About me


My name is Elizabeth (Liz) Lawrence. I am a Counsellor, Supervisor, Life coach and nutrition therapist (Ad. Dip. CP, Dip Hyp CS, BA (Hons)). I offer professional and empathetic support to help you work through any problems you may be experiencing. I will help you to gain understanding, create solutions, strategies and progress positively. I use an integrative approach, utilising a number of methods to suit your needs. I also offer counselling to adults, children and young adults.


I offer effective therapy in a wider variety of areas, including: depression, stress and anxiety, relationship problems, family difficulties, bereavement, social anxieties, addictions and many more. After a long career in teaching, I offer counselling for teachers, young students with exam stress, panic and anxiety around school/university, seeing effective results in teens. I have also worked with mature students making a change in career.

I work in Chelmsford, in a confidential setting with individuals, couples and groups.

I offer a confidential and non judgmental place in which you can talk about, and explore areas of difficulty in your life. This could be an immediate crisis, such as a relationship breakdown, bereavement, or it may be due to more long terms problems such as feeling low, anxious, or depressed, having relationships difficulties, or just feeling a low mood and feeling like something needs to change.

To find out more about whether counselling could help, please feel free to give me a ring, text or contact me by email to see how I can help. Evening appointments are available.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

I offer a warm and comfortable environment that is easily accessible for wheelchairs. Please ask for more information when making an enquiry.

Additional languages

I have an understanding of Afrikaans.
