Personal Counselling & Psychotherapy

In today’s society our lives are busier and more demanding than ever.

There are times when we can experience different forms of distress and usually our friends and family can help. There are however times when our problems require more support in order to cope, understand and work with them. This is when professional counselling can help.

Counselling offers a private space for you to openly discuss aspects of your life in a supportive and confidential setting. The opportunity arises for you to focus on your current life circumstances and gain a better understanding or different perspective on what has been confusing, upsetting or stressful in your life.

Our first session involves an initial assessment and exploring what has brought you to counselling. This gives me a chance to understand the changes you are seeking, and you a chance to sense if I am the best therapist for you. Our initial session also creates the opportunity for you to receive some professional feedback and support.

Counselling in general is a short-term approach with sessions scheduled weekly or fortnightly to address current issues and specifically identified goals. Psychotherapy is a more in depth approach which explores deeper and more complex issues with sessions usually scheduled on a regular basis and is an open ended process.

Lisa’s approach is client-centred, psychodynamic, gestalt and family constellation based. 

What counselling can help you with:

• Emotional crises – a relationship ending, divorce, job loss, a traumatic event, death of a loved one.
• Relationships – challenges with a marriage, partner, work colleagues, family or friends.
• General moods – stress, dissatisfaction with life, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, anger, depression, low self-esteem, emptiness or loneliness.
• The past – childhood trauma, neglect, loss, abandonment.
• Unhealthy coping – losing interest in relationships and social activities, becoming withdrawn, drinking too much or drug use, emotional eating.
• Personal development and growth – to gain more from life, deepen understanding of yourself, explore and grow, develop better self- esteem and confidence.

 

The benefits of the counselling process can be:

• A greater trust and confidence in yourself and your abilities
• A deeper capacity to connect to your feelings
• A greater sense of feeling authentic, alive and engaged in your life
• A strengthened ability to relate to others and create more satisfying relationships
• New tools and skills for living and coping with challenging times

TESTIMONIALS

Thank you Lisa for our appointment last week, I am still blown away by what you told me in the session and how close it was to what I had been mulling over and over in my head. It actually managed to resolve a few issues for me. I truly came away feeling like I had a plan and a direction which is wonderful. I also love the meditation you did with me. It was just wonderful and obviously what I needed.

HC, Accountant

Having a busy lifestyle can get in the road of listening to yourself and understanding how you really feel about a situation. The time I have spent with Lisa has made me aware of what was actually is going on for me and that I had other choices for how to handle it. The space was really comfortable and I felt completely supported by Lisa. I would highly recommend to anyone needing a deeper understanding of something important to them to try spending time with her.

CJ, Marketing Manager
