APPOINTMENTS NOW OFFERED SATURDAY MORNINGS. When was the last time you held space for yourself? I believe that it’s okay to ask for help. In fact, I think it’s a privilege to hear your story––it takes courage to share. I specialise in women’s mental health support and both pre- and post-natal parental wellbeing, to constructively and positively help you to shift your worries and overcome life’s challenges.
Through counselling, we work together to release you from your struggles. You'll learn simple, practical skills and strategies to gain clarity so you can return to living on the upside. As a professional woman, and a wife and mother to three thriving children in a blended family environment, I understand that life can be complicated.
Sometimes you just need someone to listen and focus on you. If you aren't currently loving life––then you need to find out why. Let's work together and set you on the path to empowering your inner feel good. Be more than your thoughts. Be the awareness behind them. Managing life is easier with support and skills. I look forward to talking with you. Lisa

Looking on the Upside - Women's Wellness

As women, we often carry the mental load that is often heavy to shoulder. Run as a morning program; we identify what is holding us back, discover our stuck points and learn what areas we are lacking in our lives. By working through simple and fun exercises you will gain confidence, rediscover what is important to you and your purpose. We ditch the vision boards and create a more in-depth values board instead that will act as the lighthouse for your life and keep you on track to living a full life. Come be with like-minded women.
