About me and my therapy practice
Who am I?
Welcome, I'm Lisette. I am an experienced registered counsellor. I bring myself to my practice which means I work with integrity, honesty and respect. I aim to provide you with a safe and open environment, filled with support, compassion and understanding so that you are given freedom to explore whatever you feel is needed.
I have over 15 years of experience working in the social care sector, offering specialist support and interventions to both adults, children and young people. I have worked specifically in the area of trauma and recovery. This means that I have particular understanding and experience of working with anxiety, depression, stress, low self esteem and loss.
I have worked for 14 years with a specialist organisation supporting the recovery of individuals from experiences of exploitation. This work has given me a deep understanding of power and control and emotional, physical and sexual abuse.
Over the course of my professional career I have engaged in high levels of training which has developed my practice in areas such as attachment, relational conflict, self development and managing complex emotions.
Whatever brings you here, whether you might be looking for support around a specific issue, or struggling with an experience in the past or present. Perhaps you’re wanting to make a change and feel like things are stuck and you are constantly having the same negative results.
You might not even be able to put your finger on it, perhaps everything feels wrong or you can't shake the sadness or disconnection! Counselling is an opportunity for you to reconnect with yourself, to develop a greater awareness of your thoughts and feelings, make sense of things, and most importantly feel empowered to live a life of your own design.
What can I Offer?
I am an integrative counsellor. This means I have been trained in a range of counselling techniques and approaches, allowing me to shape my practice around each clients individual needs.
I believe in working collaboratively, so together we choose the starting point and the most effective therapies, adapting and changing according to your needs within the counselling process.
Most importantly I will offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in order for us establish a partnership built on trust and authenticity.
My first session
Central to any 1-1 practice is the collaboration of the two involved, It is therefore very important that you feel comfortable with the counsellor you choose.
The initial session is a mix of getting to know each other and establishing an agreement of how we will work together. There are some core forms that all professional counsellors must cover with clients such as confidentiality and processing of personal information.
I will talk through the way I work and gather from you an understanding of your needs. Nothing is set in stone and we will constantly review adapt and change according to you.
Please note, there is no obligation following the initial session to continue with counselling.
