Lordia Lewis-Spencer Reg. MBACP, MBAATN
My direction towards self-development has exposed me to deep & wonderful values. I now understand that feelings don’t need to be avoided or feared, they just are. I know people are all inherently creative & given the right environment of empathy, non-judgmental & unconditional positive regard everyone can find their way.
During my studies at Roehampton University, I was actively encouraged to engage in therapy so I could first experience what it means to be a client while exploring my own issues & promote emotional growth. This has been a deep, extensive journey into oneself which has supported me, not only in my work, but also in personal my life.
