Lisa Bostock-Shelley MBACP (Accred.)
Hello, I'm Lisa, a Humanistic Counsellor and an Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I offer a confidential, warm and supportive environment, so that you may feel comfortable enough to explore what has brought you to counselling. If you are feeling anxious, angry or sad, especially whilst we are in the midst of Covid 19, counselling may help you to find understanding and renewed hope. As an alternative, I am currently providing counselling via telephone or video call using Zoom until we are able to meet in person.
Together we work, at your pace, with what is informing your emotions and responses so that awareness, understanding and change may happen. Conflict within ourselves or in a relationship with others can leave us with a lack of clarity, feeling confused and sometimes anxious. Loss can leave us overwhelmed. Working with our past and present experiences can enable us to live our life in an authentic and fulfilling way, one which is right for us.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
