Hello my name is Lisa Rowe, I am a friendly, caring and passionate Qualified Humanistic Counsellor, I specialise in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer individual's one to one weekly Counselling sessions for short term or long term. Counselling is a therapy which involves talking for you to explore your feelings and thoughts. I will provide you with a safe and supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment, a space for you to explore any issues or problems that you may have and I will listen to you empathically.
Are you anxious, depressed, feeling stressed or issues getting you down? Sometimes life can be overwhelming and with no one to turn to. Life experiences may bring feelings of anger, fear or pain and by talking and understanding your individual situation together we can begin to make sense of it. Counselling can help you to deal with and recognise stress, anxiety, anger and any other emotions you may be experiencing. Having a safe place where you can just be yourself, express your feelings and emotions without having to feel you are burdening your loved ones can make all the difference.

You know something isn’t right in your life, but you don’t quite know where to begin to get help. Maybe the idea of speaking with somebody feels a little daunting, or you’re concerned you won’t be able to find the words, or they won’t understand where you’re coming from. This is absolutely normal, and is what most people feel before the call a therapist to get help. Even if you’ve been to counselling and psychotherapy before, the thought of explaining your story yet again might fill you with dread. What you could really do with is somebody that gets it, that you can feel comfortable with, that can help you feel understood, quickly.
Have you reached a point where you sense you just can’t carry on feeling this way? Maybe it’s a recent breakup, or a build up of feelings that’s just all become too much to cope with on your own. Perhaps you are carrying a silent pain that you wish the people around you could see. Maybe you are tired of not feeling understood by those closest to you. I wonder if you have lost your trust in others, and reaching out for help often feels impossible. I specialize in working with people to make sense of their past and how it is affecting the present. You are really not alone, and I would like to help, your feelings do matter.

I work holistically with the whole person rather than the issue. . Therapy is a dynamic process and is most effective when it is collaborative. Listening, understanding and offering a non-judgemental space is proven to be the most effective way to help clients. Rather than being seen as the expert and directing the therapy, the counsellor works to create a relationship where you feel safe, understood and accepted. Experiencing these conditions can help you come to terms with feelings, experiences and events and help you to heal, change and develop in your own way.
I believe that we are a product of our pasts but that does not define who we are today.
