Lucy Early MBACP; MBPSs
I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy in Greenwich and London Bridge. This is a confidential space where we can talk about what is bothering you and work towards any goals you set in the short or long term. My training in psychological therapies embraces different therapeutic models so we can explore the dilemmas that you experience in the way that suits you.

I have extensive experience of working in a variety of mental health settings including the NHS and in charities for over twenty years. I have been in private practice for over fifteen years and worked with many different people who bring a wide range of concerns.
My training in psychological therapies and counselling psychology means that I work from a person-centred perspective, which puts the therapeutic relationship first, but can bring insights from a range of perspectives.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
My research is in the field of addictions. There are many ways into addiction and many ways out of it, and as with other problems, recovery is an individual journey. It is important to explore what role the addiction plays in your life. My focus is on your unique and personal experience which will point the direction towards a recovery where you can make adjustments to regain those aspects of your life which have been affected.

At an initial assessment we will explore what brings you to therapy and whether you want to work with me. If so we will agree on terms and conditions. We will meet weekly for 50 minutes and in a dialogue which will focus on your life look at the dilemmas you are experiencing from a number of perspectives until you reach the solution you are looking for.
I offer concessions and work with students, trainees, and senior citizens.
