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. he 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.

Services

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:

  • Abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Covid-19
  • Depression, loss of enjoyment
  • Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual issues
  • Home, identity and cultural differences
  • Long term / Terminal illness
  • Low confidence, self esteem
  • Stress, anger
  • Trauma
  • Work/life balance, ambition, burn out

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 speak 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 speak, 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 speak 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 24 hours for cancellation.
