Lizzie Bartlett FdSc MBACP
I am an Integrative counsellor working near Woking in Surrey. I offer short or long term therapy and work with adults on a one-to-one, face-to-face basis.
My work with clients is about listening and creating a reflective space where it is possible to work through issues. I seek to create a warm relationship which encourages honesty and exploration. I believe that each client is the expert on their own lives so our work is not about me giving advice or finding solutions; it is about enabling the client to find their own way forward.
Counselling can seem like a daunting step especially if you don’t know much about it. That’s why I offer a 30 minute initial session so that we can both explore if counselling is right for you and if we want to work together. Counselling offers you a space away from family and friends to explore what is going on in your life. It can be a space to talk; a space to explore the past, present and future; a space to make connections and patterns; a space to express emotions, a space to sit and think. Most importantly, it is your space and, although exploring your own feelings can be difficult and painful, you are doing so in a safe, non-judgemental space with someone who is with you learning to see life the way you see it and standing with you in your journey.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Foundation degree (FdSc) in Integrative Counselling.
NCFE Counselling Skills and Theory, Levels 1-3.
As a registered member of the BACP, I adhere to its ethical framework.
As well as my private practice, I volunteer at The Fountain Centre which is a hospital-based charity supporting cancer patients, their families and their carers. This work has strengthened my belief in the way in which therapeutic relationships can sustain, support and promote healing and balance at difficult times. It has given me a huge respect for the way in which people face illness and death and a real interest in working with people coming to terms with illness, death and grief.
