Elizabeth Mosses - Relationship Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
Thanks for being brave enough to reach out for some help. That's a difficult thing to do. It means you are going to trust someone during a tough time in your life. A time when you feel vulnerable and often confused about why you feel the way you do when everyone else seems to be able to cope.
How Can I Help?
I hope I can be that someone. I have 14 years experience as a Counsellor and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I offer relationship and individual counselling and have spent many years as a volunteer for Marriage Care (look us up!).
I hope you will find me warm and easy to talk to and I hope that you will feel safe and empowered to take back control of your life and your relationships.
Let's have an initial session and see if we can go on this journey together.
What Would a Session With Me Be Like?
We would have an initial session either at my home address or in Ormskirk where I have a room.
Face to face sessions are best but if distance is an issue we can chat on the phone or use Skype.
During the Covid19 Lockdown we can have have on-line sessions or talk by phone or email.
We spend the first session getting to know each other and you have a chance to ask questions and decide if you would like us to work together.
We arrange the sessions then at a time which is convenient for you.
I am flexible with my sessions and can offer some evenings and Saturday mornings.
The sessions are usually weekly and are 50 minutes long.
There is no 'contract' as such for the number of sessions. That's something you and I discuss as we go along.

I was fortunate enough to hear about Liz Mosses as a counsellor in January 2020
Over the 6 months I met with Liz on a weekly basis both personally and via digital means. Liz has without doubt helped to turn my life around. Her skill and professionalism have been outstanding. I was struggling emotionally when I met her but her ability to listen, learn and understand the person I am and the difficulties I faced were both comforting and creditable. Liz has a wonderfully warm and pragmatic approach to counselling. She gave me some great techniques to help me cope and progress. I have to say I was both surprised and appreciative of how well she retained facts and ‘my history’. It gave me such confidence in her. I hope others will get as fortunate as I have been to have Liz as their counsellor and mentor. DK - Southport
Liz has undoubtedly got my husband and mine marriage back on track!
We had been struggling with intimacy for a long time and knew we had to have help from someone outside the family.
We successfully had been appointed Liz to be our counsellor over eight weeks (one hour slot once a week). With Covid 19 bring rife when we began counselling, we were introduced to having Zoom sessions with Liz. The first week was building up a rapport with Liz which was easy to do as she's such an empathetic character. Then week two and three saw is doing individual sessions to paint a picture of our individual backgrounds of relationships.
Once we had reached session four we discovered what our 'negative cycles' were and from then onwards we were able to move forward and build on our marriage at our own pace.
Liz gave us helpful links and used perfect theories to guide us to fathom our where we needed to work on in our marriage.
Without Liz's help and support, I feel we would constantly be dipping into our negative cycle, as Liz aided us to open up to each other on how we felt.
Unfortunately no marriage is perfect, but Liz has certainly steered us to aiming towards our own senses of perfect marriage, which has had a positive impact on the whole family.
Thank you Liz, we will always be grateful. W & P (Cheshire)
