standing issues as well as situations that have just arisen for you.

After qualification I have undertaken training in Trauma Therapy with Babette Rothschild, one of the leading trainers in this field of work. I have specialist knowledge in Somatic Trauma Therapy and other approaches to therapy. This means together we can explore an approach that suits you.

I have experience in working with young adults and adults. I am also a group facilitator, WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Plan) trainer and facilitator and LGBT+ friendly.

I offer a free half hour consultation which provides us with a space to meet and also explore what you are looking for in therapy. Additionally it is an opportunity to ask any questions.

Molly Booth:

My core training is in person-centred counselling, at the heart of which is the belief that everyone has within them the resources to enable growth and change.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental, professional space for you to explore whatever it is that is troubling you.  There are many reasons why you may choose to talk to a counsellor:

  • You are struggling with something and you need to talk it through with someone impartial
  • You are feeling stuck, lost, uncertain, anxious, fearful, angry, hurt… perhaps this is all you can think about
  • You have reached a crossroads in your life and you are not sure which way to go
  • You are dealing with loss of any kind – bereavement, relationship breakdown, infertility, your health, your job, your identity…
  • Life has happened and it feels like everything is up in the air
  • You are feeling overwhelmed, pulled in too many directions, trapped
  • At times we can feel very alone, unsure whether we have the inner resources to make any changes, let alone grow.  It takes courage to reach out and ask for help.  As your counsellor, I will listen to you and support you to explore whatever you need to with empathy, congruence and non-judgemental acceptance.

“When I have been listened to and when I have been heard, I am able to re-perceive my world in a new way and to go on. It is astonishing how elements that seem insoluble become soluble when someone listens, how confusions that seem irremediable turn into relatively clear flowing streams when one is heard.” – Carl R. Rogers

I continue to develop my practice by attending workshops, training courses, supervision, reading and researching – all of this supports me both professionally and personally. And I learn from everyone I meet. Over the years as a WRAP Facilitator, I have had the privilege of working with hundreds of people from all walks of life.  The conversations and discussions I have been part of have taught me so much about what it is to be human!

And that is what I am – a human being with life-experience. My own self-development has led me on a path towards mindfulness meditation, self-compassion practices, yoga and conscious parenting. I keep learning and using WRAP in my life to support me in all that I do.

I am passionate about offering a safe space to support and facilitate self-exploration and discovery, helping people to find their voice and their truth.
