Lisa has been a volunteer counsellor at Teamwork for 10 years.

“I started volunteering at Teamwork while I was training to be a counsellor. It was where I completed my placement and, once I qualified, I asked if I could stay on,” said Lisa.

“There is an incredibly supportive warmth at Teamwork, which enables me to be the volunteer counsellor I want to be. I love the real person-focused approach – the atmosphere is so welcoming, and everyone is valued, regardless of the challenges they may be facing.”

Lisa counsels two clients a week. She added:

“It is an honour to be part of someone's counselling journey and travel with them as they explore concerns. Being a volunteer counsellor is an extremely rewarding experience, and being part of the Teamwork family is an important part of my life.”
