There may be specific issues you are trying to work through, or you may be experiencing a more general loss of personal direction. Either way, the decision to begin counselling can be a really daunting one. I understand and I'm here to share the challenge with you. You're in safe hands.
I work with problems including depression, anxiety and low self-esteem and have a special interest in Autism and Aspergers, particularly in supporting adults who find they are struggling to come to terms with what it means to be autistic. I work in private practice and as a counsellor at Understanding Autism North West.
Life has changed so much in the past months, and we are seeing the impacts of that change on mental health. The spirit of 'just carry on' can only last so long before you need to talk, shout, scream and cry, to allow yourself the time for that to put you first. My experiences in the voluntary sector and private practice have shown me that no matter where you are in life, emotional issues and crisis are levelling, their impact devastating and to admit you need to talk to someone in itself can feel daunting. However this in itself can be a positive first step to gaining a healthier relationship with yourself.

There is so much focus these days on "What's wrong with you" using terms such as 'depression', 'anxiety', 'disorder', rather than talking about "What happened to you?" Your mental health is much more than just a label or a diagnosis and therapy offers so much more than just talking. It can give you new understanding, new insights, a different perspective, clarity about a problem and the way forward. It can teach you skills to live your life better, teach you more healthy coping strategies or simply give you the space and time for self reflection and a place to find peace of mind.
I am a highly qualified and experienced consultant psychotherapist and supervisor with 20 years experience and recognised clinical expertise in the treatment and assessment of a wide range of mental health problems (including: depression, anxiety, personality disorders and psychosis), problematic behaviours and addictions. My guiding aim is to help each client to the point where they no longer require therapy or medication, and can cope skilfully and independently with life’s challenges, and understand how the past can impede our ability to cope with the present.
Sometimes the issues we face paralyse us with anxieties. Sometimes we have no one in our lives who are able to help or we may not want to burden others. It’s difficult to trust people with our innermost worries, feelings and thoughts. Yet we all need help to get through difficult periods in our lives. It may be that friends and family tell us to stop dwelling on the past or try and move on. But no matter how hard we try, the past hangs around to haunt us or we have no words to describe what we feel. Additionally, we may wish to explore our experience for personal or professional reasons.
I am a fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor and Eating Disorder Practitioner endorsed by the National Centre for Eating Disorders. I offer you a supportive environment for you to explore life’s difficulties and challenges ethically, safely and without judgement. My belief is that no matter what age we are, we all have the potential for growth and change and it is a continuous process.
People often first come for counselling when they begin to experience symptoms of low mood and anxiety such as disturbed sleep, low levels of motivation and energy, or increased rates of irritability and tension which just don’t seem to shift. These symptoms could be related to a significantly upsetting event, or they might be linked to a background of adversities and difficulties. Either way, you might be hoping to improve your mood and to reduce feelings of anxiety or panic, to regain a sense of confidence and self esteem, and to feel more energised and motivated. People often say they want to get back to their old self again.

Life can be a struggle sometimes or it may have always been this way for you. You may feel that you live life just going through the motions, but inside you’re screaming. Maybe you feel empty or constantly angry. Perhaps you’ve lost yourself and don’t know how to find ‘you’ again. It could be that everything is an effort and you lack motivation, or you’ve lost your purpose in life. You may be stuck with negative thoughts about yourself or others; feeling lonely, angry, shame, guilty, grief, anxiety or sadness.
I have 25 years experience of working with various groups of people of all ages within various settings such as schools, colleges, hospitals and Women's refuges. I work with in an Integrative Model which means I can tailor your therapy to suit your needs. I am able to move at a pace with which you feel comfortable allowing you the time and space you may need to give you a better understanding of what is happening for you.
Psychotherapy is as individual as you are. What suits one person will not be suitable for another. I offer a variety of techniques and disciplines with one thing in common - you. Together we will find a path that can lead to you feeling healthier and more balanced. I offer talking therapy, with a psychodynamic focus, and Dramatherapy - a creative psychotherapy, which can utilise one to one talking therapies, as well as elements of art work, play, stories, myths and movement. Working creatively can often reach the parts of the brain that talking can’t, allowing for a deeper exploration and opportunity for healing.
My professional experience is extensive and includes addiction, suicidal ideation, low self-esteem and domestic abuse. I have worked for the Survivors Trust, where I counselled survivors of rape, sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse. I have also worked in prisons, counselling individuals with substance misuse, depression, anxiety, grief, relational problems and other mental health related issues. I am also able to make home visits particularly for those struggling to get out for whatever reason, often disability or agoraphobia.
Are you struggling at the moment feeling stressed, confused, frustrated, depressed, hopeless or stuck in dark place? Sometimes life gets overwhelming and difficult to face. Speaking with the right counsellor can help you explore all these "tangled" thoughts and feelings making it easier to look at them and gradually make sense of what you are going through. I offer a humanistic approach using different techniques (creative, mindfulness, CFT, CBT, solution-focused) that help you to see things differently and find ways to move forward with a new perspective and deeper peace. I also offer children and young people counselling.
I am a passionate and dedicated Psychosexual Therapist, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and EMDR Therapist. I provide mainstream CBT intervention or more specialised psychosexual work with individuals and couples.

My specialised training allows me to use a dynamic approach that motivates individuals to self empowerment. I am also a qualified and experienced supervisor for other therapists and health professionals.
Does life feel overwhelming? Are you being heard? Feeling low? Are you experiencing unpleasant thoughts and feelings that you are struggling to handle? At times we can all struggle. Whether that be with events from the past or ongoing situations. We are only human, and emotions do have the ability to take their toll. At times it can be easier to talk to a stranger than to someone you know. So let me introduce myself.... My name is Lisa, I am a qualified therapist. Whilst volunteering for numerous charities I have gained experience of working with adults with varying problems from low self-esteem, anxiety, depression to abuse.
