Mary 'Elizabeth' Curtis, MBACP, Counselling for adults and adolescents
"I will give you the opportunity to explore & untangle whatever is bothering you. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, addiction, feeling sad or something else. Together we will find a way forward. Immediate appointments available.
My approach to counselling is person-centred and straight forward focusing entirely on your individual needs. I work with you, guiding, supporting, encouraging and sometimes challenging you to find the best way forward for you.
I can offer immediate appointments for long and short term work during the day including Saturdays and evenings Mon - Fri. I am based in Adwick-le-Street where I have a warm, comfortable and welcoming counselling room. The room is easily accessible on the ground floor with easy parking outside.
I am a Registered member of BACP and work to their code of ethics.

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.

I have worked for Wakefield Youth Support Services and Doncaster Education Services. I began working at Doncaster Mind when I started my training in 2008. I am now focusing on helping people in my own private practice as a counsellor and supervisor.
"I'm a Student Counsellor and chose Liz for my personal counselling as part of my training. To be quite honest, I was nervous at the thought of having counselling myself. I needn't have been - Liz put me at ease straight away; I found her to be accepting, understanding and empathic. She helped me to focus on what I wanted to work through, ensuring I got the most out of the sessions, and gave me a safe space to do so. I found the experience to be an invaluable one both personally and professionally. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Liz to anyone considering counselling".
