About me

Currently offering on-line Therapy Only: I am a UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) registered and qualified Psychotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. My approach to therapy is concerned with listening deeply to you and responding in a way that values you as an individual and what you are bringing. I work with people from all walks of life. My approach brings together a trust in the wisdom of the psyche and a care for the soul. It is grounded in transpersonal integrative theory and informed by work with the body, dream work, the creative imagination, and systems theory.

I believe that we are all unique and individual souls on a journey through life, that we are more than our problems and our failures, and that at the deepest levels of our selves we are wise beings seeking to express our potential into the world.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can offer a safe, caring space for you to understand your soul’s purpose, to make sense of the relationships and challenges of your life’s path, and to heal the dysfunctional patterns and habits that interfere with your well-being. I have been working as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist for over seven years.

I also have over twenty-five years experience of working in the private sector with individuals, teams and groups in the areas of organisational development, personal and team development. I am the Founder/Director of http://www.alchemy-consulting.eu an organisational development consultancy.

I work using the professional, ethical guidelines of UKCP. Please see my website www.lisagarveywilliams.com for further details.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have Diplomas in both Psychotherapy and Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London. I also have a Masters degree in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy from the same Institute in London, which is affiliated with Middlesex University. My approach is founded upon the work of Roberto Assagioli who was as Italian psychiatrist, a colleague of Freud and Jung. He studied in depth both Eastern and Western traditions, philosophy and mysticism. The integration and synthesis of these wisdoms makes Psychosynthesis therapy and counselling unique.

I have a Masters degree in HR Strategy and a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages (French and German). My background and training is in Organisation Development and Executive Coaching. I also work as a consultant to a variety of organisations, designing and facilitating group workshops and working with teams. I am the founder/director of Alchemy Consulting (http://www.alchemy-consulting.eu)

I am a yoga and meditation teacher.

I am a registered and qualified member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy). I am a also a chartered member of the CIPD, and a Fellow of the RSA.
