About  Me

My name is Lucy Nesbitt (she/they), I'm a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, licensed Counselling Therapist, and Certified Grief Informed Professional. I predominantly offer holistic, somatic, creative counselling sessions that are person-centered and follow a humanistic approach, though I also offer healing oriented music lessons, integrative creative arts and somatic sessions, trauma release sessions, and consulting services. My clients are held with warm, unconditional empathy and full transparency every step of the way. Wherever you're at in your journey, I'll be in your corner. I can't wait to meet you!

I most often provide support for life transitions, change, grief, anxiety, depression, trauma, emotional regulation and mindfulness, though definitely not limited to! Let's get in touch to see how I could support you with whatever it is you're experiencing.

My Story

Before embarking on my journey as a coach and counsellor, I trained as a professional orchestral musician. Through my time in school and auditioning, it became apparent to me that there was not adequate access to mental health professionals with specific experience in the performing arts who could help young musicians and artists such as myself. I wanted to change that.


As I have journeyed through my own life, I gained first hand experience with chronic fatigue, infections, and recurring pain, as well as also anxiety, depression, phobia, panic attacks, suicide ideation and symptoms of PMDD. I also have an intimate relationship with grief, whether that be the loss of loved ones or non-death loss.

After dealing with my own mental health crises, physical health complaints and burnout, I decided that it was time to not only tend to my own struggling, but also to reconnect with the world and help others around me who might also be struggling. ​

This led me to Rhodes Wellness College where I completed my education as Professional Counsellor, Wellness Counsellor, Holistic Life Coach and Experiential Life Skills Workshop Facilitator, and eventually to my licensing as a Counselling Therapist and Registered Therapeutic Counsellor - Candidate. I have since delved deeper into grief and bereavement counselling, as well as integrating neuroscience into my clinical practice to expand my breadth of offerings. My experiences with my own mental health also led me to becoming a volunteer crisis responder in hopes that I may be there for others the way so many were there for me in my own journey. 

Now, I am thrilled to share my learnings and space with you.
