Dr Ute Liersch, HCPC & BACP
Developing and securing your wellbeing is the framework of our work. Your therapy can feel like training that helps you to detach pragmatically and compassionately from problems and their influences.
I am proficient in and specialised to work with the following NICE recommended therapies.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy,
- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy,
- Mindfulness-based stress relief and cognitive therapy,
- Body feedback therapy.
I have trained and worked in the NHS, in the private sector and with charities. I am also a lecturer of Psychology at the University of London.
My therapy is pragmatic, skilled and effective in delivering sustainable and measurable change. I believe therapy is only worthwhile when it makes a long-lasting change for the better.
See what my previous clients said about our work and meet me via Skype or Zoom. I speak fluent English and German...and yes, I am one of these highly efficient and organised Germans :)
I am specialised in the following areas:
- chronic pain
- enduring mental health difficulties

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
