In an uncertain world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, lost and unable to cope. Life can quickly get on top of you. Each day is a struggle and your negative thoughts can get out of control. These emotions can lead to anxiety, stress, depression, relationship problems, sleeping and eating issues or even suicidal thoughts. Maybe there are issues you’ve been struggling with for some time or perhaps something has happened that has thrown you off course.
You don’t need to get through this on your own. I am here to walk beside you and support you in getting your life back on track. I believe that talking really does have the power to transform and change how you feel. Together we can work through whatever problems you are facing and help you feel better. I won’t judge or tell you what to do. We can look at strategies that can help in both the long and short term and slowly unpack where things went wrong. With the right support and a safe space to explore your issues, life can be happier and more fulfilling.
A client's recently commented:
'I cannot recommend Liz highly enough. I feel completely at ease during my sessions and was completely comfortable from the start. I can say that from working on myself with Liz I am starting to see the benefits as are those around me. After only a few weeks of sessions I completely trust her and look forward to speaking with her each week. It's changing my life for the better. '
For me, counselling is a vocation not a job and I am passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. I hope I can make a difference in yours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have a postgraduate diploma in therapeutic counselling and I work integratively which means that I draw on a variety of approaches in my counselling practice. My counselling journey began as a volunteer counsellor for Childline and has included working in schools and in a local charity for women.
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.
