Dr Liza Morton, Chartered Counselling Psychologist
One Allan Park
Life can be tough and sometimes we need support. At times we can experience problems with our thoughts, feelings or relationships. We may find ourselves repeatedly in difficult situations and feel stuck. Psychological therapy offers a confidential, safe and supportive relationship, with a qualified professional, to explore these difficulties. Psychological Therapy can help alleviate distress, improve psychological functioning and build resilience to life’s challenges.
My approach is individualised for each client and I work collaboratively with them, drawing on my extensive training in a variety of psychological theories, approaches, frameworks and techniques.
I usually meet with clients weekly or fortnightly but I am willing to negotiate the regularity of our sessions.
Evening sessions are available and I can also offer therapy by Skype/Facetime.
I also provide supervision and consultancy to psychologists who may be either in-training or experienced practitioners.

What is Counselling Psychology?
Counselling Psychology is a relatively new branch of applied psychology, which focuses on a holistic understanding of psychological wellbeing. Counselling psychologists apply psychology to working collaboratively with people across a diverse range of human difficulties, including mental health problems and life issues. Counselling Psychologists work with the individual’s unique psychological experience to empower their recovery, improve psychological functioning and to alleviate distress. The title Counselling Psychologist is protected by The British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professional Council and anyone using this title must be fully qualified, registered with these professional bodies and adhere to their ethical and professional codes of practice.
