Hi, I'm Lucie, a qualified play therapist, and I am currently working therapeutically with children aged 3–12 who are experiencing difficulties in a range of areas. These could including bullying, anxiety, ASD, low self-esteem, trauma, domestic violence and family separation, among others. I work alongside the child, understanding their individual needs and form of expression. I start by building a relationship based on trust and respect, and meet the child where they are. Trust, Respect and Safety allow the child to express their feelings, which further enables them and brings self awareness and confidence.

Most people thinking about counselling have apprehensions and may want to know how comfortable it might feel to work with a particular therapist. I aim to offer the sort of experience I’d want for myself or a loved one – a chance to speak with someone warm, calm and respectful who is also trained, ethical and professional. If you work with me, I hope you will find that I listen carefully to you and do my best to understand what’s troubling you. It is important to me that a space is created where you feel safe expressing yourself, at your pace, without judgement. This then helps us to explore and make sense of things together.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
