ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Lulu. I have tremendous respect for you in taking this initial step towards change, personal growth and a more optimised life.  Therapy is not a casual undertaking. It requires a sincere commitment on your part to prioritise yourself and your personal growth. I commend you for not settling and for wanting to seek out an alternative way. My aim is to support you on every step of your journey. 

EXPERIENCE

After graduating in Psychology, I spent twenty years working as a Chief of Staff for ultra-high-net-worth individuals and coaching large international teams around the world. I then qualified as a Psychotherapist in order to become an empowering advocate for a much more diverse and inclusive Client base. Prior to establishing a private practice, my clinical experience began as a trauma-informed Psychotherapist at a women's charity, working with survivors of rape, sexual violence and domestic violence. I am a Clinical Sexologist and Couples Therapist in-training.

HOW I WORK

Combining Psychotherapy, Psychology and Coaching, I practice from an integrated approach, which involves selecting techniques from different therapeutic orientations best suited to a Client's particular problem. Therapeutically, I mainly work with Polyvagal Theory, the Person-Centred Approach, Transactional Analysis, CBT, Jungian & Psychodynamic Theory. Psychologically, I bring a behavioural and evolutionary perspective. My aim is to work with, and help Clients, develop a deeper understanding and acceptance of themselves.  Together, we identify any blind spots you may have and we take action by resetting those frames of reference and patterns of behaviour that are holding you back.  I also work with Clients who are already living how they want to live, in a way that feels true to them, and who are committed to keeping it that way through regular and honest reflection.
