Elizabeth Longshaw (Registered MBACP)
Hello, I am a friendly and caring person-centred counsellor.
My main areas of work include:
- Relationship issues (individuals only)
- Disability concerns
- Caring for a loved one and have strains and stresses linked to that
- Low self-esteem
If you can relate to any of the above words then please contact me. I can help you. I will work alongside you to help you grow and reach a 'better place'. This will be provided within a confidential, safe, and welcoming environment which is non-judgemental and empathic. You will be respected for who you are and valued as a unique and resourceful individual. I will support and encourage you to find your own way, so you gain a better understanding, acceptance and awareness of yourself. Our time together can be either on a long-term or short-term basis, whichever is right for you as I offer a person-centred relationship.
Please be assured that I am a qualified, registered, and experienced counsellor. Over many years I have had the privilege of seeing people leave me as stronger, restored and self-assured individuals. So why don't you see whether I can do the same for you?
Email or phone me and we will set up an initial session where we will talk about what you hope to gain from counselling and whether I'm the right person to help. The email or phone contact is not an avenue for in-depth work, it is just an introduction to one another. If you're happy to continue, after our first meeting, we'll set up a second session and from there will arrange to see each other on a basis that suits you - weekly or fortnightly. We will then continue until the relationship has served its purpose.
Make contact and let me help you reach that 'better place'.
