Lisa Robinson Integrative Psychotherapist MSC (UKCP Accred.) & Life Coach
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed and getting anxiety? Looking for help when you are struggling emotionally, means that you are taking a big step in the right direction and it takes great courage. It also shows huge strength within a person and means that you are on your journey to starting to feel happier.
I am a qualified and experienced integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and life coach and I genuinely love what I do. I've been practicing as a therapist for over 12 years. I work with adults, and also specialise in working with children, young people and young adults. I work with a Gestalt core philosophy, which is an holistic approach integrating other models of therapy. The secret to therapy being successful, I feel, is down to feeling safe, comfortable and being able to talk openly and honestly to a therapist who genuinely cares about how you feel. We all know when someone cares, because we can feel it.
At various times in life we all need help in order to cope even better, during difficult times, sometimes we can feel overwhelmed and stressed, feel anxious, need help accepting and adjusting to things we cannot control, our lives changing, or to make changes in order to feel happier and even simply to enhance how we feel, feel more confident, fulfil our potential and to become our best selves. It's all natural and part of being human. Feeling able to relax, to be yourself and be authentic is the key to a successful and happy life. I believe that we all can be, and deserve to be happy.
I work long term with people but can also work short term, depending on what is needed. I offer a free introductory session over the phone so that you can see how you feel and decide if I am the therapist for you. This is particularly important when I work with children and young people, as the therapy will not be successful if only the parents want support for their child. They must want the support themselves. In situations where children or young people maybe reluctant to access therapy, I am happy to meet up in person for free, for them to talk and get a chance to meet me, so that they can make their own decision.
I work with integrity and when you choose to work with me, I can promise you that I will always do my best to help.

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.
