About me

Change isn't easy but nothing is as painful as staying stuck where you don't belong. 

Perhaps you're in the middle of a life transition and are struggling with finding the way forward. Maybe you're in a relationship or a job that just isn't working anymore. It might be your relationship with food or alcohol which is out of hand.  Or it could be just feeling uncomfortable within yourself.  

All these issues can cause anxiety, low mood and a lack of self-esteem. 

I will help you explore the issues that you're struggling with and find the root causes of the symptoms you're experiencing.

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.

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

My name is Liz and I am an experienced 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. I work with clients who have problems with relationships, identity, loss, self-esteem, eating disorders and abuse. 

Member organisations

BACP

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.
