Elizabeth Fritz (MA, UKCP-registered, MBACP)
I am an experienced therapist working in London Victoria, SW1. If you are struggling to cope with distressing emotions or circumstances, I can help by providing a private, safe place where together we can explore your difficulties and enable you to move towards positive change.
I work with adults on a one-to-one basis. The types of issues I help people with include: anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, work issues, coping after separation or divorce, bereavement and other challenging life situations or changes.
Even if you have supportive family and friends, it can sometimes be hard to talk to them about very personal feelings. Having the space to talk about your difficulties with a trained therapist who is completely independent of your circumstances can be very beneficial.
My role in our sessions is not to give advice or tell you what to do. Rather, I will listen to your concerns with empathy and without judgment. I will help you to express how you are feeling and together we will explore the roots of your difficulties.
Our sessions will help you to see things more clearly and perhaps from a different perspective. Understanding yourself better will enable you to make positive changes in your life, find your own answers and strengthen your ability to cope.
In addition to working in private practice, I am a volunteer bereavement counsellor at Royal Trinity Hospice in Clapham.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Middlesex University.
‘Integrative’ means that my training included a number of different therapeutic approaches, (e.g. psychodynamic, person-centred, relational, CBT, gestalt). When working with you I will draw upon the most appropriate approach according to your individual needs.
Before training and practicing as a therapist, I worked for more than 12 years in marketing and business development in the property and professional services industries. I therefore understand some of the stresses and strains of corporate life and the difficulties that may arise in trying to balance work with other important aspects of your life.
I have previously worked at the University of Roehampton, providing short-term counselling to students. I also provided long-term therapy to clients at the Wimbledon Guild and have worked as a telephone adviceline counsellor for an Employee Assistance Provider.
