Liz Mace, Counsellor, Reg MBACP (Accred) HCPC Reg
People seek counselling for a wide variety of reasons and it may be for feelings of anxiety, unhappiness or dissatisfaction with life in general, depression, low mood or the experience of repeated relationship issues. Others seek counselling for painful emotions relating to life events and experiences including, generalized anxiety, illness or bereavement.
My name is Liz Mace and as an experienced and fully Accredited & Registered BACP counsellor, I work with both adults and young people on an individual basis. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and reliable setting for our meetings together. My work is underpinned by a psychodynamic approach, and I also have experience working with other models of counselling including CBT, Mindfulness and Person centred modalities.
I offer weekly individual therapy, on either short term (6-12 week) or longer term, open-ended therapy, depending on Assessment of need.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP, Accred) with an Accredited BACP and Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF) Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling. I am currently registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have full Professional Indemnity Insurance and a current CRB certificate. My private practice is based in Highfield, Southampton.
I have experience of working in independent private practice, for charitable counselling organisations and for higher education, University Counselling Services.
