About me

"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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

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".

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.
