About Dr. Lucille
Hello, and welcome.
I’m Dr. Lucille Necas, a Psychiatrist and Life Coach for women who want to live into their potential.
My psychiatric career spans over 30 years. I’ve treated many hundreds of women from all walks of life, with diverse mental health issues. Focusing on psychotherapy and a holistic approach, I’ve helped them heal. And I’ve been privileged to discover the amazing gifts, talents and dreams that lie dormant within them. I decided to become a Life Coach to help women go beyond healing to uncovering these hidden treasures so they can create happier, more meaningful lives.
This went on for many years. It took its toll on me, leaving me chronically anxious, depressed and overwhelmed.
As I grew older, I fit pieces of my mother’s story together like a jigsaw puzzle that was all about trauma and lost dreams.
Then the second world war broke out and the universities closed. People were dying of starvation. Her beloved father died in her arms during a bombing raid. Her brother was inducted into the army and never heard from again. She and her mother were relocated to Germany by the Nazis to work in the factories. Her first marriage there was a bitter disappointment and was annulled. She started having bipolar episodes.
When the Allied forces invaded, she had the chance to leave for Canada and managed to get approval by forging her documents to erase any evidence of mental illness. Her hopes for a happy life were dashed when she met my father. Constant arguments erupted between them over her desire to work, have her own source of income and study. “No wife of mine…” was his angry comeback.
My mother lived a smaller life than she had hoped for. There was some happiness as time went on and her condition stabilized. But it was fleeting, and she resigned herself to her lot.
I was determined never to live my mother’s life.
What a surprise for me to discover that many of the women I treated had had similar childhoods. In fact, the suburbs of any city post-war were filled with unhappy, suffering housewives. Many of them were medicated, like my mother. The Rolling Stones wrote a song about it: Mother’s Little Helper.
From my training I knew that genetics, epigenetics and trauma were implicated in mental illness, but I also began to wonder how much of the mental illness in this world has to do with people being unable to fully express who they really are. Their dreams shredded, they had no possibility to fulfill themselves.
Over the past 30+ years as a psychiatrist, I have helped many clients
improve their mental health and overcome emotional challenges.
We have not been supported to recognize our brilliance, our incredible gifts, our innate talents. I developed a passion to help women uncover their unique gifts and create lives of joy, of true fulfillment. As a Life Coach, I have been helping women transition from coping to healing and thriving. And in so doing, light up the world.
