Lucy Romano

My name is Lucy Romano and I started working at the Mullum Road Psychology Clinic in Eltham recently.

I was a late bloomer and studied psychology when I was 40 years old. I was keen to learn and enjoyed the stimulation of learning. Prior to this, I had worked in traditional social work roles for Child Protection, family and support services, and community health. Psychology has provided me with the opportunity to work with a range of people who need support. I have always been passionate about empowering individuals, building resilience, and promoting self-worth and feel that my work as a psychologist reflects a commitment to these values. I provide counselling for people with various mental health issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, relational and adjustment issues and low self-esteem. I have a holistic approach to therapy but have specific training in cognitive behaviour therapy and psychodynamic therapy. I also use a strength-based approach and mindfulness.

I feel privileged to work at Mullum, because of their commitment to women and children and their Animal Assisted Therapy program. I have always been an animal lover and appreciate the companionship that animals can bring to our lives.

I myself have two 12 year old cats, Remmie and Dexter. They are of course independent and highly intelligent but also very loving and affectionate. They are a great source of amusement and seem to find pleasure in the simplest of things. A piece of string, some crumpled paper, or a single leaf blown across the pavement. I am also fascinated by their capacity to simply relax and snooze when the mood takes them. I feel that they are good role models when it comes to living in the moment and have taught me much about the value of simply chilling out.
