I have been in the caring profession for many years working with adults presenting with depression, anxiety, domestic abuse issues, addiction , relationship issues, bereavement and trauma.
Hello, my name is Lucy and I am a fully qualified and insured counsellor. I work as an integrative therapist taking a person-centred and relational approach to counselling. I use a range of techniques and approaches - depending on a client's individual needs. Put simply, I'm passionate about promoting good mental health. We all need to express ourselves in a way that we want to, and at a pace that is comfortable for us. I will support you to explore and reflect upon your feelings, issues and challenges - past and present, build on your self-acceptance and gain a greater understanding of your emotional and physical wellbeing.

For the past 18 years I have specialised in trauma and addiction , working with people within community-based organisations, schools, criminal justice systems, the NHS and Private Practice. I have a particular interest in how people make sense of their experiences. A particular lens through which this is viewed is narrative. This aims to be a respectful and non-blaming practice in which there is a collaboration to find the most satisfying story to live a preferred life. A pace for this work will be negotiated and agreed at the start and reviewed in each session or, when required.

I work with a wide range of issues and specialise in addiction , chronic shame and depression.
Counselling is a safe space where you can talk about problems and process difficult emotions without shame or judgement. We often feel that we should be able to deal with our problems without others help. But it is often through sharing and opening up to others, that we can find the way to heal ourselves. Trauma, mental or emotional problems, disconnect us from ourselves and others. Sharing our pain and our story (in a relationship where it is held safely) can allow us to value, respect and have compassion for all parts of ourselves. This re-integration unblocks our creative/healing potential and our sense of purpose and meaning.

I have experience in helping with addiction , MH, sexual abuse issues and related trauma and inner child work.
You maybe seeking support/help when things have become tough, difficult, or overwhelming that could be having an impact on health, mental health, on work, family, partner or affecting other relationships. Maybe past events are having an impact on you today in your life that you feel you need to talk about with a trusted professional, in a confidential way, where you will not be judge or criticised. This could be because you want to address issues around self esteem, sexual abuse, stress related work, health problems, trauma or bereavement. It could be that you need the space to off load, be listened to to find a new perspective

Some of the painful, seemingly involuntary behaviours that may be governed by the neurological process of addiction need help to be understood.
As a lead therapist in a prestigious rehab, as well as private practice, I manage other counsellors and work with clients bringing a specialism of trauma into the treatment of addiction . My training, studies and experience, both professionally and personally has taken me toward looking at addiction as a symptom of psychological trauma. Trauma is often rooted in relationship difficulties, which may mean we need to experience trusting interactions and connections in order to repair the original wound or to understand the carnage addiction may cause.

I have a wide range of experience of working with various client groups from low self-esteem, addiction , sexual orientation, offending behaviour, women's issues, autism, depression/anxiety and bereavement etc.
I have worked as a counsellor for many years and am both passionate and motivated as I was in the beginning. I am particularly passionate about working people who have low self-esteem as I believe this covers so many areas/issues in life. As a woman in my 50’s with various life experience this allows me to empathise and have compasion for others. Having come from a multi-cultural family with Irish roots this gives me a greater understanding of cultural diversity and a sense of belonging. I am a spiritual person who has an interest in mindfulness and Yoga.

Life's too short to be about rocky relationships, substance over sue, being controlled by trauma and feeling angry all the time.
Counselling for men who don't want counselling ... Many men see therapy as a waste of time and money, a one-sided converastion, solely focused on feelings, with little opportunity for you to fix things yourself. You want to go it alone.The very notion of discussing your private life with a stranger makes you recoil. You really want to be okay. You really want to just have your life together. But you cant' seem to stop being moody, angry, agressive, jealous and, sometimes even, suicidal. You may be drinking too much, using drugs or gambling too much. Deep down, you're suffering and so are the people around you.

I have 16 years experience working with a broad range of Compulsivity/ Addiction issues, working for two agencies in Bristol.
Good therapy is about change: changing reactions, behaviours, a difficult aspect of self, challenging attitudes/beliefs about yourself or your story. I love working with clients who are prepared to jump in, take risks and seek solutions - this is the way to ensure real change. I will jump in and risk too. I value being human and involved in the therapy and am also practically minded and view the best wisdom as something that can directly be applied to life. A supervisee recently described me as "real, relational, ordinary, practical and not floaty/wispy". I like to incorporate psychoeducation and relevant theoretical information.

I am a qualified counsellor and complementary health practitioner and tutor. I studied counselling and addiction at the University of Bath and I also have wide ranging life and work experience. Most of us can have times in life when it seems as though we can't cope and we may feel worried, fearful or confused. At these times it can be helpful to give ourselves the gift of speaking to someone who is not a family member or friend, someone we can be honest with, without fear of judgement or opinion.
