Lucy Thompson BACP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Otley
I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist working with individuals and couples.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can provide a supportive safe place where healing and new insight can take place.
You may be feeling stuck or confused, lonely, sad or distressed. Whatever you are feeling it can be very powerful when we know we are being heard and deeply understood by another.
I offer a warm and supportive space that accepts you and what you bring to counselling. I try hard to understand what is happening for you and your experience of it. Being valued in this way can be very freeing and affirming.
Whatever has led you to seek counselling at this time I would welcome having a conversation with you to see if I may be able to help.
How I may help you.
I have gained my experience through counselling many clients whilst working for a variety of charities.
These are some of the areas that I may be able to help you with.....
Bereavement and Loss
I spent many years working with Cruse Bereavement Care supporting people
with their grief and loss.
I believe grief and loss can also be present in many areas of peoples lives not
just bereavement, especially during times of transition, change or endings.
Whilst at Cancer Support in Bradford I worked with people who were
bereaved, many facing cancer as well as those supporting loved ones through
treatment and recovery.
Having been a carer I feel passionately that this role can be life changing and
very impacting for the carer themselves. It can raise many emotions that may
be helpful to process through counselling.
Mental Health and Wellbeing
During my time at Leeds MIND and Aura Counselling in Keighley, I
experienced how everyday living could be overwhelming for many people
and that counselling offered them an invaluable space.
Family Life and Parenting
I have a background in working with families and young people prior to
counselling. I have supported and counselled children and young people at
Place2be and Cruse Bereavement Care and as a parent myself know the
challenges family life can bring.
Relationship and Couples Counselling
I trained with and have worked for Marriage Care.
Using Emotionally Focused Therapy and Attachment Theory we would work
together to focus on creating a stronger bond and connection between you
both and a greater sense of security in the relationship.
