Lucy Peppiatt, Counsellor, BA (Hons), Dip. Counselling, MBACP
I am an experienced person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Chiswick, helping people with anxiety and depression, especially those with low self esteem or with family relationship issues, both in their past and present. I offer one to one weekly counselling sessions, on either a long or short-term basis.
Difficult personal issues can leave you feeling overwhelmed by life, and can cause crippling anxiety and depression or leave you feeling lost and unhappy. Such inner turmoil I know, can make life very difficult. I also know how hard it can be to talk about, especially to people close to you.
My Counselling Approach
As a person-centred therapist, my work is centred around creating a therapeutic relationship that builds trust, so you feel safe enough to overcome your fears to explore what is troubling you. Through developing such a counselling relationship, I can help you process what’s going on for you and your emotions. Helping you to understand yourself better can help relieve your distress and give you clarity to help you overcome the difficulties you are experiencing.

Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), and my work abides by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
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.
