Counsellor | Liz Driscoll | Qualified & Registered | lizdriscolltherapy.co.uk
Whatever you are dealing with at the moment, I can offer an understanding place to help you find a way forward. Counselling and psychotherapy can be very effective in addressing your difficulties or areas of distress and helping you find better ways of dealing with things. Depending on what you want to change and what your problem is, I draw from a range of psychological and practical approaches to help you. Some people benefit most from support talking about difficult emotions and experiences, or understanding more about why things have gone wrong, while others want help deciding what action to take. Find out more about me and how I might be able to help by visiting my website lizdriscolltherapy.co.uk.
Whether you want just a few therapy sessions - which can make a big difference - or would like to explore your issues in more depth over a longer period, I can help. You may want to focus on a particular problem or need support in a current crisis, or wish to explore your life experience or past more deeply.
The list at the bottom of the page gives you an idea about the wide range of issues I help people deal with, with some of the most typical including stress, relationship problems and break-ups, difficulties at work, trauma and abuse, emotional issues, bereavement and grief, anger, and mental health diagnoses such as depression and anxiety.
I offer a reduced-fee initial session costing £25 to help decide whether I am the right therapist for you. This will give you a chance to tell me a bit about your current difficulties and what you might like to change in your life and for us to think about the best way to help you.
Please feel free to get in touch on 07900 257150 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, to make an appointment or find out more about how counselling and psychotherapy might help you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor with around 10 years experience working in counselling and psychotherapy services, including in the community-based and voluntary sector services, in a university counselling service, and in private practice. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in West London and a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Studies from Metanoia & Middlesex University.
'Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling' means using a range of psychological theories and research findings to help find the best approach to helping with your difficulties.
I am experienced in working with adults of all ages through my work as a counsellor and psychotherapist at Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service, Ealing Abbey Counselling Service (EACS), Brunel University Counselling Service, Hillingdon Hospital, and in private practice. I have worked with people from a broad range of social, cultural and educational backgrounds on many different issues including relationship problems, difficulties at work, trauma and abuse, emotional issues, and mental health diagnoses such as depression and anxiety.
I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions as well as the UKCP Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fee is £55 for a 50 minute counselling session. I offer a reduced fee of £25 for an initial assessment session, also lasting 50 minutes – this gives us a chance to meet, discuss what you would like out of your counselling, and to think about whether I am the right counsellor for you. I can offer a range of appointments during the day and evenings Monday-Friday.
I work from my counselling room at my home in Culvert Lane, Uxbridge, which has free parking in the road outside (there are no restrictions) and is about 20 minutes’ walk from Uxbridge Underground Station.
I generally see people for sessions lasting 50 minutes, once a week. Counselling sessions are often at the same time each week, or may vary depending on what works best.
If you have mobility difficulties or a disability I would be happy to discuss in advance any particular needs, concerns, issues or questions you might have. My therapy room is on the ground floor with a single step to access the building, and a single step to access the toilet which is also on the ground floor.
