Lucy Newholm (MBACP)
Thank you for looking at my profile. I know it is not always easy to ask for support and deciding what's right for you can be difficult and confusing.
I understand that talking about feelings can be daunting. So it is my priority to offer a warm, welcoming, non-judgmental space where we can talk and explore difficult thoughts and feelings together.
You may have experienced an event or relationship issues which has left you with feelings of anxiety, depression, loss or any number of feelings that seem overwhelming or unmanageable. You may be experiencing some of these things but have no idea why. Perhaps you are feeling held back by negative or self-critical thoughts; or are just really stuck.
Therapy can help you to make sense of things and move towards change. It is an opportunity to get to know and understand yourself better and try different ways of doing things. I will support you to notice how you are feeling now and explore how past experiences or thoughts about the future may be affecting you in the present. I am also interested in how our experiences can be held in our bodies, often resulting in different physical feelings and sensations.
I have experience of working with people with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, loss, bereavement, identity, self confidence, low self-esteem and change.
I can offer short or longer term counselling depending on your individual needs.
If you are interested in coming to counselling, please get in touch via phone or email so that we can arrange an initial meeting. It is an opportunity for you to ask any questions, discuss what you would like to gain through therapy and decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
