Lucie Ramet is an experienced Chartered Psychologist and CBT & ACT Therapist offering short- and long-term individual support to adolescents (16+) and adults. She works in English and French.
I have ten years of experience working in public and private health sectors and have practised in France, Singapore and now the UK. I have had the privilege of working with individuals of all ages and diverse cultural and religious heritages.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in evidence-based methods, including Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and mindfulness interventions.
CBT: focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviours. It is based on the premise that our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are interconnected, and by modifying negative thought patterns, individuals can effectively address and overcome various psychological challenges.
ACT: ACT encourages individuals to be present in the moment, observe thoughts without judgement, and pursue meaningful life goals despite internal challenges. The therapy helps develop acceptance, values-based action, and psychological flexibility, allowing individuals to respond adaptively to life’s difficulties.
DBT: DBT is effective in helping individuals manage intense emotions, enhance interpersonal relationships, and develop coping and distress tolerance skills.
Mindfulness interventions encompass practices such as meditation, breathing exercises, and mindful observation. Through these techniques, individuals cultivate the ability to effectively manage stress, enhance focus, and respond more skilfully to thoughts and emotions. These interventions help in various contexts, ranging from stress reduction and anxiety to depression and chronic pain management.
Above all else, I care about people and my primary commitment is to create a safe, supportive and nurturing environment within the therapeutic space, where healing and growth can take place. We all deserve to live authentic and meaningful lives.
What to expect in therapy
I encourage client’s active collaboration, through skill practice and task assignments between sessions, providing opportunities to apply insights in daily life. Completing assignments fosters a sense of agency and empowerment, ensuring consistency in practising new skills and reinforcing helpful behaviours.
Short-term goal-oriented therapy is particularly useful for individuals seeking assistance with specific issues such as stress management, relationship conflicts, or coping with life transitions. This approach focuses on alleviating symptoms or navigating a crisis and involves the development of specific strategies and skills to help individuals make rapid progress toward their identified goals.
Open-ended therapy provides the opportunity for a more in-depth exploration of the individual’s thoughts, feelings, and experiences, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding, and resolution of underlying issues. The focus may be on exploration, self-discovery, and addressing deeper, more complex issues that may not have a quick resolution.
Working with adolescents and young adults
Adolescence brings forth a myriad of challenges encompassing identity formation, peer pressure, academic stress, and emotional volatility. Recognising the transformative journey from childhood to adulthood, teens often benefit from support in navigating milestones and transitions with confidence. In my work, I guide them through the complexities of self-discovery, autonomy, and social dynamics. The aim is to empower adolescents and young adults to walk their path, find purpose, and lead meaningful lives, fostering resilience and skills necessary for a successful transition into adulthood.
Additionally, I place great importance on creating partnerships and collaborating with the immediate environment of teenagers, including parents and schools, to align interventions and support their overall well-being.
Working with adults
I adopt a dynamic and client-centred approach, integrating several therapeutic techniques to address the unique and complex aspects of each individual’s psychological well-being.
Motivations for seeking therapy are diverse and may encompass a desire to deepen self-understanding, alleviate pain and suffering, navigate challenging life events, address relational difficulties, combat work exhaustion, manage stress and anxiety, cope with depression, navigate grief, overcome emotional challenges, address low self-esteem, explore identity questions, or tackle sleep issues.
I am a French-trained clinical psychologist with a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology and Psychopathology from the University of Paris. I am also certified in Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT), extensively trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and skilled in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).
I am a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS – CPsychol 716681), a Full Member of the Singapore Psychological Society (SPS – FM022016A) and a Registered Psychotherapist Practitioner with the French Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy (AFTCC).
I have been engaged in regular supervision continuously since graduation, with senior clinical psychologists trained in CBT and/or ACT.
Additionally, I am inspired by research in psychology, sociology and neuroscience that explores the keys to well-being and the science behind happiness, compassion, resiliency, and purpose. I find it essential to apply these findings in therapeutic work to promote a thriving and resilient society.
