    About Therapist

    Lisa understands the work of therapy can feel challenging at times, and she provides compassionate guidance, gentle encouragement, and unconditional positive regard every step of the way. Her commitment is to hold a warm, safe, and judgement-free space for your personal journey of self-discovery and healing. The core of her therapeutic approach is the belief that every person has an innate capacity for growth, healing, and positive change. 

    She is committed to providing an inclusive, accessible, and culturally-sensitive counselling experience for all individuals. 

    Lisa specialises in helping clients heal from trauma, overcome personal challenges, and cultivate fulfilling relationships and lives. She has 15+ years experience working in the mental health field, including 12 years as an emergency psychiatric nurse, where she gained invaluable experience supporting people through mental health crises, trauma, and injury. This inspired her to help clients who have endured traumatic histories, process their experiences and develop resilience.

    Lisa has extensive experience working with clients who have learning challenges or neurodiversity. She understands the toll it can take on self-esteem and confidence, and enjoys supporting these clients in building self-compassion and healthy coping strategies.

    To deliver the highest quality care, Lisa continually expands her skills through workshops, conferences, and advanced training. Her approach is also informed by authentic, lived experiences, allowing her to tailor her approach to suit each client’s needs, creating genuine connection and empowering clients to find their own healing path. 

    Lisa also has a background in clinical hypnotherapy which enables her to offer alternative ways to overcome the core beliefs formed in childhood.

    While her work is one of her greatest passions, she also enjoys spending quality time with loved ones, and nurturing her creative side through various hobbies and artistic outlets. At her core, she values authenticity, lifelong learning, giving back to others, and taking time to nurture personal well-being.

    What are three strengths you have as a Psychologist/Counsellor?
    1. Empathy
    2. Creating safe space
    3. Non judgemental
    What is the most satisfying and fulfilling part of the work you do?

    The most fulfilling part of my work is assisting clients to flourish by providing the tools and strategies to overcome their past and achieve the relationships they desire. No matter your circumstances, I would be honored to support you on your path of healing and self-discovery.

    The journey of reaching your full potential can be difficult, but you don’t have to walk it alone.

    What’s an example of a couple you have helped the most?

    A young couple who had both experienced family trauma as children, and were repeating the same conflict patterns as their parents. They loved each other dearly, but weren’t able to handle their difference of opinion without feeling defensive and reactive.

    Through our collaborative therapeutic relationship, they gained invaluable self-awareness and developed practical strategies to nurture their emotional well-being. Within six months, they had put the tools and strategies into action and developed a bigger, better and stronger loving relationship.
