About LCC

LCC was established in 2011 with the aim of bringing a high quality, accessible counselling service to local communities in Herts, Beds and North London. We provide therapy for all psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety and bereavement for adultschildren and teenagers. We also have a specialised sex and relationship therapy team who work with concerns with sexual function and behaviour and with the challenges of relationships.

Having started with our Letchworth based service, LCC now also has Psychosexual and Relationship Therapists working in St. Albans, with lower cost therapy options available in both locations.

LCC is founded on strong ethical principles and professional standards. We have brought together a team of highly qualified therapists who all work to LCC’s exacting standards, ensuring that everyone who uses our service is safely and appropriately supported. Every LCC therapist is fully insured, DBS checked, holds professional body membership and undertakes regular supervision and continuous professional development.

LCC’s specialist sex and relationship therapy team have all completed a two year post graduate course in sex and relationship therapy, in addition to their core counselling or nursing training, and have met the stringent criteria set by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists, (COSRT). If you have a sex or relationship concern and private therapy is beyond your budget, LCC’s sister company, CPS, can offer you 6 free sessions via our NHS psychosexual psychotherapy contract. Contact your GP for a referral. CPS can also offer open-ended, low cost psychosexual therapy to clients who self-refer.

LCC’s Director Krystal Woodbridge holds a national position with COSRT, which places her at the cutting edge of decision making in this speciality.

LCC also offers an excellent placement opportunity for clinical trainees in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Psychology.

So, whether you require general counselling, sex and relationship therapy, family, child or teenager therapy, you can be confident that you are putting yourself in the best possible hands, knowing that you will be treated with respect, warmth, compassion and empathy by therapists who are appropriately qualified to help you.

Our Practice Manager, Kathy Freeman, personally and confidentially handles all enquiries to LCC.
