Understand - Overcome - Grow

A qualified and experienced, award-winning counsellor, based in Stroud.

Hi, I’m Lucy.

I’m a professionally registered (MBACP) and experienced counsellor, based in Stroud, Gloucestershire. 

In my role, I have the privilege of helping people gain understanding about themselves, overcoming something and growing as an individual through the counselling process.

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and fundamentally believe that everyone is unique. I offer a confidential, non-judgemental safe space from which we can explore your uniqueness, your relationships, experiences and situation together.

Interested in learning more about how we might work together?

Understand - Overcome - Grow


Our work together will support you in gaining understanding and insight about yourself.

I believe that there is nobody else quite like you.

Only you were born into your body, at that time, to those people, in that place. Only you have had your complex web of relationships and experiences. You are a one-off prism that refracts and casts your light on what it means to be human.

So who are you? 

Our work together will support you in gaining understanding and insight about yourself. 

Perhaps you want to understand the way that you are feeling, or thinking, or behaving, further. Maybe you want to better understand your relationships, a problem, or experience that happened to you.

This depth of self-understanding can be achieved through the counselling process, where we will work together to explore your experiences and understand their meaning for you.

Once we have self-understanding and awareness, we can choose to do something different.

Counselling won’t undo your past or erase your experiences; it does however give you the capacity to deal with and process the past so that it doesn’t continue to control you in the present and future. 

I work with people looking to overcome a range of emotional difficulties and common mental health challenges, such as:

• Anxiety

• Depression

• A sense of being stuck

• Stress and overwhelm

• Panic attacks

• Bereavement and loss

• Relationship and family issues

• Low self-esteem and body image

• Life changes / crisis

Looking to overcome something?


Counselling is a process of growth, development and change.

I truly believe that everyone has an amazing curative capacity to change the lens through which they see themselves and the world – and to operate in the world differently. As your counsellor, my role is to nurture your growth toward living a more enriched, fulfilled life.  

Counselling won’t magically change your life, but I do believe that it will change you and that you will change your life.
