I had the privilege to work with Lisa as my 1:1 Therapist for 3 years throughout my MA.
Whilst I experienced my life falling apart in so many ways, including a total transformation in my own physiology and psychology Lisa was a rock. Navigating the terrain of academia and personal crisis I can hand on heart say I wouldn’t have been able to come through the other side quite so intact without the guidance, therapeutic holding and meeting of Lisa.
Lisa is a therapist of not only wisdom, skill, experience and emotional intelligence She is a therapist of heart. My first meeting with Lisa I ‘knew’ she was the ‘right therapist’ to undertake a deep personal journey with. At all times I felt, heard, seen, witnessed, encouraged and gently challenged. These for me are rare, yes even within a therapeutic relationship.
Lisa is a therapist of upmost integrity in her practice, I feel honoured to have taken the journey I did with her.If you want to move through personal ‘stories’ with someone who will meet you in every moment then I cannot recommend Lisa highly enough. Indeed, when people ask me the ‘best bit of my Dramatherapy MA’ without missing a beat I say ‘MY THERAPY SESSIONS!’
“You have this amazing natural ability to ‘hold’ the therapy and make me feel safe. You
are so gentle, yet you challenged me to work with my inner negative perceptions in a
concrete and productive way, thank you so much…”
“I was able to rehearse the positive and empowering changes in the safety of the sessions before outing them into practice in my life” Individual
“At first I thought dramatherapy would be too challenging for me, I could not believe how gentle the process was, it helped me to access therapy where I was able to work with images and metaphors to understand and work through my difficulties.” Group Member
“Dramatherapy has offered an invaluable amount of support to my daughter during a tumultuous time, she has had a supportive space to explore her feelings creatively and as a child. As a family struggling with the impact of substance misuse this therapy has been a lifeline. Thanks for everything Lisa.” Mother
