Dr Lisa Debrou

(Clinical Director)

HCPC registered Contact


I am chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My qualifications are:

  • Bachelors degree in Psychology, University of the West of England
  • Masters degree in Health Psychology, University of the West of England
  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, University of Surrey

I work with adults and some older adolescents. I have worked with a variety of issues including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, anxiety, depression, panic, PTSD, adjustment issues (to health conditions), relationship problems, low self-esteem, burnout and work-related stress.

The main therapy models I use in my work are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My areas of special interest are with people who are living with chronic health conditions or life-limiting illnesses, medically-related phobias and general adult mental health. I have experience of working both in the NHS and the private sector (both in the UK and abroad).

My approach when working with someone is always to try first to understand their story. I genuinely enjoy working with people to try and find a way through their difficulties. Being ‘stuck’ in distress can often feel overwhelming and it is hard to know how to find a way out. I see my role as a psychologist in therapy as being a guide to help people become ‘unstuck’ so quality of life can improve. I will always tailor what I am doing to the person in front of me.
