Hello. It's a difficult decision choosing a counsellor. My name is Liz and i would like to help you. Together we can unravel tangled personal issues, cope with the problems of everyday life, reach clarity and learn to laugh again. Helping you resolve your unique challenges matters to me.
Everyone is different and my approach is gentle, personal and effective, encouraging self empowerment. I have worked with many clients with anxiety, depression, and mental health issues, as well as substance misuse, bereavement, eating disorders, personal crises and suicidal tendencies. (see below)
As i am an integrated counsellor, we will utilise a range of techniques including CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and mindfulness to explore behaviour and negative programming, in a tranquil, non-judgemental atmosphere. We will develop new coping skills to re-establish your self esteem.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
