Lisa Farrell, BA (Hons), MBACP
Does life feel overwhelming? Are you being heard? Feeling low? Are you experiencing unpleasant thoughts and feelings that you are struggling to handle? At times we can all struggle. Whether that be with events from the past or ongoing situations. We are only human, and emotions do have the ability to take their toll.
At times it can be easier to talk to a stranger than to someone you know.
So let me introduce myself… my name is Lisa
Whilst working for numerous charities I have gained experience of working with adults with varying problems from low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bereavements through to sexuality and physical or emotional abuse.
My role is to understand your situation from your perspective, making sure you feel accepted and through discussion are in a better position to better understand and manage your own feelings.
For a period of 16 years I have worked with some of the most vulnerable members of society, during which I was non-judgemental, empathetic, patient and compassionate, showing great understanding that no one person experiences the same circumstances and have different reasons as to why they find themselves where they are.
In this time I have gained transferable skills including various communication styles, which I put to use within the therapy room.
Previous clients have found that counselling helped them by:
• increasing confidence and decision-making skills.
• enhancing interpersonal skills
.• providing a greater sense of self-acceptance and raised self-esteem.
• increased ability to change self-defeating behaviours.
• better expression of emotions
If you feel that I could be the counsellor to work with you, please feel free to contact me. Thanks.
