Liz Castle MBACP, BSc Hons, MA
I appreciate that the prospect of seeking therapy and embarking on the therapeutic process can seem daunting. I believe that the key to a successful therapeutic experience lies in the quality of the relationship between client and counsellor. Therefore, I recognise the importance of offering an understanding, respectful and compassionate environment in which you can explore your thoughts and experiences and truly be heard.
Through the process of telling and exploring your story in an objective and non-judgemental setting, I hope to help you find some clarity of thought and a shift in perspective towards finding new directions and making the changes you desire.
Training, qualifications & experience
My initial training and background lies in the psychodynamic approach to therapy and I use this as the basis for my work, although I may draw on other modalities if it seems useful. The psychodynamic model involves working with both past and current experiences, and exploring the relationship between them. This holistic approach to therapy can enable a deeper understanding and acceptance of both the root cause and immediate symptom, to open up the prospect of changing the way you think, feel and behave in your relationships, environments and life events.
I offer both short-term and open-ended therapy to fit with your needs and requirements.
