About me

Sometimes life can feel like a struggle, or it may feel like you have lost direction. This can be because of things that have happened to you or around you, or it could be that things don't feel right within you. Counselling can give you the space to explore what's going on for you.

You don't need to feel like you're in crisis to have counselling. It's a way to take care of yourself on the inside.

​When we work together you'll have a safe, empathic, and non-judgemental space to explore where you're at and what's going on for you. This will help you gain a better understanding of yourself, and find a clearer path forward in your life.

​I offer walk and talk sessions, as I've found that walking in nature can help people to relax and find clarity about what's happening for them. You can find out more about this in the video below.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm Lisa, and I believe that you are the expert on you. My aim is to help you to believe and trust in this.

​I'm a COSCA qualified person-centred counsellor and a member of the BACP. This means that I follow the COSCA Code of Ethics, and the BACP Ethical Framework in the work I do. I work with adults (18+) who are facing issues such as anxiety and panic, depression, bereavement and loss, trauma, and low self-esteem.

​My role in our work together is to create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore what's going on for you. I'll draw on my professional skills and on the trust and connection we build to help you on your journey.

You hold the map. I'll accompany you and help you make sense of it.

​I'm excited to meet you and see where we can go.

​I'm based in Linlithgow, Scotland but can offer online counselling to anyone in the UK.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
