About me

Hello, I am a BACP registered humanistic and integrative counsellor, here to listen to and validate you, and support you in exploring your needs and sense of self.

Perhaps you are finding relationships tricky,  or feeling anxious and low, and want to reach a deeper understanding of yourself and who you are, and gain more self-confidence. You may be going through a tough time and feel that you need help coping,  and need someone you feel safe with to open up to

Safe and trusting relationship

It can be daunting finding the right counsellor, someone that you feel you can build a trusting relationship with, and it is my priority that you feel safe, grounded and comfortable talking to me.

As a humanistic counsellor, I am client led and person-centred in approach, listening to you empathically and without judgement, bringing genuine warmth and compassion to our relationship. I can also integrate counselling approaches according to your needs and what feels right and safe to you. This might include looking at the past, including childhood experience, and how this has impacted you as a person. It may be that you feel very unsafe looking at the past, and instead we focus on your present experience,  integrating mindfulness techniques to help you feel more grounded. We might also look at ways you can introduce more self-care into your life, and explore any obstacles to this. 

For a free 15 minute telephone chat, please contact me on 07394 946427, or email to arrange. If you would rather skip the telephone chat and meet me in person first, we can arrange an initial 50 minute assessment session. 

If you decide that you would like some counselling sessions with me, I will support you in exploring your needs, in order to establish a comfortable and safe space for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you

Lucy

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
