Feedback

When life feel unmanageable, we can feel overwhelmed and troubled, unable to deal with our emotions.

Talking in a safe, quiet and non- judgemental space can help to make effective changes in our lives and enhance our well- being so that life feels less difficult and better understood. Exploring unresolved issues and conflicts can reduce fears and anxieties leading to the experience of a more fulfilled life. I work primarily in a psychodynamic way, letting you take the lead whilst creating an environment of warmth, empathy and understanding.

Beginning therapy can feel like a big step and can feel frightening as well as hopeful.

My professional background before training as a Counsellor was in Education. As such I have a particular interest in working with children and young people.

Our first session will be 50 minutes long and is available face-to-face, over Zoom or the telephone, depending on what feels most comfortable and suitable for you. This session consultation is an opportunity for us to talk through your reasons for seeking therapy, for me to gather a brief background.

Ongoing sessions would then be weekly and last 50 minutes.

The way Lucy approaches our sessions makes me feel heard and more content with my issues and I always feel comfortable coming.

Counselling helped with my confidence. Counselling gave strategies. I enjoyed my sessions because it is good to talk.

Lucy has been talking to our son who has been experiencing different forms of anxiety.

Lucy was immediately able to create a connection with our son and identify what he has been experiencing and mechanisms to support him.

The service is highly professional and great value.
