Hi, I’m Lisa
Thank you for taking the time to read about me and the services I offer.
My therapy approach is Person Centred, this means that you, the client, lead the content and direction of each session. My role as a counsellor is to actively listen and support you to find your own solutions to issues you might have. Helping you manage the difficulties in your life in a non-judgemental way and helping you gain the confidence to make changes yourself.
The Person Centred Approach is a approach to human relationships. It values attitudes such as: not judging others, trying to understand the experiences of others from their point of view, and fully honouring the uniqueness of the individuals in a genuine and heartfelt way.
I’m a qualified friendly counsellor who people find easy to approach, I've helped my clients break through the obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life and helped them manage the difficulties they are going through, being there to listen and support them at stressful times.
Some people at times in their lives have moments when they just want to curl up in a ball, feel comforted and just stay there not facing the difficult times they are going through. It can be hard opening up to friends and family and although this is good if you can do this, sometimes it just isn't enough. You can feel like that is all you ever do rant and off load to certain people.
The service and attention I aim to provide you with will be the thing which makes the difference to the outcome of your counselling. I would like you to leave feeling comfortable and confident that I will hold your most difficult and personal moments until you return. I am here to offer you all you need to explore yourself and reach whatever goal you wish to. I can work with you to help you gain some understanding about who you are and what may be causing you distress. I'm aware that we are all individuals and your worries and stresses are just that, your own individual emotions that you have to deal with in a way that is right for you.
Counselling is time for you and I want you to feel comfortable, safe and trusting of me.
If this sounds like the kind of counselling you would like to have, please contact me and see what time I can offer you.

Private Practice - BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
