Lisa Fairhead Counsellor Psychotherapist MA (MBACP)
I am a experienced Adult and Couples Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I offer short and long-term therapy for a wide range of issues such as communication and relationship breakdowns; anxiety and stress, the impact of life events; family issues; trauma, loss and bereavement.
Alongside my private practice, I had worked at Relate for 10 years, providing counselling to Couples, Individuals and Families. I am also a Young Person’s school-based counsellor in a large secondary school two days a week.
I work collaboratively with you, to identify and acknowledge how your past and present relationships and family backgrounds may have influenced where you are now. Wherever you are on your journey, counselling gives you the opportunity to challenge the difficult issues and unhelpful patterns of behaviour. My role as your therapist would be to offer you a supportive, safe and confidential environment to explore what is required to bring about realistic and lasting changes that are in your best interest.
You can either reach my practice by email or the confidential line 07970773939. If when you call I am unavailable, please leave your name and contact number and I will call you as soon as I become available.

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.

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).
