Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. We all need support in life and at times, we reach out to therapy to provide us with that support. Therapy can help us to understand complex emotions, behaviours, or to learn more about ourselves. Sometimes it is just nice to talk to someone who is hearing and feeling what is going on for you. I can offer you a non-judgemental space to explore whatever it is you need support with. Together, we can work through your fears, your difficult memories or whatever is hindering you in life.

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I recognise that starting counselling can be challenging however it can also provide opportunities for personal development and a better understanding of our current situation. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is extremely important, and is the foundation of all the work we do together. The relationship is built on respect, honesty and the use of empathy.

Hi. At times we are challenged in life and we may need help to work through the issues that can affect us. Whatever we are experiencing, it can impact on our whole life greatly. At times admitting we need help can be a long and hard journey. Just getting to this point of looking for a therapist means you’ve addressed so much already and that you wish to take the next step. It's finding the right therapist for you, just like any other relationship is how you connect that enables you to feel safe and be open so you can work through your issues. So take your time to find the right one as that relationship can help you so much.

Do you feel different than other people, like nobody seems to understand you? Do you often feel like an outsider? Perhaps you have trouble standing up for yourself or speaking your truth. Do you tend to cater to other people's needs and don’t get what you need? Do people sometimes tell you that you're a loving and giving person, but you feel flawed and unlovable? Do you feel uncomfortable in social situations, fearing that people will reject you if you stand out? Do you feel depressed? Do you often feel anxious? Perhaps you often don’t know what you need or want. Are you very hard on yourself and have lots of self-critical thoughts?

I understand therapy can feel really daunting and scary at times, the good news is that you are looking here to make a start. We are not designed to figure out life and all its complexities alone. We can see and experience a lot in our lives and that can have a significant impact on us. It can be exhausting but it doesn't have to be like that. You deserve happiness and emotional freedom and I can help you to achieve that. I am relational and supportive in my style and create a bespoke therapy suited for the individual using several evidence-based interventions to help people improve their psychological and emotional well-being.

Most clients contact us with surface negative symptoms or challenges. Every client is totally unique, therefore our truly one-off, made-to-measure approach is needed and always provided. Most clients help us to slowly identify the real current trigger(s), creating the negative presenting symptoms or challenges. Finally, our last step in helping you gain a positive, confident and happier future, is to discover your deepest root causes, which created the very first trigger(s). To put it simply, our driving force from day one is to help you quickly ensure you gain much improved: thinking, feeling and behaviour.

The hardest thing is to take that first step and figure out what’s happening in your life, to trust someone with what you’re going to tell them, your most private thoughts or feelings or what’s happened to you. Yet, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning, free of emotional pain and distress. Your story is not trivial, and I’m ready to listen and help you to find the answers you need and support you with the appropriate coping mechanisms.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Wakefield, or Child Psychologists in Wakefield.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.
