Lisa is an accredited Play Therapist working with children who experience social and emotional difficulties. As part of her work, Lisa supports families including those in foster and adoptive care and enjoys working alongside external
Agencies such as social services, mental health organisations and other such support groups.
Lisa has worked as a Nanny which saw her travel across the world before spending time as a nursery nurse.
She volunteered for SOVA – working with teenage women on probation- helping them to rejoin society with a developed and more positive attitude.
Lisa graduated from Canterbury Christchurch University in 2014 and-having volunteered for two years across several schools in West and North Yorkshire- she decided to set up her own business in Therapeutic Services straight away.
PrIor to this, Lisa volunteered for Childline where she enjoyed the role of phone-line counsellor on the late night shift. Lisa learnt many skills throughout this time and realised her true passion for supporting families- even from this remote point of view.
In her spare time Lisa enjoys keeping fit and active and was once a taekwondo instructor working alongside young people, using physical activity to help manage emotions and alleviate negativity.
She is a keen cyclist and has ran several events raising money for various charities over the years.
( Lisa used to work as a celebrity lookalike whereupon she met some amazing celebrities on the red carpet).
Lisa was aware of the situation in Rochdale and was keen to find out more about how she could use her skills to help and support those affected. She is looking forward to working with the Foundation and already feels part of a team with a shared vision of how to make the best positive changes to the existing system.
