Hi, I’m Lisa and I am one of the co-founders. I run the Business, Finance and Administration side of Integrity 
 
Welcome, I hope you enjoy looking around our website and maybe find something that enhances your life in some way 
 
I want to say a little about me, some background and key steps that lead me to co-owning Integrity with these three amazing ladies
 
From the young age of around fourteen I began feeling low and anxious, often afraid to go out into the world, covering up how I felt, and just having to get on with what I needed to do. These feelings increased through my twenties, feeling more and more anxious going to work, out with friends and still not letting anyone know how I felt.  Although I had great, loving support from family, at the age of 31, when my son was around one year’s old, I knew something needed to change. It was time to reach out for some help. That lead me to take the steps that began the road I am on now…
 
In 2000 I was encouraged by a very supportive Councillor to take a course then called Self Esteem Enhancement (SEE), now called The Power of Self Esteem, which helped me understand myself, others and most importantly my own Mind. I learnt so much about myself, how we tick, and the world around me. I wanted to learn more and help others the way I had been helped so I began training to become a Self Esteem Mentor to teach SEE. I love this course, for me it’s all about education, understanding and freeing ourselves from limiting beliefs that hold us back, getting to know our value, who we truly are and bringing that version of ourselves to the world. Over the next few years I took several other courses in the More to Life Programme, one of which is The Power of Purpose, where I met Suzette, Nicky and Shelly. 
From that moment on we formed a solid support network, and have been on and taught many courses together
 
In 2012 I discovered EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping), a combination of Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. EFT became my passion, it is a simple yet powerful technique, that supports so many people in many different areas in their lives. I qualified in 2014 as an Accredited, Certified EFT Practitioner. My vision is for EFT to be universally well-known and available to everyone.
 
During that time, I was involved in a friendly community group called Simply Being Happy based around health and wellbeing. It was a lovely place where everyone was welcome to drop in and learn together with others. Simply Being Happy has helped me grow, in knowledge and in confidence.
 
In 2016, thanks to starting up Integrity,  I have followed another path. I began learning all about Administration, Design etc and found that I really enjoy the organisational side of business, which I have now have made my career. I am currently studying Accounting, which I love !
 
I have gained so much from the amazing people I have met, the training and courses I have been on.
 
The main thing that has changed in my life is understanding Thinking and knowing that I create my own life … From the Inside – Out 
 
I am proud of what we offer here at Integrity, supporting people to support themselves,
enabling as many people as we can reach to know their true value and create the lives they want.
