About me

Hello, I'm Elizabeth, welcome to my page!

I am a UKCP accredited Person-Centred Psychotherapist & Counsellor which means that my work is tailored to the needs of each client to create a safe, warm and non-judgmental therapeutic environment in which they can explore issues and affect change in their lives. I have been described as being inviting, warm, understanding, down to earth, patient and having an ear for detail. I’m particularly skilled at facilitating clients to make sense of their experiences.

I aim to put clients’ interests first, respect their autonomy and confidentiality, and value diversity; all within clear ethical boundaries. I welcome different client expressions of themselves so if you like to speak a lot, enjoy moments of silence, want to doodle, draw mind maps, make notes etc.; you can do so in our sessions. Clients experience relief that they can be themselves whether that’s feeling sad, happy, angry, despondent, confused or other emotions.

I undertake regular supervision with a highly qualified supervisor, and am committed to Continuing Professional Development. I keep abreast of the latest trends as I recognise that areas such as media, social media and technology can have an impact on people’s relationships and sense of self.

This profile only gives you a brief overview of me and how I work. Please do visit my website at http://www.elizabethclarke.com to find out more details.

Counselling Trainees

I am able to provide counselling sessions for trainees who require a person-centred counsellor as part of their course requirements. In addition I can support those who wish to use theoretical language in their personal therapy sessions to link their own processes to the key tenets of person-centred theory (e.g. the six-condition hypothesis, regard-complex, self-concept/structure, difficult processes etc.). This is particularly helpful for kinaesthetic learners.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working with clients across a number of presenting issues for example: abuse (physical, sexual, verbal), addiction, anger, anxiety (general & social), Aspergers Syndrome, behavioural Issues, bereavement, depression, eating problems, low self-esteem, relationship issues, sexuality, work issues, self harm, stress etc.

I’ve worked with clients who feel they need to change their circumstances, but don’t know where to start. I also have experience of working with different belief systems such as Atheism, Christianity, Judaism, Spiritualism etc. and with clients from different cultural backgrounds.

I currently work in my own private practice as a psychotherapist & counsellor.  Outside of counselling I have experience of working at managerial levels in large blue chip organisations, as well as being self employed for a number of years. I’m therefore comfortable working with clients who are more cognitive/thinking in their processing of experience as well as those who make decisions based on feelings/gut instinct.

Training

I undertook 4 years of post-graduate level training at the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) reading an academic and clinical Masters Degree (MSc) in Person-Centred & Experiential Psychotherapy (Merit).  This course is accredited by the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) where registered psychotherapists must achieve stringent academic and clinical criteria for registration/accreditation (such as 4 years of personal therapy, three years of clinical supervision and 4 years of postgraduate level study with 100% attendance).

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.

BACP

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
