About me

Thank you for being courageous and taking the first step towards finding your counsellor. I’m Lucinda and I welcome you to get in touch. I offer a free 15 minute initial consultation by phone or zoom,  so that you are able to talk to me and ask any questions you may have.

About Counselling: There are times in life when we feel out of control, anxious, burdened by our thoughts & feelings. I offer a confidential space, listen, without bias, helping you find answers. I am non-judgemental, respectful and compassionate. I understand that finding the right counsellor can be difficult and believe the relationship we develop builds trust and safety so that we can explore and understand your challenges. We are all unique and working as an integrative therapist I tailor each session to suit you and your needs, my job is to help unravel the sometimes confusing thoughts and feelings you've been keeping bottled up.

Availability and price: I work from The Banbury Therapy Centre, the Chipping Norton Health Centre, Online and by phone Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays and sessions last 50 minutes. The cost is £50 for individuals or £75 for couples, although I do offer a sliding scale if needed and am happy to discuss this with you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling and am currently continuing my training with an MA in counselling and Psychotherapy, as well as a previous BA Hons. I also have an ACTO accredited qualification to offer online and telephone counselling and a NCS certificate in Couples Counselling.

I am a Member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and abide by their ethical framework.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The rooms I use are upstairs but a downstairs room can be available on request.
