I’m Lisa, I offer a confidential, safe, non-judgemental environment which allows you to begin your story where you wish.
When you are feeling vulnerable, the path to therapy can feel overwhelming.
I truly believe that therapy needs a good relationship between counsellor and client to enable the client to begin to feel safe to explore. Building a relationship on trust, empathy and honesty, we all have the potential to grow. I understand that life doesn't always provide us with the right conditions.
My role is supporting my clients whilst they begin a journey of self discovery. Working at that their own pace, keeping their agenda. Supporting them, empowering them to work towards finding the answers within.
As an experienced integrative counsellor, I am able to bring together different elements of therapy enabling me to support my client with what they may be dealing with in their life.
Please be aware I am only available to work during term times.
What To Expect In Your First Session
Our assessment will give us the opportunity to meet each other and discuss your needs and check that we are compatible to work together. There is no obligation to continue.
If you would like to contact me to discuss any aspects of the counselling please call on 07789722843. If I am not available please leave a message and I will contact you as soon as I’m available.

I am committed to regular monthly clinical supervision
Due to mandatory continual professional development (CPD) I regularly update my knowledge and understanding working within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework for good practice
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
