About Lucy

I am an English-speaking counsellor and therapist with a particular interest in working with change, which includes:

 

· relationship issues  · bereavement, grief and loss · careers · expat life · retirement · living with illness

 

In addition, stress, anxiety, depression or loneliness that may already be present or have become more pronounced as a result of any of the above

 

·      When life presents us with challenges and difficulties, we can sometimes navigate these issues with the help of friends and family. However, there are moments when we may feel stuck or overwhelmed. In such times, I can provide a fresh perspective, enhancing self-awareness, acceptance and decision making.​

 

·      Equally, you don’t need to be at crisis point to see a therapist. Talking to a therapist can help give shape and voice to any general feelings of discontent or unease and hopefully give you the comfort that you are not alone.  ​

 

·      I offer a confidential space to explore your current challenges as well as look into your experiences and emotions. Together we will develop practical skills to help reduce your anxiety and build the resilience that you need for improved self-confidence and overall well-being.

 

·      I have worked privately with a wide range of clients as well as volunteering with Young Minds, Princes Trust and most recently The Mulberry Centre as a volunteer counsellor supporting cancer patients, their carers and family, and the bereaved.

1.

Stress, Anxiety & Depression

Are you affected by stress, anxiety or depression?

 

In today’s fast-paced and demanding world, often fuelled by social media, stress, anxiety and depression have become commonplace challenges that many face.

 

Together we can explore your feelings, past experiences and patterns of behaviour that might be preventing you from addressing these issues, helping you to move forward and restore some balance to your life.

 

 

2.

Bereavement, Grief & Loss

If you are struggling with the loss of a loved one, or somebody with whom you had a difficult relationship, this can be an unbearably lonely time.

 

I offer a compassionate space for you in which to grieve and find meaning as you process your pain. Through therapy, we will navigate the various stages of grief, process your emotions and work towards developing healthy coping strategies.

 

This will help you to move forward while acknowledging and learning to value your memories.

3.

Friends & Family Relationships

Friends are our chosen family and navigating these relationships as well as family, romantic and professional relationships can be both challenging and emotional.

 

Together we will work towards establishing healthy boundaries, improving communication and fostering more fulfilling and meaningful connections.

4.

Retirement

As retirement looms closer, it also marks a significant milestone in life, signalling the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.  

 

While on the one hand it brings the promise of leisure, freedom and relaxation, the emotional effects of retirement can be complex and varied including grief, loss of identity and financial concerns to name a few.  

 

We can explore what is going on for you, enable you to process how to address these issues and examine any self-limiting beliefs that may be holding you back.  This will move you forward into a new era of self-discovery and reflection. 

5.

Expat Life

One of my specialisms is English-speaking therapy for expats.

 

While born and bred in London, I have lived abroad for many years. As a result, I understand the unique challenges faced when adapting to new cultures, lifestyles and environments.

 

I offer a safe space where expats can explore their emotions, navigate cultural differences and develop strategies in order to thrive in their new surroundings.

 

Together, we will work on building a strong foundation for personal growth and creating a sense of belonging in your new environment.

Therapy Sessions

My Approach

In our counselling sessions, I utilise an integrative and client-centred approach, tailoring the work to your unique needs and goals and at a pace that is comfortable for you.

Together we will embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, enabling you to create positive and meaningful change in your life.

 

I draw upon various therapeutic modalities including Psychodynamic, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based techniques and solution focused therapy to create a holistic and empowering experience.

 

Subject to your reasons for coming to counselling we may explore around the following topics:

inner critic and self-esteem

attachment theory and emotional connections 

drama triangle and healthy roles

Benefits of Remote Counselling

  • Accessibility: Remote counselling allows you to access counselling services anywhere with an internet connection.

  • Convenience: You can schedule sessions without the need to travel to a physical location, making it easier if you are busy or have mobility issues to access therapy regularly.

  • Anonymity and Privacy: You may feel more at ease in the comfort of your own home discussing sensitive and private issues. Online counselling does provide a sense of anonymity that allows for open and honest communication.

  • Continuity of Care: If you have an illness that prevents you from attending, or you are a carer, remote sessions ensure that the therapy can continue uninterrupted, allowing for ongoing support and progress.
