About me

Hello, I’m Liza (she/her) and I’m a level 7 qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist.

I work in a person-centred way, meaning that I will fully support you in figuring out what’s going on, in a way that suits you best at this troubling period of your life.

This might sound obvious but it means, you, the client, will always be at the heart of the therapy and will retain a voice over the direction your counselling takes as we begin (or pick back up) the healing process.

The therapy I provide is private and confidential, and I will listen, I mean REALLY listen.

Choosing a therapist is daunting and let’s not pretend that a photo of the person you are considering engaging isn’t a major factor!

Will they be kind enough/old enough/experienced enough? Can they hold your problems/pain/confusion? Can you trust them, and will they like you? These are all valid questions yet rarely figured out through a photo alone.

But you’ve taken that difficult first step of deciding you need to reach out to a professional for help.

Now you need to carefully choose a person with the correct skills and knowledge to help you tackle the issues that are troubling you.

Take that next step with me and let’s start exactly from where you are now and we can navigate through your problems together.

I’m northern and straightforward, thoughtful and compassionate. I will explain the process clearly and I won’t complicate the process with academic speak and jargon from textbooks.

Call for a natter and let’s see if we can work together to figure out what you need, this introductory call is free and gives you a chance to decide if you would like to arrange an in-person session.

I’m looking forward to meeting you.

Training, qualifications & experience

Level 7 - PGDip Counselling and Psychotherapy

Level 5 - BSc (Hons) Counselling (first class)

MBACP (Member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists)

In addition to counselling, I also have many years’ experience in mental health, working in a community mental health team, supporting carers of people with severe and enduring mental health issues (for example, schizophrenia, chronic depression etc.). I’ve provided emotional support on the acute psychiatric ward and have provided a counselling service in a male Category B prison. I also work with people who experience emotional trauma following stroke, in particular supporting people with aphasia (communication difficulties).

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
