Counselling service in Leyland
My name is Lucy Sumner and as a fully qualified MBACP integrative counsellor working with adults, I can help you to explore issues that cause you distress and help you cope with life’s challenges. I will provide a safe space and support you without judgement or criticism in which you can express your difficult feelings. Together we can look at things from a fresh perspective and unpick the things that you are struggling with which will help you become more self-aware to enable you to make informed choices and feel more in control.
I have helped people explore and understand troubling thoughts and feelings such as depression, anxiety, OCD and self harm. My specialist areas are infertility, miscarriage, grief, loss and health anxiety. I am passionate about what I do and feel privileged that people trust me with feelings and emotions they may never have spoken to someone else about.
My training as an Integrative Counsellor began 5 years ago. For me this included CBT, psychodynamic and person centred therapies. The advantage of this training is that I can tailor our sessions by using the therapy/therapies that suits you best. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) who are the principal professional body for counselling. I have public and professional liability insurance, and an enhanced disclosure and barring service clearance (DBS). I volunteer at a counselling charity and regularly attend training courses on a wide range of subjects which are relevant to the field. I am constantly seeking to improve my depth of knowledge through further training to be of benefit to my clients.
