Dr Lisa Brosh

My name is  Lisa Brosh and I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years experience of working within a variety of NHS, education and charities settings. I am dedicated and passionate about the support I offer. From our first meeting I aim to foster a supportive compassionate space being guided by you as to what you would like to focus upon or work towards. 

Through my Doctorate studies and subsequent training I have developed skills in the use of a range of assessment tools and therapeutic models for use with young children through to older adults with emotional and physical health conditions. I work integratively drawing from a range of evidence based models depending on the needs and fit with each person / family.  The main therapeutic models I use are Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Systemic Therapies and Behavioural Frameworks. 
I have experience of working within mental health (Child and Adult) and physical health (Paediatrics and adult) settings. Through my career I have worked with a range of mental health and well being concerns including: low mood, depression, intrusive thoughts, anxiety, OCD, self-harm, anger, behavioural issues and low self esteem. 

I have many years experience of supporting individuals / families following diagnoses of neurodevelopmental or physical health diagnoses. For many such diagnoses are unexpected or not the anticipated life journey and space to think about meaning and reconnection can be helpful. In addition to supporting wider family or connected systems (such as school) to understand and consider helpful strategies and how they can be implemented across environments.

Having worked extensively within child, learning disability and Autism services I am confident in adapting information and working creatively to enhance accessibility and engagement. I have experience of working with children with Autism and / or learning difficulties presenting with a variety of behaviours that challenge supporting the child, family and network to build understanding, communication and supportive strategies. 

I offer support with parenting and parental well being drawing from ACT to focus upon enhancing emotional well being and building connection to who you want to be in the context of parenting, and parenting a child with complex needs. 

Therapy could also be a space to make meaning of life experiences, transitions and life choices within a safe non judgemental environment. 
In addition to offering therapy I have extensive experience of working with Multi-Disciplinary Teams and offering consultation and training to social care, schools, voluntary organisations and specialist NHS services. In addition to offering supervision to a range of different health, education and social care professionals.
