About me

Hello, my name is Lucy and I can provide a friendly, supportive and highly experienced counselling service for you.

I have been providing mental health support for over a decade and established my own counselling support service in 2015. 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.

Successful change 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 pschotherapeutic support.

Here are some recent reviews:

“I came to Lucy after feeling a tangled mess of emotions, low mood, stress and anxiety. I couldn’t understand why I was feeling the way I was and knew that I needed help but didn’t know how to ask for it. Lucy has helped me understand the help I needed and how to unravel my emotions and deal with them accordingly, she is a wonderful person with a caring nature and is very professional and easy to talk with. I would highly recommend Lucy.”

"I had a traumatic childhood which I bottled up for years and which has impacted on my personal relationships. Having reached boiling point I knew it was time to seek help. I could not have chosen a better person to have told my story to. I now feel that the book is closed on those dark days and a new chapter has begun. Lucy has been very professional in every aspect of dealing with my scarred past and I have no reservations in recommending her services”

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.

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.

Client 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 - 5 sessions)

"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)

“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.”
