About me

I’m Lizzie and I love what I do! I have been working as a person centred integrative counsellor since 2016. This 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.

I have worked successfully with many areas of troubles and concerns over the years but the main areas of my work are stress, anxiety, confidence and autism. 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.

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.

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.

As part of my ethical practice, I complete a minimum of 30 hours of CPD (Continued Personal Development) a year. Some topics that I have had training on in recent years include focuses on: Autism, LGBTQ+ and Bereavement.

In addition to owning my private practice, I am also currently working at Fegans. This organisation is a charity based in the South East who support children and families. Through my work here, I have experience with; anxiety, depression, stress, grief, disordered eating, self-harm, trauma, low self-esteem, low self-confidence and phobias to name but a few.
