About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed by life at the moment and lacking energy or motivation? Have various life events left you feeling anxious, under-confident, drained or lonely? Do you wish you could have better relationships in your life but don't know what to do about it?  Would you like to regain a sense of balance and become more resilient? Maybe you're facing a major life transition and would like to explore your options?

Or perhaps you're a parent concerned about your child or teenager and want to  support them in making healthy choices for their future?  Maybe COVID has  impacted their self-confidence and ability to make friends and you'd like them to learn some tools to empower them? 

I'm Liz and, whatever it is you're looking to achieve, I'd be delighted to accompany you on your journey. I am an integrative counsellor, and am passionate about supporting both adults and young people with their wellbeing. I have many years experience of helping people grow and thrive, be they children, teenagers,  students, young adults, parents, carers or the elderly.

Being dual-qualified in both and counselling and coaching,  I am able to offer the depth of understanding provided by therapy, as well as solution-focused work if you have specific goals you want to achieve. Using a therapy personalisation questionnaire, I tailor the way I work to your unique individual needs.

My work is underpinned by the philosophy of TA (Transactional Analysis), which provides a great framework to understand our relationships and behaviour. TA holds that everyone has the ability to learn and change. It's suited to both short-term, goal-focused work as well as longer term therapy and provides you with an understanding that you can continue to use long after you have finished having counselling. 

I am trained in trauma work, bereavement, and in using our body's signals to help  us understand and manage emotions. I have supported people with panic attacks, eating disorders, addictions, handling their anger and building self-esteem and confidence.

If you'd like to find out more, why not email me to arrange a free, no obligation phone call? 


I have worked in education for nearly 40 years and design and deliver INSET training in schools and colleges as well as in the community. Topics include Building Healthy Self-esteem, Friendships and Relationships, Emotional resilience, Loss and Bereavement, Assertiveness, Handling life transitions, Goal setting and Transactional Analysis. For practitioners working with children and young people, I run courses on Building better relationships in the classroom.

Member organisations

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.
