Hello, I’m Lisa Eaton an Experienced, Qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor and my Private Practice is based in the Ocean Room at Broadstone Counselling.

I'm Lisa, a fully Qualified, Professional and Experienced Counsellor, Psychotherapist (CBT) and Supervisor. I have experience of working with Adults of all ages and Young People from 11 to 18 years on a one to one basis with a wide range of issues and symptoms related to mental health.

My aim in our counselling is to develop a therapeutic relationship, by gaining a non-judgemental perspective and insight of what life is really like for you.  I will offer you the opportunity to discuss your situation/problems with me in our session, in a warm, confidential, non-judgemental and neutral environment and I will listen to you in a way that may not have happened before.  Whilst exploring the root causes of painful and negative feelings and thoughts we will work together to help deal with difficulties which may enable you to move on from feeling stuck!

How I Work

I am a Person- Centred / Integrative Counsellor which means I can be flexible in how I work depending on your needs.  As a compassionate and engaging Person- Centred Counsellor, I believe that you have the ability to change as you learn more about yourself to rediscover your inner resources, enabling you to find your best way forward.  We can look at using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which looks at ways to change your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.  Introducing, using and practising Mindfulness with clients has helped them to reduce stress and anxiety.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP Registration number 305401), and a member of the BACP Children and Young People Division which means I follow their Code of Ethical and Professional Conduct.

My Fees

I know that one of the issues that can put you off looking for counselling is the cost, with this in mind I try to ensure my fees match your income.

Current fees are between £35 to £45 per session (50 minutes) - Couples Counselling £60 per session (50 minutes)

I have two concession places available for people on low income or struggling to afford counselling. This can be discussed during the consultation.

I charge a discounted rate of £30 for all Trainee Counsellors doing their 40 hours of personal therapy.

Free...The first session is an initial consultation where we will meet, take down some details and decide if working together is what's best for you.  There will be no charge for this initial session (30/40 minutes).

Group supervision sessions available, please feel free to get in touch for more information, details below.
