About me

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a fully qualified person centred counsellor with over nine years qualified experience within my profession, however, I have over fourteen years experience of working, training and volunteering within the mental health sector. I am also a registered member of the BACP.

The name of my organisation is Timeout Counselling, and is based in Scotter, and Scunthorpe therefore, close to Scunthorpe, Gainsborough, Brigg, Grimsby, Hull, and surrounding areas.

My main emphasis of work is to facilitate you in gaining a deeper understanding of self and your emotions. The sessions are client lead, both in counselling and in counselling supervision, with the security of professional boundaries in place.

I am available Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings, and some flexibility Tuesday and Thursday daytimes. I also have appointments on a Saturday. If you are interested in finding out more information then please feel free to check out my website, timeout counselling, and my LinkedIn profile.

Member organisations


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.
