Lucy Godfrey believes that therapy, although often a painful process, can help people to lead a fuller and freer life without the pain of past experiences constraining the way they live their lives. She believes that being empathic, non-judgmental and genuine with clients will support them in exploring why they are the way they are and work towards a place where they can be more content and accepting of themselves and those around them. Lucy is dedicated to her clients’ wellbeing and believes that it is by working together that a successful therapeutic outcome can be achieved.
With a background as a communications executive for major media organisations, Lucy is interested in, and has experience with, working with people struggling with workplace issues. Lucy is very aware that work can bring high pressure and expectations, and knows it can impact not only on the individual but those around them too. Lucy is interested in the impact of social media on individuals and society, and the anxiety that can arise from people trying to adapt to fit in with the expectations of the world they live in.
Lucy is studying for a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling and currently specialises in a humanistic approach. She is also a member of the BACP. Lucy works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service at a GP surgery in Lambeth.
