Dr. Lucy Murray
Lucy is passionate about supporting parental mental health. Her approach is child-focused but she believe that supporting emotional and psychological health of mums, dads and carers is an effective way of supporting the whole family. Lucy has a special interest in the path to parenthood, the early years of a child’s life and maternal mental health in particular. She currently works within the NHS with parents of babies born prematurely. Many parents she work with have experienced complex fertility journeys, have experienced birth trauma, loss or bereavement or may be adjusting to their child having longer-term health needs. She is experienced in supporting parents with anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions, including Autism and ADHD. She aims to bring a compassionate, non-judgemental approach to her work.
As a Clinical Psychologist, Lucy is trained to Doctoral level in assessment, formulation and intervention. She draws on different psychological models to meet individual client needs, including Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Brief and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Her approach is informed by Attachment Theory.
Lucy hopes that she can help to understand your difficulties together and she can offer you a non-judgmental space to reflect and learn more about your own mental health and wellbeing. She brings expertise to share with you but she strongly believes that you have wisdom, skills and support systems already in place that can help you move forward.
