Lucy Okocha MBACP (ACCRED)
Life is an adventure you can not be lost. Only exploring a new path, is the strength you feel tomorrow for going forward...…...This is my integrative therapy.
I specialise in substance misuse, mental illness and Domestic Violence. I use different approaches, skills and techniques depending on your reasons for seeking counselling now and what you are hoping to gain through this. I place emphasis on a safe, empathic and collaborative therapeutic relationship, tailoring my approach to your unique experience.
This is counselling, my therapy, whatever you choose to call it….it works!
You have to give some to get some.
If you want to change your thinking to a healthy positive well-being, then you need to change your mind. Change your will power, and watch good positive things happen to you…..
I am not going to lie to you….it is tough changing what you’ve already learnt, and that behaviour can be changed if you choose to change it.
Good change is not tough, everything in life is good.
You’ve got the power to change that mind thought.
Step to it…..don’t wait around to take that first step.
You can do it. When you take that first step, I’ll be there to support you. You will be able to do it. We will be a team but I can’t make you do it, it is all on you. All I want is for you to change for you…..to step up and help yourself.
Believe in yourself, in fact
- L is for love, loyalty for you
- O is for obedience for you
- V is for victory for you
- E is for everlasting mental wellbeing for you
Make it happen, you’ve got the power to change, to be what, when, and how you choose in your life to be……..a positive way.
Don’t ever forget that…..If you keep up the good positive mind thinking, you’ll achieve what you want with my counselling support and tools to help you ongoing for life, which you’ll keep in your tool box to refer back too if and when you need it.
DON’T QUIT…..TRY YOUR BEST…..
This is my integrative therapy
YOU KNOW YOU…YOU KNOW IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE. I'LL BE THERE TO SUPPORT YOUR CHANGE
PEACE ONTO YOU !!!!!!!!

I offer a reduced fee of £30 for an initial appointment with no obligation for further sessions.
The initial appointment is different from subsequent counselling sessions in that I am asking questions about your current and past experiences and your goals for counselling.
It is also an opportunity for you to find out about the way I work and if you feel I am the right counsellor for you. Because I believe it is important to find the right counsellor.
£60 for sessions
Reduce fees available.
I offer sessions and initial appointments before working hours from 8am to 8pm.
Often it can be difficult to decide how many sessions to have and this may emerge as therapy progresses.
Whatever your reason(s) for wanting counselling - a relationship, an issue at work, a sense of unfulfillment and emptiness, feeling stuck, a bereavement - my aim is to offer a safe and non-judgemental space for you to process your experience and move forward in your life.
