About me

Welcome to Tebah Counselling!  

My name is Liz Scott and I am a qualified integrative counsellor of adults, couples, young people and children. 

The aim of Tebah Counselling is for clients to feel secure and 'held through the storms of life' as they gently explore what is happening for them in the present and the impact of their past experience and future hopes and fears on the here and now.

I love working with adults and children and young people aged 8-18 both in person and online from my summerhouse, which provides a warm, comfortable, and confidential space.  I am always learning new ways of helping clients and improving the service at Tebah Counselling.


Maybe you are having relationship problems or struggling with responsibilities and would benefit from laying these out before someone who is not involved in the situation.

Childhood issues

Or perhaps you have childhood or past issues which haven't been dealt with and keep rearing their heads at inappropriate times zapping your energy and ability to cope.  At Tebah Counselling we can make sense of these together, choose how to deal with them and put them to rest so you can re-energise and move on with your life.

Coping strategies

In the event you have been traumatised or are depressed or anxious all the time or having panic attacks, we can work together to find coping strategies that help alleviate these symptoms.

Life changes

If you are in a rut, procrastinating or finding making changes difficult, we can look at what's stopping you, where your personal qualities lie and work out what you really wish to do, then try out new realistic avenues in a safe step-by-step way or build up the courage to jump when it's right for you.


Becoming a parent can be one of the most wonderful but challenging times of life as everything unexpectedly can change at once with the birth of a child; tiredness can put strains on relationships, and confidence in your ability to do things and to socialise can descend to an all-time low. If you’re normally a high achiever, it might be difficult to see what you’re achieving in life if you’re at home looking after your child.  Expectations put on you by yourself and other people can cause conflict and send you into a downward spiral.  Postnatal depression occurs in more than 1 in 10 pregnancies and can affect both mothers and fathers.  With over six years’ experience working with clients with perinatal depression and anxiety and birth trauma, I can help by listening to the before, during and after story of birth, and support you in finding new confidence as you acclimatise to your new norms.

Spiritual issues

Or when you are feeling hopeless, struggling to find meaning in life, finding it hard to accept your mortality or in spiritual distress, and need someone to confide in outside your social circle without judgement, or fear of burdening or upsetting those closest to you, together we can freely and safely explore your innermost hopes and fears from your standpoint without any pressure or bias.  I am a Christian and welcome clients of all faiths or none.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm trained as an integrative counsellor using person centred, psychodynamic, CBT and creative approaches to counselling, including sandtray therapy.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
