Hello and welcome to my profile. My name is Lucy and I offer a friendly, warm and professional counselling service to emotionally support you to explore your feelings, emotions and awareness which can enable growth and change.
I provide counselling in a safe, confidential, discreet and non judgmental space. My aim is for us to build a therapeutic relationship where you feel secure and supported. I will work with you to explore your thoughts, feelings and responses and enable you to realise your own inner resources and acquire a deeper understanding of yourself.
As well as offering general counselling, I have a special interest in working with loss. This could be bereavement, loss of a job, relationship, health, or loss of freedom. Helping people to navigate their own unique grief process to get to a more peaceful place.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully trained Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and a registered member of BACP.
I have worked in public service for most of my career, in the Police, Fire service, NHS and more recently within a Domestic Abuse organisation.
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.
