Lucy Flannery MA, BA(Hons), MBACP (Accred)
I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist offering short and longer term work for both individual counselling and couple counselling in my private practice in Central and West London. Approaching therapy for the first time can feel daunting and confusing. People from all walks of life come to see me for many reasons. Whether your having difficulties with communication within a relationship, suffering bereavement, coping with feelings of anger, looking for meaning in your life, finding it difficult to make decisions, depression or anxiety, taking the time to consider what's important to you will help you make better sense of your situation.
As an Integrative practitioner I will aim to provide a safe, confidential environment and through the establishment of a trusting therapeutic relationship will help you to explore past formative experiences and future concerns, which may be impacting your current choices and decisions, and in the ways that you form and maintain relationships with others, and how you see, think and feel about yourself.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an initial no-obligation appointment. The initial session is an opportunity for us to spend a little time deciding if we feel comfortable with each other and would like to work together.
