About me

Hi, I'm Liz and I look forward to working with you.I am passionate about empowering people to take back control of their own lives and become the person they really want to be. Seeing clients leave counselling free from the heavy burdens they dragged in with them and freed up to live their lives to the full is what floats my boat!

I am a Registered Counsellor with over 12 years experience.
Many of my clients come because they are experiencing anxiety, stress or depression, maybe due to present circumstances, maybe because of things that happened in the past, or perhaps they just don't know why and don't know where to turn.

We all experience times of difficulty in our lives, when talking to family or friends may not be enough.

This is when turning to a counsellor can be the best decision you will ever make.


As my client, I will help you to look at issues and situations that are causing you distress, whether from the present or the past. I will help you to understand your thoughts, feelings and behavior. I will help you to to achieve any changes you decide you want to make, including letting go of the past in order to move forward with your life.

Counselling is for anyone who is experiencing difficulties or who wants to find a way forward.

I can offer you:

  • time just for you
  • someone to listen
  • a safe place where you won't be judged
  • somewhere to let your feelings out
  • a confidential service
  • someone to understand
