Liz Jeffries CTA, UKCP Reg Psychotherapist. Online Therapist (ACTO).
I am a trained, qualified and experienced psychotherapist providing psychotherapy and counselling to individuals online. I am also a Certified Cyber Therapist. I have been in private practice since 2014, and before that worked in a local Women's Centre providing short-term therapy for three years. I am passionate about therapy and the opportunities it prevents for change, for greater self-understanding and for resolving difficulties or symptoms.
I currently offer online therapy via Zoom. In-person sessions will be available in Chorlton, South Manchester when COVID levels make it safe enough to do so.
What will it be like If I come to therapy with you?
I will support you to clarify your difficulties and I will help you to explore new possibilities related to those difficulties.
I offer flexibility and a confidential space too help you to gain relief from what troubles you, and to create new or different ways of living.
Therapy can be short-term or long-term. I see therapy as a unique and individual process. There is no period of time that is better or worse than another, but only a length that is sufficient to achieve what you need from therapy.
People come to therapy for a multitude of reasons. Your reasons may include wanting to work through particular feelings, symptoms or circumstances, you might want to unravel recurring themes and patterns, or you may feel a need to know yourself better or create a different life for yourself.
What Services do you Offer?
I offer psychotherapy and counselling sessions online (and face-to-face when the COVID Pandemic is under control enough to make it safe to meet in person). All sessions last for 50 minutes and sessions can be weekly or fortnightly, for as long (or as short) as is needed.
How to Get Started?
You can get started in the following ways:
- You can send me an email or text message with any queries or questions you may have or to request to book an initial consultation. I am normally able to respond on the same working day, but if not then I will do so on the next working day.

Training, qualifications & experience
I hold the following qualifications and accreditations:
- Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA-P); UKCP-Registered Psychotherapist

- Accredited Counsellor with The National Counselling Society.
I have experience of working with people with diverse needs in therapy. These include relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression, achieving understanding and insight about recurring life problems or themes and aspects of general personal growth and development.

I have 9 years experience working both face-to-face and online.
