About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Lucy and I help people over 18 who are struggling after a bereavement or the loss of something important to them such as a job or relationship, and support them through the difficulties these life-changing losses can generate. I also help people who are struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression or stress which can cause us to feel overwhelmed by some of our thoughts and feelings or take away things like our self-confidence, sense of direction or purpose in life.

Although things may be difficult right now and it might be hard to see a way through what's happening for you, with help and support it really can get better. I won't be able to give you specific advice or tell you what to do as I believe in your ability to find your own path and your own answers and will instead work with you and help you find them, one session at a time

Practice description

I offer a caring, supportive and confidential space where we can work through the things that matter to you and explore different perspectives and new strategies to help you heal, move forward and feel well again. I can work in a number of different ways so that our sessions are always tailored to suit your needs and individual preferences

From my own experience, I know how daunting it can sometimes be to reach out for help from a stranger, particularly if you’ve never had counselling before, so we will only ever work in a way that feels right for you and at a speed that feels safe and comfortable.

My first session

Finding a counsellor who you feel is the right “fit” for you is one of the most important things in counselling so I offer an initial 30-minute telephone session which is completely free so you can see how you feel about us working together.

On receipt of your enquiry, I will telephone or email you so we can arrange a date and time for the call where we will talk about what you’d like help with and the different ways I can support you. If you’d like us to work together, we will then arrange our first session which can be in person, telephone or online. I also offer walk and talk appointments subject to availability.
