Hi, I'm Lisa Waker

I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor as well as a Mental Health & Mindset Coach. I’m an accredited member with The National Counselling Society (NCS) a registrant of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work to their code of ethics.

I am client as well as 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 support 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.

With my extensive knowledge and experience in various areas of mental health, I am equipped to help my clients overcome the challenges they are facing in their life. I am fully committed to providing the highest quality of service to my clients.

My Story

As a Counsellor and Mindset coach, I am dedicated to helping individuals, groups, business owners, and executives achieve their goals by providing a safe space to offer guidance, support, and accountability.

I have been a counsellor since 2012, working initially with individuals in my Private Practice ‘The Therapy Room’ and then expanding into relationship therapy. 

It all started from quite a young age, I was that girl at school that everyone would confide in.  I have always been fascinated by the human story and I think people sense that.

I have a wealth of experience working with people from all backgrounds.  I’ve worked for our amazing military services, cleaned toilets, worked in a tattoo studio, waited on tables and ran my own driving school! All of this helping me to engage with the clients that I work with.

I have not only worked within Secondary School and University settings as a counsellor, but the charity sector to, including 2 Wish, The Jacob Abraham Foundation and LTMMH (Let’s Talk Men’s Mental Health) 

I have a proven track record of success, and my clients are happy to recommend me to others. Whether you’re looking to get to the depths of your emotional pain or looking to gain clarity about your situation, I can help.

How I Work

How WE work

01. We Work Together

We work together to understand your needs and wants from this process.  This is NOT a one size fits all approach.

02. We set goals

It’s important to have a goal to focus on regardless of why you are seeking support.

03. Working at your pace

We work at a pace that suits you, in your time frame.

It’s important that you know that you are supported every step of the way.  This may be an anxious time so please know that you will be treated with respect and humility.

What's it like to work with me?

Curious about what it would be like working with me? Check out these reviews from clients who have worked with me in the past.

"I just wanted to say thank you for helping me through the hardest part of my life these past few months. Meeting you, talking to you and looking ahead to our sessions helped me so much. You were the light in a very dark time for me"

"Thank you so much for helping me through my dark days. I nearly gave it all up as I saw no way forward until you showed me how to fight for my marriage, I can never thank you enough."

"There really are no words to describe how much you have helped me find me again. I am so thankful that I found you, you saw me at my life's lowest-eb. Your kind words and sometimes challenges to me really did save me and my family. So from the bottom of my heart thank you, in many ways I hope to never speak to you again but if we do I know I would be in the hands of the best person."

"Although I am going to face tough times ahead, I feel stronger and empowered thanks to you."

"I want to take this opportunity to thank you so very much for all the help and support you have provided me in such a short period of time. You have helped me to see life in a different way and provided me with strategies on how to tackle difficult situations. I will always remember you and will be sure to recommend your amazing services to others. I have finally found 'me' again.

"Thank you for everything, hands down you've been the best and let me look at things so much differently. I still believe if it wasn't for you I'd still be stuck thinking I was broken. You've done so much for me in such a short amount of time. It's let me realise where certain feelings and views come from, it's been a rollercoaster. You've been the best counsellor and have felt more like a friend."
