Meet the Founder

Lisa Jeremy

Founder & Director

Tel: 07901 913625

After a career in Marketing and Events and then training to be a Systemic Counsellor (Level 5) with RELATE, Lisa continued to keep busy whilst managing home life with her husband, twins and three stepchildren.

She worked in and around Saffron Walden, taking on a number of part time roles for child-focused charities dealing with bullying, isolation and supporting families with young children.  She was also the Safeguarding Director for a Multi Academy Trust for a number of years.  All these roles held one core belief at heart…that each individual child, adult, or family had the right to feel, and live a safe, happy and secure life whilst understanding and achieving resilience and mental stability whilst maximising their individual capabilities.

Having trained in child resilience (with YoungMinds), Mindfulness Based Stress Relief methodology and practice (MBSR) and Safeguarding Level 3 recently, Lisa is now driven to develop her dream of managing an organisation that offers a ‘one stop shop’ of affordable and accessible, therapeutic services to the community of Uttlesford.  “Not one shoe fits all” and by being able to offer a range of therapeutic options, she hopes that any individual will be able to find the therapy that is meaningful and appropriate their wellbeing journey.  She says “I sought help in my teens and again in adult life. You never know what may ‘hit’ you and I found the support I was given was inspirational and offered me coping strategies that have become part of who I am today. We often feel out of control and sometimes overwhelmed but if we are able to take back that control, then the power created to determine your future is unfathomable. All of us at WE ARE THRIVE are passionate about helping you, your friends and families to regain that power and enjoy a stronger and happier future”
