Lisa Crossman Bsc (Hons) Psy. MBACP. Adv.Dip Couns. MSc OP
At times life situations or events can cause worry or continuous thoughts and feelings which we can’t seem to overcome. This can throw us off balance as feelings of anxiety, stress and depression surface. For many years, I have worked with people to manage their thoughts and behaviours whether they be personal, work or relationship difficulties; helping them to become unstuck and move forward towards better well-being; feeling less stuck and held back.
I qualified in 2005 and have been working for large charities, private practice and public sector organisations ever since. My own background is diverse in heritage as is my family background. Due to this I have worked with people all over the world and people in non-traditional family settings, blended families etc. I also have experience of working with childhood bereavement, parental separation, identity and self-discovery and the impact this has on relationships and feeling secure in oneself.
Training, qualifications & experience
I work from an integrative stance, meaning that I can adopt a way of working which is personalised to each individual person. However, I also use many of the techniques of acceptance and commitment therapy which helps clients to move further towards what they want and how they want to be in life in few sessions, skilfully managing the thoughts and behaviours which have kept them angry, upset, sad and ultimately away from their goals.
I also coach for performance, life change and balance, having coached people primarily from the safeguarding, creative arts, and music sectors.
I am qualified and therefore make a conscious and positive decision to work by the BACP code of ethics, which is integral for client/therapist trust and safety.
Call me to see how we get on and how I can help you make the changes like I have done with so many others. What do you have to lose from one call?

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.
