About me and my therapy practice

Firstly thank you for your time in considering if I am a therapist with whom you feel that you may be able to connect with.

My name is Lisa from Hope and Empathy Counselling.

I am a qualified counsellor based in Plympton, Plymouth, Devon. I work from a warm, comfortable and private space within my home.

Before becoming a counsellor I worked for many years in the social care field, working for the local authority and within GP Practices. I have extensive experience of working with people from diverse backgrounds, disabilities and with various challenges.

My passion has always been working with people, with a person led approach and with care and compassion at the heart of all that I do. 

My own lived experience led me into the counselling profession and I believe that this has enhanced my practice, it allows connection, empathy and gives strength to the therapeutic relationship.

I offer...

A Space for you to feel comfortable, to be safe to share what you need and there be no judgement.

A Space for you where I can show you compassion and empathy, to enable you and I to work together and unravel things that perhaps you have been unable to before.

A Space for you to explore your own unique hopes for therapy. To look at your goals and aspirations to enable you to move forward.

A Space for you, to be you. Life is busy and often complex so I will support you to focus on you and what is needed in the time that we spend together.

A space for you to receive Hope and Empathy.

Practice description

The approach that I practise in is Integrative, meaning I use different modalities dependent on the presenting need. This includes Person Centred concepts to establish and maintain the therapeutic relationship, Gestalt to work with the body and emotion and to address any unfinished business. CBT to look at the mind and work with core beliefs and Transpersonal to aid connection to the soul giving a sense of purpose to the client.

Counselling isn't about giving you solutions or advice, but about empowering you to make your own changes and I believe that the relationship that we can build together will enable that process.

My first session

I offer a free initial 30 minute appointment to see if you feel that I may be the right counsellor for you. 

Sessions thereafter last 60 minutes, usually take place weekly and cost £45 per session.

Sessions can be held face to face as well as online and by telephone. I am looking at offering Walk and Talk therapy in the future.
