Lucy Wise (she/her)

Provisional Psychologist

Hi – I’m Lucy, a neurodivergent Provisional Psychologist who works with Autistic, ADHD and other neurodivergent people (adults and teenagers). My calling in life is to support you in understanding and embracing your neurodivergent identity - and help you work out what support you need to better cope in the neurotypical world.

Some of the things that make me 'me':

Other people may describe me as:

Late identified neurodivergence

Very Helpful Chats - ND - Welcome (2).png

I know first-hand what it’s like to try and live up to neurotypical standards of working, parenting and existing - and that’s not a life I’d ever want to go back to! I’d love to be your guide in helping you create – with intention - the most joyful, rich and rewarding neurodivergent life you can dream of.

As a late-identified neurodivergent person, I understand how neurotypical systems and organisations can misunderstand our communication style, sensory needs, and executive functioning. And as a Provisional Psychologist, I understand the skills, strategies and fierce boundaries you will need to get by in this world.

My main work SpIns (aka special interests) are supporting late-identified women, AFAB & non-binary people with un-masking, rejection sensitivity dysphoria, perfectionism, imposter syndrome, invalidation, and burnout. We'll work to get you to a place of emotional peace and well-being – a place of self-acceptance where you’re not just surviving - you're thriving!

As a proud member of the LGBTIQA+ community, I’m also drawn to supporting people who are curious about or questioning their gender identity and sexuality – and can help you build skills in navigating relationship or family difficulties, conflict, or trauma that can, unfortunately, happen when you start living authentically as yourself. All of our work together will be within a safe trauma-informed space where I will prioritise your needs for safety, choice and control.

By the time we finish working together

I want you to have:

  • A greater awareness of yourself and confidence to unmask and express your authentic self.

  • Increased ability to tune into your interoceptive, sensory, emotional & energetic needs.

  • Increased confidence to advocate for yourself to get the right tools and support from friends, family members, partners, employers etc.

  • A toolkit of strategies to support your well being and mental health.

  • Greater connection to neurodivergent resources and community and pride in your neurodivergent identity!

Fees

  • The standard consultation fee for a 50-minute appointment with Lucy is $170. This applies to all clients, including privately paying clients and NDIS clients who are self-managed.

  • Fees for NDIS plan-managed clients are as per the NDIS price guide for counsellors.

  • No Medicare or health fund rebates are available for appointments with provisional psychologists.

  • You can read our Fees and Rebates page for more information.

Appointments

  • Lucy works with us on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

  • Lucy's therapy wait list is estimated to be around 3 to 6 months. This is only a rough estimate, as our waitlists can be quite fluid, and sometimes there is movement, which means we might have unexpected appointments that pop up earlier than this.

What happens now?

 

  • After you get in touch, our dedicated admin team will send you our brief 'waitlist and matching intake form'. This form is designed to gather basic information about your needs to make sure we can offer you the service you need. This form also helps us match you with a clinician who has the skills and experience to meet your needs.

  • Once we are able to offer you an appointment, we will send you a second intake form. This form goes into greater detail and aims to gather more specific information about your history and current situation to enable your allocated clinician to better prepare for your appointment.

  • As part of the second intake form, we also request your credit card, debit card, or Paypal details. Rest assured that we take card security seriously, and your details are stored securely on our client management system, Halaxy. This security measure helps us prevent theft and fraud. No one at Very Helpful Chats will have access to your card details. If you have any concerns or questions regarding the security of your card details, we encourage you to read more about Halaxy's card security here: Halaxy Card Security FAQs
