About me

My name is Lizzie, I'm a qualified registered counsellor based in Lewes, East Sussex.

I offer empathic supportive counselling for adults who are experiencing loss of any kind, for those who are feeling broken and burdened with anxiety, depression or low self esteem.

You may be feeling stuck and not sure where to turn, talking things through with a warm approachable counsellor can help ease the burden that you’re carrying, bringing a huge sense of relief. Together we can find a way forward in your life.

I provide a listening, accepting space where you can talk about any concerns, worries or emotional pain you’re experiencing. Whatever’s worrying you I will do my best to help. There’s no expectations about what you talk about, it’s a safe environment where you can talk freely without the fear of being judged.

In sessions you can find ways of coping better, begin to make the changes you need in your life, and feel more comfortable with yourself. Being fully heard by another person can be life changing.

Member organisations


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.
