Welcome and Introduction

Hi, I’m Lucinda, owner of Nature’s Embrace. Thank you for visiting my website.

I’m a creative arts psychotherapist specialising in anxiety, trauma and loss. I’m passionate about combining connection and creativity in nature as a powerful way for my clients to heal, and to feel better about themselves and the life they lead.

As well as individual therapy, I offer clinical supervision/reflective practice for therapists and professionals and regularly run groups and workshops.

Individual Therapy  

If you are struggling with an ongoing sense of dread and worry, difficulties in relationships, sleep problems (struggling to fall or stay asleep), addictive behaviours, irritability, feeling on edge and/or withdrawing from social contact, I may be able to help you. These symptoms may have come on recently or you may feel like you’ve had them forever. Click here to find out more.

Clinical Supervision/Reflective Practice

I work with trainee and qualified therapists and counsellors who are looking for clinical supervision that is supportive, relational and at the same time challenging. I welcome supervisees who work outdoors and/or creatively and are looking for a supervisor with expertise in one or both areas. My clinical experience covers developmental trauma, attachment issues, loss, grief, anxiety and depression, and working with adopted and looked after young people and their families.

I also work with professionals (e.g. school staff member, healthcare worker, social worker) who are seeking a regular space to reflect on their role as carer/educator/service provider and wishing to explore relationship dynamics, and how the impacts of past and current life experiences, cultural and organisational issues influence the thoughts, feelings and  behaviours of the children/adults in their care.  Click here to find out more.

Workshops & Groups

I currently run an outdoor supervision group for therapists and counsellors in Selmeston, near Eastbourne, and I regularly run wellbeing workshops and groups with a strong focus on a deep connection with self, others and the natural world we are a part of.

Nature As A Model And A Mirror – The Importance of Nature in My Work

You don’t need research to tell you that being out in nature is intrinsically good for you – a long walk or even a short, brisk walk can blow the cobwebs of everyday life away allowing you to come back feeling refreshed. Interacting more proactively with nature and developing a deeper relationship with it can bring deep relief, release and healing.

I hope you find something here on my website that helps you and I look forward to hearing from you. I can be contacted on mob: 07729 773469 or email: lucinda@lucindaweis.com
