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.

Training, qualifications & experience
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, bereavement, 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. Additionally, to further deepen my knowledge and skills, I am undertaking a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre.
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 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.
