Elizabeth Whyte MBACP (Sen.Accred.)
My experience as a therapist over nearly three decades has been both extensive and varied. The different contexts in which I have worked have enriched the experience I have gained. This has enabled me to develop helpful and creative ways of responding to those who for one reason or another are looking for Counselling.
Many of the people I see have come to work through issues in relationships or because of depression or feelings of anxiety. I also see many who have suffered losses and those who have chronic illnesses themselves or in a member of their family.
The Counselling and Psychotherapy I offer aims to work gently with people. I work towards understanding with them what is underneath and behind their difficulties so that they can be empowered to make the most of their potential.
At its best Psychotherapy is a creative process which enables people to be in touch with themselves in a liberating and enriching way and I attempt to work in this way.
I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I offer sessions to individuals and to couples. I also offer SKYPE sessions.
