About me

Hi, my name is Eliza and I am looking forward to meeting you. I am a warm and caring person who is passionate about psychology and psychotherapy. I believe that mental health problems are just a survival response to unusual circumstances. As you experience adversity whether it is bulling, violence, an accident, a medical diagnosis or any other traumatic event, in order to survive, we develop different ways to protect ourselves such as hypervigilance - a state of hightened alertness that allow us to quickly identify potential threats. It is a wonderful mechanism in a dangerous environment. However, when we start to see a threat where there is none, our focus changes and we stop noticing opportunities, and positive things in our lives. We become very sensitive to our environment, our emotions are "all over the place" and we become disconnected from the present moment and from our real selves.  Fatigue, sleeping problems, comfort eating, addictions are just some of the side effects of such a state of alertness. Such a state of anxiety is exhausting, we become so tired of everything that we stop doing things we used to enjoy, because we have no energy for anything, we become depressed, lonely and isolated, we are not living, we are surviving every day... It is really hard to live with these difficult emotions, so if you've had enough of suffering please arrange a 30 min free consultation with me to see if I can help. It's best to email or text me as my phone is usually on silent. If you'd like me to call you back, please leave a message. 

If you decide to go on a therapeutic journey with me, I will first of all listen to you, clarify my understanding of your problem and agree with you what we need to do in order for you to get the most out of our sessions. I will not tell you what to do because therapy is your journey and you have to own it. However I will encourage you and help you to identify your strengths, and resources, your problem-solving abilities, your copying and emotion regulation skills and develop these further, so that you can become more resilient,  calmer, more confident, more capable and more assertive self. 

As an integrative counsellor and a coach, I use a variety of techniques and tools because I believe that there is no one size fits all kind of therapy. Hence, I have trained in person-centred, cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused and body-focused therapies in order to be more effective in my practice. 

While growth and change can be a difficult and a challenging process, I will be there alongside you, providing honest and empathic support, understanding and acceptance. Hence, if you are looking for someone who will truly listen and care about your well-being while you are working through your issues then please contact me by email or text to see if, and how I can help. I aim to respond to emails and texts within a day. Please be aware that I am usually really busy so I might not be able to answer your call. However, if you leave a message, I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (2.1 Hons) in Psychology as well as a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I currently study towards a Level 4 Diploma in Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy.

I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction and domestic violence.  

What can I help with?

I specialize in working with anxiety (including panic attacks) and depression, insomnia, phobias, stress, anger and low self-esteem. I also support clients who have health anxiety whether due to the new diagnosis or a chronic condition. Moreover, I have experience in working with addiction, domestic violence and chronic pain.

Whatever your struggle is, please contact me to see if I can help.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
