Hello, my name's Lis and I'm an integrative therapist / counsellor.

I have trained in a range of therapeutic approaches, and develop a way of working with you that is most appropriate to your individual needs and experiences.

As a therapist, I offer:

- a genuine desire to help, and to learn about you and the difficulties you are facing.
- a therapeutic alliance based on acceptance and respect.
- the ability to listen carefully and patiently, and to respond empathically and with sensitivity, in order to support you in managing or dealing with the difficulties in your life.
- a willingness to adapt my approach to suit your uniqueness as a person with your own distinctive needs.
