I am able to provide coaching to individuals or couples in stepfamilies to discuss their specific family problems and identify possible solutions. Each session will normally last for 50 mins and will be tailored to your specific needs. Coaching can either take place via video messaging or over the telephone, whichever is more convenient and appropriate. Face to face sessions are sometimes also possible.
If you're finding things difficult or can't work out what to do next why not get in touch and set up an introductory session - there really is no ongoing commitment, you decide how much support you need from me. I have appointments available on weekdays, either during the daytime or early evening. A 50 minute appointment costs £120 (incl VAT).

I'm delighted to report that my clients leave the sessions feeling more in control and able to cope with the challenges of stepparenting. Here are some of their comments.....
'I just wanted to write to say thank you for the Skype session we had with you a couple of months ago now. Since then we have managed to change the days with my stepdaughter on a trial basis, but it seems to be going well for everyone. I have so much more space in my head it's wonderful! I can't believe we suffered the old arrangement for so long. I'm also spending more time with my stepdaughter, which is great - I used to before I was pregnant and I think doing so again has made a big difference to our step mum and daughter relationship. And there is no resentment on my part. My partner and I have stopped fighting. So yes, it was a life changing hour!'
'Our sessions with Lisa have offered my partner and me, an opportunity to explore our feelings for our stepchildren anew and facilitate handling more productively the severe challenges we face in our new home together in relation to the children we have been able to listen to each others point of view, calmly and in a productive/focused environment, analyse painful/emotional topics from a new perspective and finally pursue alternative approaches/solutions to long-standing problems'.
'I went to see Lisa when I couldn't find the support or information anywhere else that applied to my situation and I felt I needed. Lisa has offered me invaluable, friendly support and has given me achievable coping strategies to deal with what felt, at times, like an unchangeable situation. Things looked much brighter immediately after seeing her just for the fist time and she has made me feel much calmer and happier than I have done for ages'.
Please ensure you have agreed a date and time with Lisa before paying for the session.
