About me

Hello my name is Lisa and I am a qualified psychotherapist and mental health practitioner working both privately and within the NHS.

My Philosophy

Throughout my professional career I have witnessed how life challenges us as individuals and without the right support these difficult times can be even more painful to get through. I have seen the courage shown by clients when wanting to live a different way from that which their situation dictates and it is a privilege to be a part of the support that enables change.

I have found both personally and professionally that therapy can facilitate the change in feelings and behaviours enabling us to live a life that we find more satisfying. I believe that the opportunity to explore how we are living and personally develop ourselves is an invaluable experience that anyone can benefit from.

My Approach

I don’t push or pull you in a direction, but work alongside you, and through talking about how we think , feel and behave will facilitate you to resolve the issues that may have been troubling or unresolved. Transactional Analysis and Compassion Focused Therapy are key parts of this work for me and I find that they provide a different way of considering how we relate to others and help us to view difficult situations with differing perspectives. I have found through my work with clients and my own personal experience that we all have the capacity to find answers and solutions to the challenges we face in our everyday lives. The therapeutic relationship is key to this and I like to find a way to work that suits each individual client whether that is problem solving, finding strategies to help in difficult circumstances or just being present and listening. The rewards of working with a therapist who you can relate and connect too is immensely satisfying, I have seen this in my practice and experienced this within my own personal therapy.
