The Happy Steps workshops for stepfamilies are a great way to learn more about stepfamily dynamics and meet others in the same position. Courses were suspended due to Covid, however I took the plunge and used it as an opportunity to develop a version that allows you to join via video from wherever you are in the country. I began running these last year (2022) and they've gone from strength to strength. Keep a lookout for more details on the website or via instagram @happysteps_drlisa.
If you're finding things difficult at the moment why not talk to an expert? Appointments are available via video call (Teams, zoom, FaceTime etc). Each call is 55mins long and costs £120. There is no pressure to book multiple sessions - you can just book as and when you want to. To book an appointment or for more info contact email@example.com
In 2019 I started working with October Films in the development of a documentary with Rio and Kate Ferdinand. The programme was focused on their journey to becoming a stepfamily and I was thrilled to be asked to be involved with the project. Rio and Kate are great role models for stepfamilies and I'm confident the documentary will help so many couples who are struggling to cope with the challenges of stepfamily life.
The documentary was first shown on BBC1 Monday 10th Feb 2020.
I am delighted to announce that I have been working with the BBC Ideas team to create a short video to help stepfamilies. This has been a really exciting project and I hope it will provide help to many stepfamilies. The video aims to give advise to couples who are creating and integrating their families. You can view this by going to the BBC website and searching for ideas and then stepfamilies.
