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 and ask any questions you may have about counselling and what you can expect.
My job is to help you unravel the sometimes confusing thoughts and feelings you've been keeping bottled up. I am non-judgemental, respectful and compassionate. I understand that finding the right counsellor can be difficult and believe the relationship we develop is essential to build trust and safety so that we can explore and understand your challenges. I value everything that makes each of us unique and strive to understand your experiences and needs from your perspective, supporting you as we work together.
There are times in life when we feel out of control, anxious, burdened by our thoughts & feelings. My job is to listen, without bias, helping you find answers. I’m passionate about good mental health, supporting those who are struggling and through my own life experiences I’ve learned the benefits of having a space where you can explore safely and confidentially.

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