She is registered with Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Chartered with the British Psychological Society. After completing a BSc in Psychology, she undertook a MSc in Mental Health Studies at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neuroscience, King’s College London. Her research, subsequently published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, explored and emphasised the role of patient choice and engagement in care. Lisa then completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, where she developed an extensive amount of experience in working with children, young people and families. Through her collaborative, person- centred and holistic way of working, she has developed expertise in understanding and supporting children with anxiety, low mood, low self -esteem, OCD, anger, psychosis, PTSD, attachment difficulties, self-harm, and suicidal ideation. Lisa is committed to helping children through applying a range of evidence-based psychological therapies and theories, but with a particular focus on specialising in attachment informed approaches, such as Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Compassionate Focused Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She retains interests in teaching and research, including supervising local Clinical Psychology trainees, and continues academic work with her collaborators at King’s College. In her spare time, when she can find any, Lisa enjoys swimming, and she is the mum to two wonderful children who keep her very busy.
