My Journey

Welcome to this space, I am so happy to have you here. I am Lucy, a psychotherapist, yoga, mindfulness & meditation teacher.

 

I created Embody Counselling after my own personal experience of burnout, stress and being diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune disease. During this time, I looked at my life, and I realised I was disconnected, I didn’t know who I was, and I wasn’t happy. I felt dissatisfied with traditional talk therapy, and whilst the medical system has been very important to me, I found it surprising that no-one ever asked me about my happiness, mental wellbeing or how I was feeling. I eventually found several practices and a therapist that changed my life and my health. Embody Counselling was born as a way to help others with similar issues.

 

My journey has led me to an interest in trauma, health, and the psyche. I am extremely passionate about helping individuals heal from trauma and lead fulfilling, whole and embodied lives. As a psychotherapist with a chronic illness, I understand the unique challenges that come with living with a chronic health condition and my personal experience has given me a unique perspective and a deep sense of empathy and understanding.

 

My approach to therapy is based on building a safe, supportive, and compassionate relationship, grounded in respect and trust. I believe that every human being has the innate ability to grow and reach their full potential, my role as a therapist is to guide individuals towards a greater sense of well-being and self-awareness.

 

I use trauma-informed evidence-based, holistic and humanistic techniques and approaches such as compassion-based therapy, somatic (body) therapy and mindfulness practices to help individuals process their experiences and develop new coping strategies. I provide a non-judgemental and safe space for people to explore their emotions, thoughts, and experiences.

 

My own journey has taught me the importance of self-care and compassion and I strive to help my clients cultivate these qualities within themselves, so they can find peace and healing in their lives.

 

I live in Australia, next to the ocean. I practise yoga and meditation regularly and I love to travel, dance, connect with my friends, and be in nature.

 

It is a privilege to walk alongside you on your journey through life.

 

All with compassion, love and care.

I believe in creating a safe and caring space for others where everyone is valued, respected, and supported by living a life aligned to what is meaningful to me by…

  • Compassion and Understanding to be with myself and others exactly as we are. 
  • Practising Gratitude for all that I have.

  • Unconditional Love and Acceptance for myself, the shadow and the light and giving that to others.

  • Awareness and Deep Presence to notice, slow down and be still.

  • Experiencing the Joy in life’s moments when they arise.

  • Making time for Curiosity and Playfulness.

  • Prioritising Connection to myself, to nature and to others.

  • Embodiment of my emotions, and all that I am feeling in each moment.

  • Allowing myself the Freedom to be myself and let others be themselves.

  • A lifetime commitment to Growth and an Openness to exploring new things.
