She is enthusiastic about working with children and youth who are experiencing challenges such as anxiety, grief and loss, stress, life transitions, relationship difficulties, depression, anger, parental separation or those with highly sensitive personality.

As a child-friendly, sensitive and dedicated professional Lucia emphasizes the uniqueness and strengths of each child. Her passionate belief in children’s and youth’s resiliency, potential and their ability to heal, is the inspiration that guides her work.

Lucia helps children express their needs through stories, creative media and play-based therapeutic interventions, which are also effective tools of connection and communication. Use of creative media in the sessions stimulates brain development and also positively affects emotional and sensory development in the child.  In the sessions, focus is on strengthening self-confidence, helping children to understand and process difficult emotions and traumatic experiences. She provides children with unique strategies for managing anxiety, fears, anger and for achieving self-control in their behaviour and emotions and for challenging negative beliefs about self and others.

Collaborative work is an important part of the counselling and it takes place through regular consultations and progress review meetings with parents and other professionals involved.
