Trustees and Team

Jonathan Street - Chairman

I was born and raised in Stroud and have lived now for almost 40 years in and around the Stroud District. My 2 grown up children both work in Cirencester in the Financial Services industry. After over 20 successful years of owning a Cirencester based printing company, which concluded with a business sale and merger, I have now  embarked on a new career in Financial Services being the principal owner of a St. James’s Place Wealth Management Partnership. Outside of work my current community involvement includes volunteering for a local charity and I have recently become a trustee for the TBYBP.  I enjoy watching rugby especially in the Kingsholm “Shed” and also belong to local cycling and scooter clubs being an active member when the weather allows!

Lisa Barry - Trustee & Counsellor (MBACP)

Hi I’m Lisa and I’ve been with The Project since it first opened.

As a counsellor I will be offering a one-to-one confidential counselling service, within a safe, non-judgemental environment which allows you to begin your story where you wish.  I understand that life doesn’t always provide us with the right conditions so building a relationship on trust, empathy and honesty is paramount.

As an experienced integrative counsellor I am able to bring together different elements of therapy, enabling me to support my clients with whatever they may be dealing with in their life. Working at that their own pace, keeping their agenda. Supporting them, empowering them to work towards finding the answers within.

I also facilitate the anxiety support group here at the centre.

If you are experiencing difficulties I would love to hear from you.

My qualifications are:

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP)
  • BACP Certificate of Proficiency and registered
  • I am committed to regular monthly clinical supervision
  • I continually undertake further training, working within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework for good practise and continual professional development (CPD) requirements.

Chantelle Walsh - Operations Manager

On starting with the project as a volunteer in January 2019, I was delighted to be promoted as the Operations Manager in November 2020.

Over this period of time I have made some amazing friends within the project and many new contacts within the community.

Being compassionate, this new role has allowed me to continue supporting the needs of others in a non – judgmental way, offering sensitivity in our friendly support hub.
