Psychotherapy and Counselling
Couples and Relationship Therapy
Philosophy and Style of Working:
- If you are struggling with a broken connection, or you have been through an experience that has tested the foundations of your relationship, then Lisa will listen to your pain without judgment. She will help you understand the moves that have lead to your relationship distress in order to give you choices you may have lost sight of. Together, you will aim for safety again and once it has been restored, Lisa will work with you to create a new vision and inspire the energy for it.
- If you are an individual who experiences the same relationship distress with different people, then Lisa can help you see what the common thread may be and how you can make changes. Or perhaps you feel desperate for help but your partner is not willing to seek help with you.
- If there is indecision about the way ahead, then Lisa can help you gain clarity. This is not relationship therapy but rather an honest look at each one’s contribution to the difficulties to help you decide whether to separate or begin work on the relationship. For this work, she will mostly see you separately.
- For people who want to improve their relationship but don’t know how to make that happen, Lisa offers personalised relationship workshops. This work is about potential rather than problems. The focus is on developing the essential elements of a conscious intimate relationship.

Training and Experience:
Whilst undergoing her training, and for a further 8 years, Lisa was part of a team with other counsellors and two Clinical Psychologists, in a challenging and busy cross cultural practice. For the past two years she has been in private practice in Wiltshire working mostly with couples but also with individuals with relationship difficulties. Lisa is constantly inspired by the potential in relationships and by the impact of them on our general health and welfare and she has specialised in this area since finishing her initial training. She recognises the vitality and sense of wellbeing that a good relationship imparts to all areas of our lives. She is therefore always learning, always looking for new and better ways to help people connect well.
