Lisa is a psychologist who is warm, approachable and has worked with people facing all kinds of difficulties. Lisa enjoys assisting people who are at a baseline level of wellbeing to close the gap between where they are now and the life they really want. This may involve fostering self-compassion, dismantling a sneaky inner critic or exploring long-held family patterns contributing to people-pleasing and self sacrifice. Lisa assists people who are feeling 'blah' and 'meh' to move towards fulfilled and thriving. This occurs through reconnection to self, sometimes after years of conditioning and "shoulds" from others and society.

I am a counsellor and body-based psychotherapist with special interests in all aspects women’s health, trauma and couples therapy. I work collaboratively with clients to find a place of healing and recovery and I'm not the kind of therapist that is ok with “feeling better” if better is still a long way off being truly well. That’s why I feel such an affinity with the word ‘wellbeing’. as it is much more than the absence of disease or illness. Wellbeing is a multidimensional mix of getting your physical, mental and social health in balance, and I have a team of Counsellors working at the practice to support you in your healing.

For any individual attending counselling, it can be quite a vulnerable and challenging experience. My aim is to ensure that you feel comfortable and safe from the beginning and to demonstrate that in sessions there is no judgement nor negativity, but rather a collaborative approach towards the goals you want. This may include improving mood, self-esteem, motivation, coping styles or gaining understanding and awareness of your own mental health. Counselling for me is about unconditional support to ensure we are actively discussing aspects of your life that may be impacting you, with therapy tailored specifically to you.
