Lisa Thomas M.Sc, MBACP (accred), FCIPD
There are times when you may feel that you need support to deal with events and changes in your life and during such times it can be helpful to talk to a trained professional counsellor/psychotherapist.
I have many years experience working with individuals and with teams within voluntary settings, business settings, educational settings and private consultancy. I am an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist working in private practice in Romsey/ Southampton and I am a Tutor on Counselling Training Courses.
I am a fully qualified and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I work with adults, children and young people.
I offer both short-term and open ended long-term counselling. On some occasions just one assessment and one further session may be all that is required.
I have extensive training which enables me to offer you a safe, non-judgemental space and an individual counselling service to suit you. I am very flexible and my work is tailored to meet your individual needs and preferences.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
90 minute initial session - £60.00
50 minute weekly sessions - £50.00
Fees and duration of counselling can be discussed further at our first meeting. (Should you be experiencing financial difficulty a reduced rate can be negotiated).
My accreditation is reviewed annually to ensure that my continuous professional development and high standard of counselling and psychotherapy is maintained. I work within the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists ethical framework to ensure professional practice.
