We all experience difficulties in our lives at some point, and counselling and psychotherapy provide a confidential, non-judgemental space to explore these experiences. Exploring your thoughts and feelings with another enables a deeper level of awareness and connection with yourself and others, helping take stock and enabling a richer life.
My name is Lisa Baum and I am an experienced Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor working in Peckham. I offer a space that is warm, respectful and empathetic. Sharing what's going on for you can be a relief. I will listen to you carefully, provide honest observations and feedback, and ask questions to gently guide your exploration. This process will offer you new perspectives and new ways of thinking, feeling and being.
*I am now working online and in-person*
Training, qualifications & experience
In addition to my private practice, I've seen clients in various settings, such as at Hackney and City Careers Centre and a low-cost therapy service in Wandsworth, meaning I've worked with and welcome clients from diverse backgrounds. I have worked with a wide range of issues, including, but not exclusively, anxiety, depression, loss, grief, trauma, relationship issues, sexuality, feelings of overwhelm, intrusive thoughts, anger, identity issues and abuse.
I trained at the Minster Centre, one of the leading Integrative psychotherapy training institutes and I have the following qualifications:
- Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling
- Advanced Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling
- MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics.
My background is in education. I specialised in supporting teenagers and their families who were experiencing difficulties in mainstream schools. This experience led me to counselling and psychotherapy, as I wanted to support more fully individuals with specific needs.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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.
