When my partner and I met Lisa earlier this year we were separated and in crisis. Over the last few months Lisa has supported us to reconnect through greater respect and communication. She has helped me to understand how my approach to relationship difficulties can really affect the outcome and she has helped my partner understand the need to be more responsible, committed and mindful of my/the family’s needs. I’ve learned things that I will keep in my mind forever, the most significant being that being “stuck in my old story” only debilitates me !
‘I went to see Lisa after finding out my husband had been unfaithful. I was at a point in my life where I didn’t know where to turn or how to cope.
Lisa’s skill as a counsellor allowed me to move past the hurt and look to my future and my individual counselling sessions quickly turned into couple’s sessions. During these sessions, she carefully and sensitively facilitated some very difficult discussions between myself and my husband, discussions which helped us to understand some of the reasons behind his infidelity and have ultimately given us a way to repair the damage.
For anyone finding themselves in my/our position, I can’t recommend Lisa enough. She has helped us to realise that infidelity doesn’t have to be the end and certainly doesn’t always mean that the marriage was not good or that there was no love. I feel like I have grown up through this process and had my eyes opened. I felt so alone initially but, throughout our sessions, Lisa was the professional ‘friend’ I/we needed, an ear to listen without judgment. We felt that Lisa really cared for our situation and that we weren’t just a job for her; she would think about how to help us in between sessions and would frequently come back with multiple suggestions on how to address our concerns/issues.
It has been over six months since our last session with Lisa and we are still using her tools to help repair our marriage and rebuild trust. I am thankful that through Lisa’s skill and our hard work, I am still in a loving marriage and that our children do not have to face life splitting their time between two homes. Lisa is exceptionally gifted at what she does.’
Our marriage was in serious trouble before we came to see Lisa. She brought peace, assurance and life to a withered rose. The issue of communication and trust affected us in different ways and it was taking a toll on our relationship. From our first session, I saw changes. Not just in my husband but in myself. Lisa taught us the importance of respecting our differences, and at no point was she ever judgmental. My husband was not interested in going to a counsellor but now he tells me that it is the best decision that we made for our marriage. Lisa is very warm, friendly and a very good listener. I will forever be grateful for her assistance. I believe with all my heart that Lisa has been blessed with the gift of counselling. God has used her to save our marriage and I can confidently recommend her!
Lisa is just about the most non-judgemental person I have ever met. With patience and an amazing ability to listen she saved me from walking out on a relationship which I had given up on, by helping me to understand that I do have the ability to change things. As a direct result of the help and guidance provided by Lisa I would like to think that I am now a better listener, I articulate better and I am more considerate in the way I express myself. My advice would be not to leave things until crisis point; consult sooner rather than later.
Lisa is an incredibly gifted counsellor. I have been to see her on several occasions in a couples counselling situation with my wife. Honestly at the time I felt that there was no way through with my relationship and I didn’t even think that I wanted a way through. However, over time and with non-judgmental conversation, my wife and I were able to begin to see what was important for ourselves and learnt to listen to each other in a safe and secure environment. Lisa never made suggestions of what we should do or feel but clarified points when she felt that one party had not really ‘heard’ what the other was saying. I never felt judged or that what I had said had shocked Lisa and was able to comfortably share my most intimate thoughts and feelings with both her and more importantly with my wife. I would whole-heartedly and unreservedly recommend Lisa to any individual or couple. She will help you process your feelings and find a way through regardless of the outcome.
Lisa has been immensely helpful in saving our marriage. When we went to her for help, we were on the brink of divorce. She helped us work through the damage done over 10 years and taught us practical skills on restoring safety and enhancing our communication. Lisa is very caring and encouraging in the way that she works with you. She doesn’t impose solutions but rather helps you reflect on what you want and what your motivations and fears are. While focusing on each of you as individuals, she then brings you to reflect on your goals as a couple and helps you to see where there is congruence. She uses practical exercises and strategies that help you uncover why you are together and that build common ground and rituals that protect your relationship. We are very indebted to her for all her help. With her skills, guidance and care we have been able to overcome huge obstacles and are a much stronger couple as a result.
I went to see Lisa when I was suffering with anxiety so badly that it was becoming unbearable to live with. Lisa instantly created a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere where I felt at ease talking about what I was going through. I found it particularly helpful that she gave me various tools and techniques to use outside of the sessions. Some of these worked for me and some didn’t, but Lisa never pushed me to continue with something that I wasn’t comfortable with. The work that she did with me really has changed my life and the relationships in my life for the better. Thank you!
Lisa has had a tremendous impact on my life. She was there for me during hugely tough and dark times in my marriage and my life in general. She has helped me to see things from other perspectives and equipped me with ‘tools’ with which to cope in everyday life.
Tapping’ has really surprised me with its effectiveness, completely changing and improving my way of coping with emotionally difficult and stressful situations and helping me to move on from things in my past. I have found a new freedom in life and am now able to enjoy situations, which previously I would have found very difficult to deal with.
I found the time meeting with Lisa very helpful in processing and better coping with an emotionally difficult situation that arose in my life. She taught me ‘tools’ to deal with periods of anxiety and stress; and become more robust in dealing with a difficult relationship at that time. Although the difficulties continue, I now feel more grounded in who I am and less affected by the behaviour of others. I am so thankful to Lisa for her support in growing through this situation, and being better prepared to deal with it in future.
I worked with Lisa over a period of several months on relationship challenges and issues of anxiety. I found her manner as a counsellor to be sensitive, intuitive and objective. Lisa guided me through several EFT sessions and effectively modeled the processes involved, enabling me to practise this approach independently. The time I spent with Lisa has had a significant impact on my personal development, helping me to become a more grounded and balanced individual.
I went to see Lisa when life became too complicated for me to work out what to do. Lisa didn’t just give me empathy, she gave me insight into myself. By understanding the root causes of my behaviour I could address it. I like the person I am becoming and I am sure that I would not have figured it out on my own. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
