I am a counsellor that helps people with anxiety and depression to be able to cope better with life and feel more relaxed.
Hello and welcome. Finding the right therapist can feel a bit challenging and I would encourage always to try a few different ones before you decide. You are welcome to contact me to ask any questions that you may have by email or text is the best way to do this and from there we can arrange to speak on the phone at a time that suits you. I have been coaching clients for the last 16 years. My clients have described me as easy to talk to and relaxed, though I do offer a free assessment which is a two-way meeting to see how we get along, so you can dip your toe in the counselling/therapy water with no obligation.

Person centred approach to recurrent depression and long term conditions such as fibromyalgia.
Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

Both of these are evidence based treatments, proven to be very effective in the treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety.
Life can often present us with some difficult and painful challenges. How we respond to these challenges, will vary according to our life experiences, especially our early childhood experiences. Having the time and space to untangle and make sense of our past and it’s impact on our present, will help us move out of unhelpful thinking styles, help us move from being stuck in negative relationships and also help find ways to make the changes necessary in our lives. However, on occasion when the source of a persons difficulty is linked with traumatic experiences, then a more specialised trauma focused approach is required.

If you are struggling with problems in your relationships, family and couples therapy can be an enormously helpful step to take. Perhaps you've experienced a loss or a change in circumstances that you are struggling to adjust to, or you're getting stuck in the same conflicts again and again. If you'd like a safe space to get some fresh perspectives and start relating to each other in a way that allows the whole family to thrive, Lucy can help. Sometimes it's not possible for all those involved to attend therapy, and Lucy will always hold those important others in mind during your therapy.

Counselling is all about listening, sometimes to what is not even being said. As a counsellor I have no agenda except your welfare, development and insight, to help you find the path which best suits you. Crucial to this is developing a trusting, consistent relationship within which we can explore far and wide, whilst remaining safe and contained. I am a Registered MBACP counsellor with years of experience in clinical work in community services, GP surgeries and private practice. Talking therapy is nothing new, it helps, it can change lives and transform individuals.

With 20 years experience as a Counsellor & 10 years as an Art Psychotherapist within various NHS, Education and Community-based services, I've since specialised in EMDR therapy and am now an Accredited Practitioner with the EMDR Association UK & Ireland. Although EMDR is widely recognised as a trauma-focused therapy, it can effectively treat a broad range of issues, often in a relatively short-term time-frame. EMDR helps process intense emotions, self-limiting beliefs & behavioural patterns in the present which seem stuck on repeat, as they often track back to distressing or overwhelming relational-issues or life events in the past.

As an experienced Art Therapist I believe art making can be a useful way for self expression, reflection and healing when faced with difficult life stresses and experiences. Starting therapy can be a daunting experience but the use of art making in my practice as well as my comfortable, safe, empathic approach provides a reassuring and nurturing environment. Art Therapy provides verbal and non-verbal insight and can provide the sub-conscious a chance to allow thoughts, feeling and emotions be expressed in a safe way. It is for suitable for everyone, regardless of artistic ability and is an opportunity to communicate creatively.

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.
