About Me

Sand and sea and the sun reflecting in the sea. Claming

I strive to provide the best in-person and online counselling services to my clients. Since I finished my degree in Psychology in 1995, I have worked with adults from different backgrounds, cultures  and nationalities to help them develop both personally and socially. 

I have worked over 20 years in different sectors; 12 years as a career officer  coaching and training personal & professional skills, in Education as a Personal & Developmental Tutor in the Justice System, as a Learning Support Assistant in a college working with individuals with learning difficulties.

Training to become a Psychotherapist and Counsellor has being the most exciting and daunting journey. I have and continue to explore my past, my trauma wounds, my conditions of worth, my shadows so I can help you to explore yours. I must admit that it is a daunting journey but the reward is great and allows you feel better in your skin. 

I enjoy working with people as it fulfills my sense of belonging and my purpose in life. Foremost I love working with YOU because I learn so much from you, myself, others, life and the world. 

My approach is a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural and humanistic approaches with a focus on your individual strengths and abilities. I believe that by understanding your needs and values, I can help you lead a more fulfilling life.

Road Trip

Better Help client

Lucia has been very supportive and open. She fully listens to my concerns and adapts her approach accordingly. She speaks in a reassuring and encouraging manner that makes me feel relaxed, calm and respected. I'm happy with the pace of my sessions. She has helped me recognise the resources I have to cope with stress, anxiety and depression. She is resourceful and knowledgeable in how the brain-body functions and how it affects people. I've come a long way in my therapy journey and I'm glad to have Lucia together with me on this.
