About me

Hello! I'm Lisa, your friendly and experienced counsellor. With a passion for helping individuals overcome challenges and find their path to success and well-being, I'm here to support, guide, and empower you through your personal journey.

As a trained and empathetic counselor, I understand that life can sometimes feel overwhelming and uncertain. That's why I specialize in providing a safe and non-judgmental space where you can freely express your thoughts, concerns, and feelings. Whether you're navigating difficult relationships, struggling with anxiety or depression, experiencing major life transitions, or simply seeking personal growth, I'm here to listen attentively and offer guidance.

With a blend of evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness techniques, I tailor our sessions to your unique needs and goals. Together, we will work collaboratively to explore your challenges, identify patterns, and develop strategies to overcome obstacles and foster positive change.

My approach is deeply rooted in empathy, respect, and cultural sensitivity. I believe in honoring your individuality and celebrating your strengths. We'll explore your values, beliefs, and aspirations, helping you gain clarity, build resilience, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

I understand that seeking help can be daunting, but rest assured that our sessions will be confidential, compassionate, and supportive. Your well-being is my priority, and I will always strive to create a trusting therapeutic relationship where you feel heard, understood, and valued.

In addition to my counseling qualifications, i use pshchology tools which enables me to provide information and resources relevant to your needs. 

Remember, you don't have to face life's challenges alone. Together, we can navigate the complexities and embrace personal growth. I'm here to support you every step of the way. Let's embark on this journey towards a happier and more fulfilling life together!

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.
