In this episode I have the great pleasure of speaking with a great friend and trailblazer, Dr Lisa de Rijk. Lisa is a Research Fellow at Kings College, London, Clinical Training Director at the Research and Recognition project. Owner of Awaken Consulting, a change management consultancy, and Awaken School, a psychotherapy service and UKCP therapy training school and lives the good life on Snowdon. Lisa shares how she has overcome significant life challenges, what she has learned about herself through her work and studies in psychotherapy and how that has positively influenced her work.
We talk about identity loss, awareness and discovery and the impact this has on personal development and how this leaks into every aspect of life. We talk about divorce and the effect this has and how we have to block out the emotional pain in order to get through it and the fall out that can happen on the other end of it.
To get in touch with Lisa, she has kindly agreed to share her Linkedin profile, her website and the website for the Research and Recognition Project for information on RTM training and to search for registered RTM therapists.

This was an amazing conversation and one I will need to watch many more times because it is jam packed with valuable insights and experience from a lady that I have the utmost respect for personally and professionally.
Thank you Lisa x
