About Jo Lucas

Jo Lucas integrative psychotherapist Cambridge

For me, therapy and counselling are an opportunity to move on from feeling stuck with old and uncomfortable habits, and to find a way to grow into yourself. 


My own experience of psychotherapy gave me a real sense of shifting blocks in my life and becoming more at ease with myself.


I  completed an  MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy at Metanoia in 2014. My first degree is in Psychology and I have an MSc in Social Work and Social Policy from LSE.  I recently completed certifcate course in relational coaching, and one in supervision. I have also studied assertiveness, stress management, relaxation, team building, management, and training.


I have many years’ experience of working with people in a range of different contexts. I ran a counselling service in the early 80’s, have been a social worker and I have supervised social workers and staff in different mental health organisations. I have worked directly with people with a wide range of mental health problems in the community and in residential settings.


In my previous role as Chief Executive of a small organisation working in the UK and internationally I managed a team, the budget, externally funded projects and made sure the work plan was implemented effectively. I also worked with people setting up and running their own social enterprises, ran a networking organisation and facilitated action learning sets. I have worked in large and small organisations and now run my own business.


I am accredited as a  therapist with the UKCP and abide by it's code of ethics and complaints procedures.
