Hi, my name is Liz and I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist and Cognitive Analytic Therapy Practitioner.
I am experienced in supporting adults with a variety of emotional, relational and mental health needs, for instance, those who may be experiencing relationship difficulties, those who may be struggling with how they feel about themselves, as well as individuals who may be struggling with past traumatic experiences or emotional distress, such as anxiety, low mood, anger and irritability and feelings of guilt and shame.
I will work jointly with you, in that I will bring my knowledge of psychological models and theories and you will bring your knowledge of yourself and your life experiences and together we will clarify your goals and needs and come to an understanding of the issues that you are struggling with and work to identify helpful ways of moving forward. I will draw on a range of psychological models and theories, depending on which approach seems best suited to your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have 17 years experience of working in a variety of healthcare settings, both community and inpatient, NHS and private. I have been working as a qualified Clinical Psychologist since 2010 and a Cognitive Analytic Therapy Practitioner since 2014.
