Lisa Thomson

Lisa has had a long career in a variety of mental health settings within the NHS. She originally trained as a mental health nurse and subsequently worked in inpatient and community settings with adults, children, young people and their families.

  • Depression

  • Eating disorders

  • Self-harm

  • OCD

  • Phobias

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder


Lisa’s training is mainly aimed at professionals but she also delivers training to parents and to children and young people.

“The training from Lisa enabled me to feel more confident about what to say, when to say it and to have a clear and positive endpoint in mind. More importantly, I felt I was listening carefully to what the student was sharing and could respond in a more supportive way. A big thank you to Lisa for making this part of the job a little less daunting!”

“A really good, useful meeting that has already helped us manage depressed/anxious adolescents with some top practical tips. Altogether a really helpful hour.”
