About Me

Lucie has been working clinically in both the NHS and private mental health services since 2012 and has previously worked as a Senior Clinical Psychologist in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). These roles have involved psychological assessments and therapeutic work with children and families with a full range of complex behavioural and emotional difficulties. These include anxiety related conditions such as generalised anxiety, OCD, health anxiety, separation anxiety, social anxiety, PTSD, social phobia and other specific phobias.

Lucie has supported young people with low mood, depression and school refusal and has experience managing risk such as self-harm and suicidal ideation. Lucie has experience working with young people who have low self-esteem, eating disorders, sleep problems and other emotional difficulties. Lucie has also been involved in the assessment towards diagnosis for Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Lucie uses evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Video Interaction Guidance (VIG), Third Wave Therapies such as Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). Lucie has experience of family therapy and is accredited at delivering the Webster Stratton Incredible Years Parenting programme.

Lucie obtained a BSc in Psychology at the University of Manchester and a MSc in Forensic Psychology from Manchester Metropolitan University.
