About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working with difficulties including in relationships, at work, or through trauma, mental health and identity struggles. I work affirmatively with all gender, sexual, relationship and neurodiversity identities.

I provide a confidential space to support you in understanding both your difficulties and your strengths, so you can work out what's going on beneath the surface, and what you need in order to move forward. As an integrative therapist, trained at Postgraduate Level 7 through the Metanoia Institute and Middlesex University, I use a range of psychological frameworks and therapeutic dialogues in my work.

Ways of addressing difficulties are unique for each individual, and I work with each client differently based on what they are dealing with and hope to achieve, and their identity and influences. I have a strong commitment to diversity, inclusion and social justice.

I have worked with a broad range of clients and supported those in crisis, facing mental health challenges or questions over their identity, struggling with  relationship difficulties, addressing trauma (including complex trauma cPTSD)  -  and often working out how they 'fit in' in the world.  I am neurodiversity-affirmative and work with autistic and ADHD clients, and LGBTQI+ affirmative and GSRD affirmative.

I work across the range of gender and neurodiversity identities and have a strong commitment to supporting equality, diversity and inclusion.

Deeper change and more complex or long-standing problems can take time, and a short-term course of therapy - such as six weeks - can give you a chance to see if you are ready to make a commit to longer term therapy. 

My fees for in person face-to-face appointments in Uxbridge, as well as for Zoom sessions, are £60 for a 50 minute appointment.

Please contact me on 07442 694463 or at lizdriscolltherapy@gmail.com to book a free introductory call, or if you have any questions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor with 10+ years experience working in counselling and psychotherapy services, including in the community-based and voluntary sector services, in a university counselling service, for an EAP (Employee Assistance Provider) supporting NHS staff, 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, backgrounds and identities, and through my work as a counsellor and psychotherapist face-to-face through my private practice, and at Brunel University Counselling Service, Hillingdon Hospital, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, other NHS trusts, Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service and Ealing Abbey Counselling Service (EACS). I have supported clients to move forward with a range of difficulties including relationship problems, difficulties at work, trauma and abuse, identity and sexuality, 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.

Member organisations

BACP
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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
