About Lucy

Hi there! I'm Lucy, a counsellor and certified hypnotherapist based in Sydney. I place empathy at the heart of my practice to ensure that each client feels heard, understood and empowered to overcome their challenges. I tailor each session to the individual weaving a range of modalities such as CBT, Narrative Therapy, SFBT and Gestalt to get to the root cause and to foster long-lasting change and resilience.

I believe that all limiting beliefs and behaviours have served a purpose for us and together, we will identify these, work through them and replace them with functional solutions.

I have been in your shoes before and understand how daunting seeking help can be, so I am committed to facilitating a safe and calming space. It is my mission to empower you with a toolkit of strategies so that you can harness your resilience and move through challenges in life.

Hypnosis is a natural, normal state that everyone experiences every day, often more than once. For example, have you ever driven somewhere and it feels as if you blinked and you were there? That's hypnosis.

In hypnotherapy, you are guided into a deep state of relaxation. This state engages with the part of your mind that you cannot typically access yourself (subconscious) to target the root of your concern. Your subconscious will be guided to communicate with your conscious to bring about change. This state enables you to free your mind of the daily chatter, critical thoughts and judgements to welcome suggestions for positive changes that evoke positive action. These positive changes will be discussed in your initial consultation and reviewed throughout so that we effectively target them and reach your goals.

Volunteer Work

I believe that everyone should have access to therapy and I honour this through volunteer work with Griefline Australia, a telephone support service for those navigating grief in all areas of life from the loss of a loved one to the grief of identity. I also volunteer at The Friendship Centre where I predominately work with mandated clients who have been ordered to complete counselling as part of their rehabilitation process. Along with those unable to access therapy.

I find this work extremely rewarding and inspiring.
