About Me

She is a fully qualified Therapeutic Counsellor. Liz is practising in Person-Centred therapy with a Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

Liz is a Level 4 CPACB qualified therapeutic counsellor and a member of the BACP.  Her approach is person-centred, which means the client is at the centre of the therapeutic process. She will work with each client to understand their issues and the change they wish to make to improve their mental health.  Liz believes the relationship between therapist and the client is fundamental to achieving positive outcomes.  Not all therapists are right for all clients but her door, heart and ears are open and ready for you!

When a client is ready to examine and address issues which are troubling them, Liz will be able to offer a positive, welcoming and safe space and work to challenge the client to explore and achieve personal growth, at a pace set by the client.

She believes in the uniqueness of each individual and understands that no issue is too small when troubling a client and she can work with you to realise the power of counselling in resolving problems and enhance day to day life.
