About Psychotherapy and Couple Counselling
Lisa has been working for over ten years with couples and individuals who are experiencing relationship difficulties including communication and dealing with conflict, infidelity, stress and stressful lifestyles that are affecting their relationship, sexual intimacy, domestic violence, parenting and growing apart.
Some relationships will come to an end and this may be because, for example, the couple have grown apart or that there has been an infidelity, etc and they need help to deal with the emotional and practical aspects of this decision. Separation is life changing and is usually accompanied by upsetting feelings (either leading up to the separation or afterwards). Although natural, these feelings can be very unsettling regardless of whether you were the one to leave or the one who was left behind.
She also has considerable experience working with second relationships and step families, helping clients to understand better the complexities of this unique family dynamic.
Lisa also works with clients who are struggling with stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, grief and loss as well as dealing with the impact of surviving child sexual abuse.
She is client-focused and works collaboratively with clients using an integrative approach. Her warm empathic style provides a supportive environment so that clients can explore and uncover blocks that may be affecting their overall happiness and help them find better ways to deal with their problems.
Lisa trained as a Couple Counsellor with the Irish Institute for Couple Counselling. She also completed her Counselling & Psychotherapy training with PCI College and is an accredited member of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).
