Lisa Hayter


I am a qualified Counsellor and an Accredited Member of the BACP*

and a qualified  Clinical Counselling Supervisor, including Online and Telephone Work.

I have been working in therapeutic counselling settings for many years. At present, I work in Private Practice from Farringdon and New Cross Gate.  I also work on-line or on the phone. My work is GSRD informed (Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversity).

My aim is to provide a supportive, non-judgemental, confidential and safe environment for you to share your story and be heard. I see my counselling role as hopefully guiding you towards your own answers and uncovering your own truths.

After starting my working life as an actor, I began my counselling journey  30 years ago as a Samaritan volunteer and spent 10 years working as a Counselling Supervisor at ChildLine. I managed METRO charity's LGBTQ+ Counselling service for 11-25 year olds as well as supporting the volunteer counsellors and clients across the Over 25 service. I am a member of the Gendered Intelligence Network for Therapists and Counsellors. I am also a qualified teacher.


Some of the issues I have worked with have included:-

  • Depression

  • Abuse

  • Anxiety

  • Relationship Difficulties

  • Gender Identity

  • Sexual Orientation

  • Relationship Anarchy

  • Polyamory

  • Bereavement

  • Trauma

  • Challenging decisions

  • Loss, grief and life changes

  • Hearing voices


My central London practice is a convenient 5 minute walk from Farringdon. My South East London location is a 10 minute walk from New Cross Gate Station.
