Lisa Maycock MSc HRM, BSc(Hons) Integrative Counselling, Registered Member BACP
Are you currently struggling to cope and/or in need of assistance to help you get through a difficult situation? Perhaps you feel you need to identify and/or make a change to your current circumstances to improve your life or just feel happier/more comfortable in your own skin? You may be feeling quite stuck and feel you could use a safe space to explore a long-term issue or talk through a more recent situation and identify possible options/solutions going forward? Many of these scenarios can severely affect you and directly interfere with your quality of life, your decision making abilities and ultimately, your happiness. Counselling can help!
Congratulations. You have already made the most difficult decision - to seek help and support. You really have nothing to lose; why not book an initial free consultation appointment to discuss your situation in more detail before you decide if counselling is for you?
I have 17+ years experience in a variety of settings (agency, volunteer and private practice), working with individuals as well as running groups. I offer a warm, collaborative, nonjudgmental and supportive counselling service in a safe, confidential setting using a variety of models, including person-centred Counselling and Cognitive Behavourial Therapy (CBT).
I have a wide range of experience working with clients who have struggled with addictions (drugs/alcohol/food/gambling etc), anxiety, depression, relationship issues, domestic violence, adoption, intimacy issues, workplace stress, phobias, work/life balance, eating disorders, self-harm, bereavement, self-destruction as well as more general issues of low self-esteem and lack of confidence.
Short or long-term counselling options are available to help you meet YOUR goals in therapy. I offer a free initial consultation which will allow you to discuss what you hope to achieve in therapy. Together, we will determine the best way to reach your objectives and this will be adapted, as necessary, throughout our therapeutic relationship.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any queries you have regarding the counselling process prior to making a consultation appointment.
I look forward to hearing from you.
