Hi, my name is Lisa Waker, I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor as well as a Clinical Hypnotherapist; I’m an accredited member with The National Counselling Society (NCS) a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and an accredited member with The National Hypnotherapy Society and I work to their code of ethics.
I am client as well as being goal focused, this means that we work together to find a solution to your problem that works for you, I do not offer a one size fits all type therapy, I focus on you as a client and we work towards an end goal so that you can decide on what you want to achieve from your therapy and from each session.
I hold an Advanced Professional Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Counselling & Psychotherapy as well as a Diploma in Hypnotherapy.
I have worked in Private Practice for over 4 years and have also worked with a local Breast Cancer Charity.
I work with many issues ranging from;
Bereavement & Grief
Emotional eating disorders
Confidence & self esteem
I offer a relaxed and discreet therapy setting to help you feel more comfortable while discussing issues that are currently affecting you. It is important that you feel at ease and that each session works at a pace that you are happy with, we do not explore any issues or situations that you are not comfortable in addressing, all information is kept strictly private and confidential.
Having a safe environment to offload past and present issues is extremely important and I continue my training so that I can provide that safety and techniques to help you, I attend regular counselling supervision to oversee my work and have professional liability insurance to cover our working together.
