About me

It can be hard saying out loud that things aren’t right, or to say, ‘I’m not ok’.

It can feel uncomfortable to acknowledge that we aren’t quite feeling ourselves, or that things are just a little too much at the moment. There is no shame in this, or those thoughts or feelings that can seem to be taking over your life.

Please know that:

- This process isn’t as scary as your mind may haves you believe.
- There's always someone who wants to listen to you or just be with you.
- You can get in touch if you are interested in working alongside me.

My name is Lizzie and I have been working as a person centred integrative counsellor since 2016.  I have worked successfully with many areas of troubles and concerns over the years but the main areas of my work are stress, anxiety and confidence. My role is to work alongside you and to hear your story. I am down to earth, realistic and a friendly human, I take my role seriously but like to have fun and I'm always professional.

My way of working means that I can support you by using different processes and approaches to help you understand what is going on in your world.

If you have any questions or would like to work alongside me please get in touch.

We can arrange your free initial consultation where we can get to know each other a little, put to rest any concerns you have and answer any questions. Then if you are happy to proceed then we'll arrange your first session.
