Elizabeth Burgess - Dip. Counselling, BACP Accredited, Lecturer
"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 counsellor accredited by the BACP and lecturer in 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.
Feeling overwhelmed? Unable to cope? Or just need someone to talk to?
Whatever it is you are facing I can offer professional emotional support and help you through difficult times.
Give me a call or drop me an email and I will get back to you.
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.
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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
