Lucy is a clinical psychologist who has a special interest in working with parents during the perinatal period. Lucy practices at her private clinic in Ballina. Lucy is also part of the consulting team with Sustaining NSW Families.

Lucy has a warm, supportive and compassionate approach. She enjoys supporting parents to explore ways of achieving a satisfying parenting experience consistent with your family values. Her aim is to work collaboratively with you to promote a secure, loving bond between yourself and your baby. Parents are welcome to bring their baby to sessions.  With four children of her own, Lucy understands firsthand many of the challenges that come with parenthood.

We are all unique, so treatment is tailored to fit the needs of each individual and family. Lucy uses various therapeutic approaches, dependent on the presenting issue and what works for you. Treatment is informed by attachment theory, interpersonal neuroscience and compassion focussed therapy. Lucy has completed additional training in the area of trauma including eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) and has a special interest in birth related trauma.  Lucy is also a Registered Circle of Security Parent Educator.

Some common issues Lucy works with include, attachment/bonding concerns, birth trauma/PTSD, coping with feeding/sleeping/settling concerns, relationship and adjustment difficulties, work/family balance, poor support, coping with infant medical issues, anxiety about health or safety of your baby/postnatal OCD, depressed mood, and postnatal rage.
