Hello, welcome to my website

My name is Lisa Bruton and I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 10 years experience. I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and couples in the centre of Reading. Alongside my private practice I work for a public sector organisation and teach psychotherapy in a college. I also run Mindfulness courses and incorporate Mindfulness approaches in my one-to-one work. Previous experience includes working for the NHS,  the Department of Health, in Higher Education. I also ran Mindfulness Courses at the Maudsley Hospital and the Mindful Project in London.

In addition to this I have specialist training in Trauma, and include in this category less visible traumas such as breakups, bereavements, loss of employment and matters relating to fertility and identity. I am UKCP accredited and hold a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. I have experience helping individuals with a range of issues, including anxiety and depression, addiction, relationship problems, bereavement and loss, work troubles and self esteem. I am a firm believer in therapy and its’ potential to make a difference in peoples’ lives, and this means I bring an enthusiasm and conviction into my work. I currently have daytime and evening availability, please contact me if you would like an initial discussion.
