About me

Hi, I'm Lucy, a qualified person-centred counsellor and interpersonal therapist. You may be thinking of starting counselling because there is a particular issue which is on your mind at the moment. Or, you may only have a vague feeling that you would like something to change. Either one is a valid place for starting therapy, and I will be happy to help you explore what is happening for you right now.

Person-centred counselling offers a safe, non-judgemental space for you to speak about and process your personal situation. Talking things through can be helpful in a number of ways. It can be a relief to speak about something that weighs on us heavily. Voicing our difficulty aloud can help us to understand it better, to see it from different angles. Talking can help us to think in new ways about a situation. It can also enable us to understand what we are feeling and why.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over four years of experience as a therapist, working within a range of NHS, Housing Association, and specialist Domestic Abuse counselling services. Alongside my private practice, I currently work part-time within an NHS Bereavement Therapy Service.

As a counsellor, I have specialist training and experience of supporting people affected by bereavement and loss, depression, trauma and abusive relationships. Other areas of professional interest for me include working with LGBTQ+ issues, interpersonal relationships and neurodiversity.

I come to counselling from a background of supporting adults in health and social care services. I have over eight years of experience in services for homelessness, mental health recovery, Domestic Abuse and survivors of Modern Slavery.

My qualifications:

  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) Accredited Practitioner – West Midlands IPT, 2023.
  • MSc Counselling & Psychotherapy – University of Salford, 2022.
  • Certificate of Graduate Skills in Counselling – University of Salford, 2019.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
