Elizabeth Smith B.Sc.(Hons.) Adv. Dip Humanistic Counselling MBACP (Accred).
I am an experienced Registered and BACP Accredited counsellor and work with people of all ages. Counselling can provide a supportive, safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings, and can increase your self awareness and your ability to cope. For example, you may be experiencing depression, the effects of low self esteem or anxiety, or perhaps you are struggling with a life event such as bereavement, relationship breakdown or long term illness. Exploring issues together enables you to gain insight, make changes if needed, or increase a sense of calm.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, trained in Humanistic counselling and incorporating CBT where appropriate. I work with adults of all ages, and young people and I also see couples experiencing relationship difficulties. I aim to provide a warm, caring, non-judgemental setting to explore the challenges that face you and find a way forward. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to know more or discuss your concerns with me.
