Lisa Winfield, Counsellor (MBACP)
I am committed and passionate about supporting clients in their search for managing anxiety, depression, cope with life-changing events such as bereavement, divorce, illness or feelings of being stuck and not knowing how to move forwards.
What is counselling?
‘Counselling and psychotherapy are umbrella terms that cover a range of talking therapies. They are delivered by trained practitioners who work with people over a short or long term to help them bring about effective change or enhance wellbeing.’ (BACP)
How I Work
Life can be difficult so I aim to provide a warm, welcoming and confidential place for you to take the time to acknowledge and reflect upon difficulties. I offer a supportive, non-judgemental space where we can work through your anxieties and concerns together.
I recognise how our past can resonate down the years to affect the here and now and my focus is to support each client’s unique exploration of their feelings, relationships, hopes and fears both in the past and present so that they can live more fulfilling lives.
In my practice, I combine aspects of my humanistic, relational and cognitive behavioural training.
I also find that mindfulness, awareness of thoughts, feelings, body sensations and the world around us, can help clients get back in touch with themselves and enjoy simple pleasures in the moment.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (registration number: 343279) and as such adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
Please feel free to call me (07740 306 266) to talk confidentiality about your needs and to discuss any questions you may have.
Alternatively you can email me at email@example.com
We can arrange a suitable time to meet for a preliminary assessment session, which I offer at £30, where we can discuss what you would like to get out of counselling and if you feel we could work together.
If you are happy to go forward we will continue to meet weekly at the same time and place.
