Mr Steven Lucas

Job Title:

I offer confidential and professional counselling for individual adults and couples. My approach is called Integrative, which means that I may use counselling techniques from different theorists during your treatment. Examples include Psychodynamic and CBT.

I am a warm, caring and empathic person who is passionate about the therapeutic relationship, a cornerstone of the counselling process. I developed a passion for listening early on in life, often being referred to by friends as a good sounding board. I studied Psychology at college and then went on to complete a BSc in Psychology, and Diplomas in Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

As well as running clinics at three private practices in Wellingborough, Northampton and Bedford, I work as a senior lecturer in counselling psychotherapy at the University of Northampton Park Campus site. My role is to prepare other counsellors for private practice. I also spent six years volunteering with Samaritans as Deputy for Volunteer Care.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and a member of the NHS Complementary and Alternative Practitioners. I also work for the NHS as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner.
