Lucy has 23 years’ experience as an Educational Psychologist, working for Local Authorities and as an independent practitioner. She is passionate about using psychology to make a positive difference to children, young people, families and schools through flexibly using a range of techniques/approaches in the context of a values-driven approach. Lucy has previously served as Principal Educational Psychologist of a Local Authority Educational Psychology Service, and in that time made a significant contribution to developing the ethos and practices of the team while introducing, implementing and developing strategic- or service-level initiatives. Lucy has a commitment to developing effective collaborations with others, and always considers the whole person whilst keeping in mind the goals that are being worked towards. Those who have worked with Lucy have commented on her ability to understand and relate to others, while observing that her outcome-driven focus is balanced with kindness, calm and consideration. We are excited about welcoming Lucy to the team.
