Lisa McEvoy MBACP, BSc (Hons)
I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I offer a quiet and confidential setting in which you can explore and gain a deeper understanding of the issues that have brought you to counselling. I believe that people are unique and that no single approach can work for everyone. I therefore work in an integrative way which means I use interventions from different and established counselling techniques that are most appropriate to your specific needs.
This will start with an initial session where we can explore the issues that have bought you to counselling and decide upon working together. During our time together, I will listen with care, working only at your pace to try and find ways of helping you live a more satisfying life. Depending on your individual needs and circumstances you may wish to work together for a few weeks or for a longer term. Deciding how much counselling support you need is entirely up to you.
