Do you want someone to listen to how you really feel? Perhaps you are going through a difficult time and wanting to talk without burdening your family? Do you wonder why you are repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour or relationships? Do you feel overwhelmed and trapped in a cycle of feeling low and down? Are you thinking you'll just have to put up with life and feel stuck? Why wait months for an appointment - take matters in your own hands! Contact Me - I want to listen. Let's work it out together.
Hi, my name is Lisa. I offer a safe and confidential space where you are accepted for who you are and invited to explore what’s holding you back from who you could be. I believe that treating someone with warmth, compassion and acceptance without judgment or criticism allows you to explore and work through what are sometimes painful or difficult feelings.
I place great importance on creating a positive therapeutic and empathic relationship in order to facilitate positive changes to your life. I invite self-awareness through the exploration of thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I also believe that the past effects the present and in order to move forward we can take an honest journey together exploring life experiences.
The past cannot be changed; the childhood cannot be redone, and no longer be ignored. Our lives are shaped by the past. By the things we’ve learned about people, about the world and the ways we’ve learned to relate to others. You really can relearn new ways of relating, thinking about yourself in a more productive positive way.
