Lizwe Makombe MBACP Registered Counsellor/Psychotherapist TCTO BA (Hons) / MA
I am a fully trained and registered Psychotherapist/Psychodynamic therapist with a Foundation degree in Therapeutic Communications and Therapeutic Organisations, a BA in the same course and an MA in Psychodynamic Counselling with Children and Adolescents all from the University of Essex. I have worked therapeutically in various settings including therapeutic children’s homes with young people and young adults with emotional behavioural difficulties (EBD), primary and secondary schools and in private practice.
I have extensive experience of working with children, adolescents and adults who have experienced a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties. These are not limited to but include: depression, anxiety, stress, anger, phobias, obsessive compulsive behavioural disorder, body dysmorphia, panic attacks. My work has also encompassed working with clients who have experienced trauma as a consequence of one or more of the following: disability; loss; separation; neglect; emotional, social and economic deprivation; physical or sexual abuse.
I offer an individualised integrative approach tailored to meet the needs of each client. I believe that this is important as every case is unique. By using a clear and focussed approach to therapy clients can see some improvement in their lives quite quickly and together we can decide what the right course of action is for you.
I offer a free and confidential session as a first step - this can be done face to face, over the phone or via video call.
For those parents or carers who are worried about their children or teenagers and think therapy may help please don't hesitate to contact me.
Reach out today.

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.
