About me

Hi, I’m Lucy. My approach to sessions is to create a warm and welcoming environment, which is safe for you to talk through your thoughts and feelings. I welcome you without judgement and work with you on who you are and what you want to understand about yourself. 

Not limited to, but some examples of issues I have worked with include:

  • Attachment styles 
  • Abandonment wounds
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues and break-ups
  • Being in and staying in unhealthy relationships
  • Lack of focus and direction in life
  • Relationship anxiety
  • Feelings of intense highs and lows
  • Fear and anxiety in work
  • Fear and anxiety in social settings
  • Lack of trust in own thoughts, feelings and decisions
  • University stress and experiences
  • Shame and guilt about prior actions and behaviour

With all these examples, we would work on why these may be so and how to work through them. We can also work together to understand what kind of tools or mindful practices might be best for you to help you cope and manage your mental health. I work with people to understand and process their past and present circumstances - how they impact who you are and how you approach life - working with people week by week to help regain control and be more present day to day. 

I understand that it can feel daunting and vulnerable to start therapy. With this in mind, I aim to create an environment that feels calm and gentle. I am also here to challenge and encourage, in a safe way, when it feels right to do so.

In therapy it is important to work with a counsellor with whom you feel safe and welcome. It is always ok to try out sessions with different people, and there is no pressure to sign up to a series of sessions - you are welcome to meet me and see how you feel. I also offer a free 15 minute introductory call to hear from each other, and for me to answer any questions you may have and to help you understand my approach to working with clients, to see if it makes sense for you. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
