I specialise in assisting children, adolescents and adults to heal and transform from trauma, early attachment disruptions, overwhelm/burnout, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression , relational challenges, disordered eating, self-esteem/identity issues and life transitions. I support people to not only gain insight about their struggles, but to transform at an embodied level through processing negative self-beliefs, stuck emotions and/or unhelpful behaviours. These may be experienced as distressing symptoms or experiences that sometimes do not make sense.

Hi – I’m Lucy, a neurodivergent Provisional Psychologist who works with other Autistic, ADHD and neurodivergent people (adults and teenagers). My calling in life is to support you in understanding and embracing your neurodivergent identity - and help you work out what support you need to better cope in the neurotypical world. As a late-identified neurodivergent person, I understand how neurotypical systems and organisations misunderstand our communication style, sensory needs, and executive functioning. And as a Provisional Psychologist, I understand the skills, strategies and fierce boundaries you will need to get by in this world.

I work to uncover and transform the issues which underlie the anxiety or depression rather than just treat the symptoms. These are usually wounds from childhood which we were unable to deal with as they occurred. I also work with trauma, initially to stabilise and build trust, moving onto trauma processing. I am inspired and intrigued by my clients creativity and spontaneity and always try to connect with where they're at, seeing the person as part of a whole system. I believe that healing comes from the client, I am just a facilitator.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
