Hello, my name is Lucy and I can provide a supportive, accepting and friendly counselling service for you.
I have successfully helped my clients to overcome anxiety, depression, stress, loss, loneliness, social isolation, low self esteem, anger, relationship problems and other similar issues.
This can be achieved in a way that suits your needs. I can provide short term, solution focused counselling, or if you prefer, I can provide medium to long term therapeutic support.
Here are some recent reviews:
- "Lucy held my hand and helped me find the strength within myself to overcome a difficulty in my life. She was my saviour." (F November 2017)
- "It took a lot for me to pick up the phone after I needed help, Lucy was brilliant. After having 8 sessions with her I am in a far better place and more relaxed. Lucy does not judge and will listen and then help with the solution." (M October 2017)
(More reviews can be found in the additional info section)
I will feel honoured to be a part of your journey and will listen to your problems in a completely non-judgemental way, helping you to talk about whatever may be troubling you, and providing insight to help you gain self acceptance & self-confidence and make positive change.
I have a particular interest in helping adults struggling with social anxiety and/or low self esteem.

I am a fully insured and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and an accredited member of the National Counselling Society. I am on the Accredited Register of Professional Standards.
I hold a current DBS certificate.
As well as providing an established counselling and psychotherapy service I also provide training to student counsellors.
You will find that I work with you to ensure you get the most out of your time with me. With firm foundations in Person Centred Counselling, I work pluralistically most commonly adding elements from;
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Solution Focused Therapy, Psych-education, Transactional Analysis (TA), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Schema Theory, Attachment Theory and Brief intervention theory
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Anger management
- Asperger's syndrome
- Bipolar disorder/Manic depression
- Domestic violence
- Feeling sad
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Panic disorder
- Personality disorders
- Postnatal depression
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work using the pluralistic approach which recognises that there are many reasons why we seek therapy and many different ways to help a problem. Recognising this increases the potential to make positive and welcome change.
I keep the foundations of my therapeutic work within the person centred approach and I am by nature a very analytical thinker. These elements combine and naturally influence the way I work.

“I had never attended counselling before but I have found these therapy sessions so helpful and would not hesitate to recommend Lucy to others.”
“Lucy was very kind and supportive, not judgmental in any way. I felt she cared about my wellbeing, I wish I could have seen her years ago.”
“Lucy is non-judgmental and empathetic and allowed me to be totally honest, I would definitely recommend Lucy as a counsellor.”
“Seeing Lucy has given me hope that I can do something about my anxieties and beginning to understand them has made me feel much calmer.”
