Hi, my name is Lisa and thanks for visiting my website.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor / Psychotherapist and Life and Career Coach based in North Yorkshire. I practise in York and just outside Scarborough, but also work with clients on Skype across the UK and overseas.
For twenty years I worked in the corporate world of recruitment and coaching, representing international luxury fashion brands, based in London. Through coaching many candidates over the years on their lives and careers I realised this was my passion.
I am now able to offer my clients coaching, consulting (giving advice on cv’s, interviews and presentations etc) and counselling which is something I’m very proud of.
I am extremely passionate about what I do and the most rewarding part of my work is seeing life changing results in my clients. I will support and help you to understand yourself better and work towards achieving your full potential.
I believe that we have within us the resources to change and improve our lives and sometimes we may need someone to help and support us with this. It is often very difficult to talk to people close to you which can make you feel lonely, confused or unsupported. At times like these talking to a Counsellor or Coach about whatever is troubling you may help you find better ways to cope and manage and to move forward in your life in a way that is more satisfying to you.
I will be here to work alongside you, to listen to you in a non judgemental way so that we can build a strong and trusting, equal relationship. I’m not here to advise you but I am here to help and support you to understand yourself better, so that you can identify what you want and need in your life and by working together help you move forward in a more positive way.
Having unique experience as both a Counsellor and Coach I can help you with both if you need this. This would benefit you in not having to source someone else, having to develop a relationship with a second person. We will already know, trust and understand each other and when you have reached your contented present state I can help achieve your future goals and dreams.
I am a member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) www.bacp.co.uk and abide by their ethical framework to ensure you receive the best possible standard of care and also the Association for Coaching www.associationforcoaching.com. I am also accredited with Middlesex University.
In my North Yorkshire counselling practise I integrate concepts from Person Centred/Humanistic and Psychodynamic theory and my coaching style is based on Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC.)
For your peace of mind I attend supervision on a regular basis to support myself in my work as a Counsellor and Coach.
