Lucy uses evidence based treatments such as EMDR and CBT. EMDR is very effective in treating psychological trauma and is also used for depression, bereavement, phobias and anxiety.
CBT can help stop interconnected thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions which can trap you in a negative spiral. Stopping these negative cycles can help you manage fear, anxiety and negative behaviour.
Lucy of Grow Again is also trained to deliver clinical hypnosis and NLP.

I came into the therapy world through training as both a general & mental health nurse. I have 13 years of senior military experience and have a unique understanding of the problems veterans face; this really helps in my 1:1 and group work with service veterans. I now run weekly clinics in a beautiful setting in Dorset. I specialise in trauma therapies and stress reduction. I use a variety of evidence based treatments to treat PTSD, depression, anxiety, stress and many other problems. Along with 1:1 therapy I enjoy running stress reduction courses and mindfulness retreats, I also teach mental health awareness to a number of large organisations. I really love the variety of my work seeing individuals recover and reach their desired goals.
