Lise Leblanc Counselling and Consulting Provides Online Resources for Mental Health Recovery
Lise is a therapist, certified master coach practitioner, and clinical hypnotherapist with over 20 years of experience working in therapeutic, educational, and leadership roles. She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in education, as well as several other clinical certifications (CBT, DBT, Trauma-Informed Care, Suicide Intervention, etc.). However, most of her knowledge comes from her own mental health journey.
By the age of 30, Lise had achieved “success” – she had a beautiful family, a great education, a prosperous career, good health, and money, and yet she felt anxious, dissatisfied, and stressed out. She thought she’d be happier and less stressed if she took more time to do “healthy” things – a hot baths, walks, yoga, meditation, eating more spinach, but these were more things to do and more reasons to feel guilty when she numbed out on wine, Netflix, and social media instead. Eventually she realized that true healing and happiness doesn’t come from external sources. It comes from digging deeper and doing the internal work to resolve the past trauma and inner conflict that is keeping people stuck in a cycle of stress and suffering.
Drawing on her extensive experience both personally and professionally, Lise’s goal is to help as many people as possible experience happiness and freedom from the inside out. Lise provides personal coaching and has several self-healing courses and books available on the topics of PTSD, Grief, and Stress. It took her years to heal herself, but now she takes everything she has learned to help others. She has spent the last 20 years counselling and coaching thousands of people on their own healing journeys.
When the COVID-19 pandemic began, she focused on rebuilding her counselling business and pivoting to online services. Part of that process was signing up for the ShopHERE powered by Google program as a fast and efficient way to build an eCommerce website for her business.
Lise found her eCommerce Coordinator effective, efficient, and appreciated his assistance and expertise. The ShopHERE program provided the assistance, support, and services Lise needed to help her business create a powerful online presence by creating a custom website that stands out.
“I love my new website. It is very easy to navigate and looks awesome.”
In addition to her new website, Lise found the marketing webinars very informative. She views her biggest challenge is taking the reins on the beast of marketing to drive traffic to her online store and make sales.
Lise’s advice to other business owners is to,
“find the programs and support available to help your business pivot to meet the new challenges and demands of the times.”
