Sometimes things can feel overwhelming. Maybe you are feeling unsure of the way forward? You might have regrets about your past or worries about your future? I can help you develop trust in yourself, recognise your needs, and move onwards with self compassion.
Why come to me?
Welcome, I’m Lucie, thank you for visiting my page.
You may be seeking counselling for lots of different reasons, feeling anxious, have low mood, be struggling with loss and grief, suffering from stress, have lost touch with your sense of self, or you might just feel that something is off balance and want to explore those feelings. Maybe life hasn’t turned out how you imagined, and you want support to reflect on your past and look forward to your future with new hope. You don’t need to be at breaking point before reaching out for help. Making that first step to ask for support can feel overwhelming, you are not alone.
I am here to help you, give you the space to be heard and the chance to flourish. Working together at a pace you feel comfortable with, we can establish a relationship that helps you feel safe, share what is troubling you and increase your trust in yourself and your inner strength. I will walk alongside you during this exploration and unfolding. I am here to help you find your way home to yourself.
"If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive." Brené Brown
As a therapist I support clients through depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, relationship breakdown, affairs and betrayals, bereavement, anger, loneliness, stress, childhood trauma and abuse as well as questions around spirituality and finding purpose and passion in life.
I have an Advanced Diploma in Counselling (NCS Accredited). I am an accredited member of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS), as such I abide by their code of ethics.
My practice is regularly monitored each month with clinical supervision and I work hard to expand my understanding of new theories and practices through continuing professional development. I also have counselling myself as part of my ongoing personal development and self-awareness. I am insured with Howden Insurance and have a valid DBS certificate.
My training is as an Integrated Counsellor and Therapist which means I adapt the way I work to meet the specific needs of each individual and put the client at the heart of my work.
I am also an Association for Counselling & Therapy Online (ACTO) Certified Online and Telephone Counsellor. This enables me to work safely as an online therapist.
I am also a qualified clinical supervisor (Dip Supervision - NCPS) - offering supervision to other counsellors.
