A safe space for accessible therapy.
Each person is unique. As an Integrative therapist Lisa offers a flexible and creative approach for everyone she works with. She draws upon various approaches such as psychodynamic, humanistic and body psychotherapy.
“The relationship between us will be a unique and important part of our work. I welcome feedback along the way, so together we can find out what is right for you. I work interactively, meaning that I engage with and respond to you and what you present, rather than taking the ‘blank screen’ approach.”
Counselling is usually shorter term work, often focussing on a specific issue or agreed goal. Psychotherapy involves long-term or open-ended work, and may delve more deeply into your unconscious patterns and conflicts. Often goals can change over time and this is something you can discuss as you go along.
I am an experienced therapist with my own private practice. I’ve seen clients in a variety of settings, such as at Hackney and City Careers Centre and at a low cost therapy service in Wandsworth, meaning I’ve worked with and welcome clients from diverse backgrounds. I have worked with a wide range of issues including, but not exclusively; anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement, trauma, relationship issues, sexuality, feelings of overwhelm, intrusive thoughts, anger, identity issues and abuse.
My background is in education. I specialized in supporting teenagers and their families who were experiencing difficulties in mainstream schools. This experience led me to counselling and psychotherapy, as I wanted to support more fully individuals with specific needs.
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre, one of the leading Integrative psychotherapy training institutes in the country, and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics Additionally, to further deepen my knowledge and skills I am undertaking a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy at the Minster Centre.
