Lisa understands that everyone – no matter how successful or “together” they outwardly appear – may be grappling with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, stress or moments of simply feeling overwhelmed. During a session, you can expect a deep exploration of your concerns and the development of a tailored treatment plan that allows you to feel safe and comfortable.
Some potential areas of exploration include how to manage difficult emotions, challenge harmful thoughts or understand how experiences in your past may be contributing to destructive behavioural patterns at work, school or in your personal relationships.
For couples, sessions with Lisa will focus on helping both partners truly see and understand their mate’s needs. Even if one, or both of you, are feeling hopeless about your relationship, couples counselling can help you reconnect and, if necessary, renegotiate the terms of your union. Many couples have successfully weathered crises like infidelity or addiction and emerged with an updated, “2.0” version of their relationship that better holds both individuals.
Lisa holds a Master of Counselling degree from Monash University and is a trained practitioner of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Emotion Efficacy Therapy (EET). She has completed Level 2 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and is certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as an Associate Coach.
Lisa is originally from Canada and has lived in Singapore since 1998. Before entering the counselling profession, she spent almost 30 years working as a broadcast journalist. In addition to counselling, Lisa is a media trainer and coach to executives at some of the world’s largest companies.
