Elizabeth Halls Registered Member MBACP
I am an experienced counsellor working in Leominster. Whether you are feeling anxiety, depression, confusion, bereavement or are simply trying to work through some issue in life or decision, I hope I can help you.
My approach is person-centred, which means treating each person as a unique individual. In trying to understand your own point of view and the way you process things for yourself, I aim to discover what works best for you and go with that. I love what is called a ‘Focusing-oriented’ way of counselling, helping clients at all stages of our work together to listen to their own inner voice and wisdom. I am not an ‘expert’ on you, but try to help you to understand yourself more clearly and find acceptance, challenge or solutions from within rather than imposed from without. I don’t see myself as ‘working with’ depression, or anxiety, or stress, etc., but as working with a person. Person-centred counselors call this a ‘model of distress’ rather than a ‘medical model’. There is not ‘something wrong with you’ but you have been affected deeply by some distressing things that have happened, or are happening in your life. This approach means connecting with the person, not just the problem.
My greatest inspirational influences in my work are Carl Rogers, Eugene Gendlin, Brian Thorne and more recently, the inner-relationship focusing work of Ann Weiser-Cornell. I am a member of the BACP Spirituality division, acknowledging the importance of those aspects of our lives that give us a larger sense of self and help us to think about the world and our own sense of meaning.
I am very happy have an initial discussion if that feels useful. Please ring 07795 324 575. I hope I can help you.
- I work with TRACS counselling agency in Ludlow taking NHS GP referrals, and private in Leominster and Ludlow
- I offer counselling in a Christian or other spiritual contexts for those who specifically want to explore issues of faith as a factor in their counselling.

There are two steps into the building, and a fairly narrow entrance: if you can negotiate these, everything is then on the level, including WC. If in doubt, ring me: I'll always try and accommodate.
