Lucy Bradley - You And Me By The Sea Counselling
Sometimes life takes us down a different path which we couldn’t have predicted, either by our own or another person’s choices. When this happens, we can be left feeling all kinds of emotions, perhaps you feel overwhelmed, uncertain, stuck or unable to make sense of what is happening. You might find yourself needing more than just a friend or a family listening ear.
I am a qualified, registered Counsellor with experience of working with adults and adolescents.
I work in a Person-Centred way and we would work together in an environment which is safe and non-judgemental, where you can be yourself and work through your issues.
I offer counselling for a broad range of concerns, including relationship difficulties/breakdown, anxiety/depression, stress at work and personal development.
I hope that through our work together, you can develop a better sense of yourself, discover new tools and techniques to help overcome the problems that stop you from moving forward with your life.
My working hours are Thursday evenings (5:00 pm – 8:00 pm)/some other evenings are also available currently.
My practice is to arrange an initial session, for which I charge £20.00, this helps us to work out whether we would be able to work productively together. For each session following is £35.00. Due to Covid-19 I am offering Zoom or telephone counselling which is £30.
I welcome enquiries from both adults and young people (16+).
Training, qualifications & experience
I am qualified in Person Centred counselling.
Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I also work as a Volunteer Counsellor at Herne Bay Counselling Service.
Counselling should be a regular commitment, our sessions will last for 50 minutes on a weekly basis, however many sessions you wish to attend. The length of time we work together can be short or long term, which can be reviewed as our work together progresses.
Throughout my work as a Counsellor, I have seen many clients with all kinds of presenting issues. All of my work is supervised by a Supervisor who is a member of BACP and follows their code of ethics of which I am also a member.
BACP Registered Member.
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.
