I am a kind and empathetic psychotherapist providing a safe, calm and non-judgemental environment. I'd like to help you work towards leading a more fulfilled and happy life. We all need time and space to talk, whether it’s a complex issue, a change/upheaval, long standing difficulty or you simply need some “me time”. My therapeutic style is compassion focused; we could all benefit from being a little kinder to ourselves. My goal is for you to build healthier coping tools, emotional resilience and start living the life you want to live.

*Offering online/telephone/walking counselling * Hello, my name is Lisa, I’m a qualified counsellor based in Knutsford, Cheshire. We have all faced times in our lives where we have encountered struggles, felt overwhelmed and maybe experiencing problems such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues or losing sense of who we are. You may have support from people around you and gain comfort from this, although sometimes what you may want to talk about may not be simply shared. This is when a talking to a professional counsellor may help to explore coping strategies and work together towards the results you may desire.

People decide to look for therapy for many reasons; stress, anxiety or depression, difficulties in relationships; anything that's stopping them living the life they want. I place importance on helping clients understand the causes, not simply focusing on the symptoms. Ultimately, knowing yourself better is the key to a more fulfilling life, with improved relationships and feeling better within yourself on a day to day basis.

Are you struggling, maybe having problems with your relationship, family or friends? Maybe you are feeling dissatisfied, overwhelmed, guilty, upset or angry? Whatever feelings you have, it usually means pain for you in some way. Counselling isn’t just something people do when they are in crisis or at rock bottom, attending before problems snowball or get too overwhelming can help and save more pain in the long run. Many clients feel lighter and better after the first session because therapy can really help.

If you would describe yourself as a People-Pleaser, keep on reading. I work with women who struggle to say no, feel guilty all the time, and feel selfish when they look after their own needs. People pleasing is exhausting. I know, I've been there myself. I can help you to learn how to treat yourself with the same compassion as you do others, to learn how to put the boundaries in place that you so desperately need, to develop friendships that give you the connection and two-way support you wish for, and most importantly to learn how to say no without overwhelming feelings of guilt.

Work with me to quickly and efficiently clear whatever is holding you back. Or maybe you just need someone you feel safe to talk with. How would you feel if you didn’t have those difficult feelings or traumatic memories? Those feelings that can seem impossible or overwhelming really can feel different. Or perhaps you have a current situation to deal with and do not want to dive into the past - I will not make you start from the "beginning". We can work through your experiences in a gentle way, and it could even be fun! Well done on getting this far and considering some support at this time - I would be pleased to work with you.

I am passionate in helping individuals and couples to take the right steps for them. I support my clients, to make a difference or find an acceptance in their life. I work with my clients in exploring the difficulties fears re experiencing and we work to gain an understanding of thoughts and feelings. Their emotional disturbance can be discussed and put in to perspective to help make changes to the unhealthy thought or behavioural patterns. Sometimes, addressing where the negative beliefs have originated from, helps to find the positive changes and overcomes the difficulties. Giving my clients a new awareness, growth and belief.

Welcome I’m Sally, life is a roller coaster, we ride the highs and struggle with the painful lows. I understand taking the step to seek help and share your experiences is hard and scary, it takes courage, so trust is paramount within the therapeutic relationship. I offer a safe, supportive, non judgmental and empathetic environment, taking your direction to walk along side you. Time is precious, our own needs are usually low on our list. Focusing on ourselves and investing in our well-being enables growth and clarity. Self love is core in all of our relationships. Finding our own inner happiness and taking power back, creates peace

If you have been struggling with anxiety, self-criticism, shame, low mood, difficult emotions & relationships, it may be the right time to find a trusted therapist; someone to help you understand & grow from the effects of adversity, stress & trauma. Our wellbeing can be affected by many things - work stress, early adversity, significant trauma or relationships, and we do our best to find helpful coping strategies. When our ways of coping don't work so well, we can feel stuck and isolated - psychological therapy can help us move beyond those barriers. I focus on you as an individual, without using labels or diagnoses.
