Liz Parry MBACP Dip.Counselling
My counselling approach is warm, calm, understanding, judgement-free and confidential. We will work together, at your pace to explore the challenges you are facing. My aim is to really listen to you, help you see things more clearly, and support you in finding ways to move forwards.
We all have times in our lives when we find things overwhelming, we can feel things such as sadness, frustration, anxiousness, helplessness, anger and loneliness. We may struggle to cope or we may feel dissatisfied with our life. This is where counselling can help.
Our relationship will be at the centre of how we work together. Clients tell me that they feel heard and understood during our work together. I offer a safe space where you have the chance to talk openly and privately about your concerns in a way that you may not be able to do with friends or family. My aim is to help you explore your thoughts and feelings, look at how you view or understand your issues and to support you in making the changes that you want to make in order to improve your wellbeing.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I can offer long or short term counselling to people who are struggling with a range of issues including; stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement, issues surrounding sexual abuse, low confidence, low self-esteem and family issues.

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.
