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 and I have so much respect and admiration when that contact is made, 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.
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 finding purpose and passion in life.
Covid 19 update: Zoom or telephone sessions available
I am currently working with clients via telephone or Zoom.
In other times I work from my counselling room in a quiet residential area of Teignmouth.
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 this 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.
