Lisa’s therapy approach is warm but also straightforward. She appreciates the differences between people and therefore believes that personalised care is important in therapy. Her initial aim is always to understand the unique experiences of her clients before they progress to a course of evidence-based therapy.


Lisa is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a Practitioner Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). She holds the position of joint lead for a Special Interest Group (SIG) for psychologists working in aesthetic surgery. In her current role at Helloself she works as a Clinical Director but also as a Clinical Psychologist seeing members. She has links with the University of Surrey as a marker and also is a registered clinical supervisor on the BPS RAPPS list. After completing her professional doctorate in 2010 with the University of Surrey, She has worked in a range of different services, both in the NHS and the private sector. She worked at several NHS hospitals including the Royal Brompton Hospital before moving into leadership roles within the private sector. For over ten years she has been providing private talking therapy to adults for a range of psychological difficulties. Her specialist expertise includes supporting people with weight management psychology, including those who live with obesity, in addition to those with acute, chronic or life-limiting physical health conditions. She also has expertise in working with people who have appearance concerns, and has experience of psychological assessments with people seeking aesthetic surgery. The main therapeutic models which Lisa uses in her work are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Having completed training in schema therapy, she also uses a schema-informed approach when needed to support people in understanding themselves. She particularly enjoys understanding the links between the body and mind.
