"Every human being has a vast potential for personal growth – a natural tendency to synthesise all aspects of their being to become the fullest realisation of themselves."

Hello, I'm Liz – a professional psychotherapist accredited by the BACP and lecturer in psychotherapy/counselling at Warrington and Vale College.

I specialise in Psychodynamic counselling which works short and long term and will take into consideration all aspects of your life and experiences, giving you the opportunity to work through whatever you are facing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a Counsellor at The University of Derby, which specialises in psychodynamic counselling. This type of counselling takes into consideration the whole person, and all aspects of your life.

As well as being a counsellor I lecture at Warrington and Vale College, on all levels for trainee counsellor's including the Counselling Diploma.
I also work on a voluntary basis at East Cheshire Hospice in Macclesfield.
Prior to training as a Counsellor I worked in personal development and self confidence building.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
