My role as a counsellor isn’t to give advice or choose a particular direction for you… I will listen, be along side you and together we can consider ways of finding your own solutions. The sessions will be confidential and focused on your needs. Counselling is about a safe place for you to explore and express your issues, concerns and fears, whether these are past or present.

Counselling is different to talking with your friends and family. They may have strong views and a biased opinion. I know the value of listening to your concerns attentively, without judging or needing a certain outcome. If we chose to work together, I will help you to explore and clarify whatever is happening in your life.

The counselling I offer, Person Centred Counselling, it is a supportive, non directive form of therapy where you are given the space and safety to share your concerns.

As we work together, I will ask you questions which lead you to deep discoveries about your feelings, your blind spots, your needs and your hopes. I will show you empathy, understanding and will be supportive and non-judgmental.

I have qualified with a Diploma in the Theory and Practice of Person Centered Counselling. As part of my continued personal and professional development I regularly attend workshops for Counsellors/Psychotherapists.

I am supported by a BACP registered supervisor who I see on a regular basis to discuss my counselling work.

I am a member of the BACP and I am committed to working in accordance with the principles set out in their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.


Counselling is about working together in an honest, non-judgmental
and supportive relationship at a pace that you decide. There are many
reasons why you may be seeking counselling at this time, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Depression, loss of enjoyment
  • Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual issues
  • Low confidence, self esteem
  • Abuse
  • Stress, anger
  • Home, identity and cultural differences
  • Work/life balance, ambition, burn out
  • Bereavement

The time and date of the first session is usually arranged by telephone or by email. The easiest way to do this is to call me, Lizzie, on 07972 329038.

This number is confidential and is only used by me. We will set up a time/date to meet and assess each other to see how or if we would like to continue. There is no obligation to continue at this stage. It is a chance to meet up face to face and is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to begin to talk about what brings you to counselling.

If we decide to continue we will confirm a fee, discuss any existing holiday arrangements, and then meet once a week at the same time on the same day.

We may work for short or long periods of time depending entirely on how you feel things are going. I also work with a pre agreed fixed number of sessions.

Your session time is reserved each week for you and I require 24hours for cancellation.

Telephone Counselling – if face to face counselling is something that is not convenient to you, then I offer a telephone counselling service. This is a pre paid service. Sessions are 50 min’s long as per BACP guidelines. Please call me to discuss this option if required.
