Hello, welcome to my webpage. My name is Lisa and I run Hopfield Counselling. I am an Integratively trained counsellor / psychotherapist which means that I work in a way that is individual to each client, not in a prescriptive, pre-meditated way. I have been trained to utilise many different skills and approaches to meet an individuals needs.
I am able to offer both short and long term counselling for adults, adolescents and children working from a light and airy garden room. My practice offers a safe space to explore what’s troubling your life as many of us at some stage can feel confused, isolated, anxious, stressed or alone.
I am also trained to work with couples, investigating what is happening within relationships, establish what the difficulties may be and providing both people in the relationship with the chance to communicate in a non-judgemental and safe environememt.
Having someone impartial to really listen and walk in your world with you can give you the space and time to get some perspective and understanding. It can provide you with the time to investigate what is troubling your life at the moment and assist you to look for new ways to manage those difficulties. As counselling is not a directive process we work together to find new ways of coping and make life changes.
“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.”
― Shannon L. Alder
As well as working in private practice I have experience of working in the charitable sector as a Counsellor for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice. Within my role for the hospice I work with both life limited patients as well as families of the bereaved and currently run Footsteps, a bereavement group for children aged 5 to 12 years. In addition to my work with the Hospice I also work for The Matthew Hackney Foundation providing a counselling service to local schools.
My practice is based in Byfleet with free parking and is easily accessible from Woking, Weybridge, Walton, St George’s Hill, New Haw, West Byfleet and within a 15 minute walk of Byfleet and New Haw railway station.
I am able to offer discounted rates for Counselling students.
