Lucy Rotherham

My name is Lucy Rotherham. I am a professionally qualified Counsellor working as an Associate within Rotherham Counselling Services. I hold a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling, building upon previously gained certificates of Counselling Skills and Counselling Theory. Prior to working as a counsellor I worked as a Manager within the National Health Service both in Planning Health Services and within the Human Resources and Training and Development areas. During this time I worked with, and helped to manage people. I have acquired a range of skills and many life experiences. I am a self employed Complementary Therapist and am contracted for services by the Maples Cancer Care Centre (formerly Rotherham Cancer Care Centre) since 2004, using massage, aromatherapy and reflexology. I have also worked with clients as a Counsellor at the Maples Cancer Care Centre, for over 12 years, to support both people trying to live with cancer and their main carer. During my career as a counsellor I have attained further knowledge of the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and continue to attend specialist workshops, seminars and courses in order to enhance my personal and professional development. I am able to support the principles of both CBT and Psychodynamic methods. Within my counselling career I have covered a range of issues, including low self-esteem, depression, illness, relationships, work-related problems, low confidence, anxiety and bereavement. Client autonomy is an important aspect, and my approach is primarily Person-Centred. The client is considered to be the expert on themselves, thus facilitating them to finding their own solutions. I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), and am bound by its Ethical Framework for good practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure. My counselling work is regularly supervised independently and externally to my private practice, along BACP guidelines. BACP Registration Number 124534
