Lucy Kralj is an experienced integrative psychotherapist, fully registered with the UKCP. She has particular experience working with complex forms of trauma, including abuse, health-trauma, bereavement and loss. Lucy is a registered nurse and has a background in palliative care. She has worked in three London Hospices as well as leading NGOs working with victims of numerous forms of abuse and human right’s violations. She is currently an associate clinician at Domestic Violence Training Ltd. Lucy is also a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and has a particular interest in the mind-body relationship.
Lucy believes that each of us holds the key to our own healing but that life and situations can make us feel blocked or stuck. She firmly believes that the therapeutic relationship has the potential to become part of a healing process. The relationship itself can help shed light on dark areas and can lead to new ways of relating and can help to facilitate new forms of freedom.
Lucy strives to create a safe, warm and nurturing environment in which people may feel able to explore any aspect of themselves or their lives and understand the myriad of ways in which the past and present can converge and affect our lives, often without us knowing. Similarly she looks at links between what the mind and the body are communicating and how these messages can be understood to bring about insights, awareness and ultimately healing. Lucy is currently training in Compassionate Inquiry with international trauma-expert, Gabor Mate and she holds an MA in integrative psychotherapy. She practices with humility and is committed to continuing personal and professional development and to a deepening understanding of the human condition.
