Liz Marley DCC, PGDip, MSc
If you are currently finding life difficult because of recent events or experiences from childhood and feel you just can't talk to your partner, family or friends, then I can help you explore, understand and move on from these uncomfortable feelings so you can feel better and get your life back on track. I know it can be a bit daunting to come and see a counsellor for the first time, but be assured that you will receive a warm welcome and most people find counselling a very useful and rewarding process.
Many of my clients come with relationship problems and, as an accredited couple counsellor, I see both individuals and couples for a variety of relationship issues such as affairs, poor communication/arguments, drifting apart, sexual problems/lack of intimacy and stepfamily difficulties. Another growing problem for couples and relationships is the use of technology for accessing pornography, sexting, cybersex. This can lead to sex addiction with many negative consequences for the person's relationships, social life, finances etc. Couple counselling gives each partner the time to talk, listen and understand each other better. People may also come to talk about separation and how to end their relationship amicably.
I also work with other problems such as abuse, bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, poor body image and disordered eating. For example, many people are aware now that diets don't work, so for those of you fed up overeating, comfort eating or bingeing, the Nu-Leaf programme, comprising 6 to 10 sessions, aims to help you understand the feelings leading to this cycle of behaviour and develop your own personal plan towards a much healthier and more balanced relationship with food for the rest of your life while losing weight in the process!
