Lucy Meade Dip-Couns (MBCAP)
Hello, my name is Lucy, sometimes in life we find it hard to reach out for help, fear of judgment, trust and lack of understanding can be reasons why getting help can be difficult.
I am a person centered therapist, this means I will not judge you, I will listen and work with you to help you understand your feelings. I have experience in helping people who have faced difficulties including, low self-worth/self-esteem, anxiety, loss, Trauma and addiction; stress, lack of trust, grief, anger, relationship issues and conflict, work related problems, low mood, depression, but this list is not exhaustive.
I am committed to offering you a safe and supportive environment which enables us to explore your personal difficulties. We will work together at your pace, taking gentle steps, finding a way forward. You will experience a confidential and empathic service, free from judgement so that we can explore what is happening and help you work towards personal growth and change.

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.
