Lisa Newton - Foundation Degree, Dip Couns Reg MBACP
Individual counselling for anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, relationships, depression, panic disorders, bereavement or change in routine, any life event or even non event can send us off course.
Through personal and professional experiences I am aware that we often find it difficult to create a space for ourselves in our busy lives where we can begin to discover what is and isn't working for us and who we truly are or would like to be.
I promote mental health and well being by using a variety of evidenced based approaches in my work, depending on what works for you. I aim to provide a safe space where I can support you on your journey. Often looking inwardly can be frightening and embarrassing; the counselling is without judgement, bias or prejudice.
