My name is Elizabeth, and I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor and certified online therapist. From time to time we all struggle to find our way through life’s challenges, and I am here to help you through these difficult times. My specialities include helping with low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and finding a way through those dark times. I will listen with care and warmth. We can work at whatever pace you choose and feel comfortable with. This is about providing a unique space just for you. You can unravel your feelings and work out how you would like to move forward in a direction right for you. I have a flexible approach that puts your needs at the centre of our work together.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals. I am also a Level 2 Professional Member of the Association for Counselling & Therapy Online (ACTO). This means I take great care to work professionally, with sincere respect for you. I provide a safe space for you to talk about your life circumstances and accompanying feelings. Confidentiality is a priority, as is my commitment to empowering you to be your best version of yourself.
Currently, I am working online using Zoom (a secure video platform) which means you can benefit from being in the comfort of your own home (or perhaps car) for our sessions. Zoom is user friendly, works on phones, laptops and tablets and is encrypted end to end. Check out my tips for online therapy on the next page.
Alternatively, you may prefer using a telephone for our therapy sessions which relies less on good internet connections and may reduce anxiety for some people who are not keen on using a camera.
I also offer email therapy using ProtonMail which is highly secure and confidential (and also free to use). Some people may prefer email therapy as the slower pace allows for reflection and considered responses, it also enables you to write at a time that suits you.
In contrast to using tech for our sessions, I have limited availability for outdoor therapy sessions. Outdoor therapy provides an alternative to the more traditional therapy session and benefits from gentle walking or sitting in nature to stimulate endorphins and reduce anxiety.
I charge £45 per 60-minute session and payments are to be made in advance through bank transfer. I have a range of appointment times, including evenings, and can work flexibly around your commitments.
It can be daunting making that first step to take control of your situation, but here you are doing that already. Let’s build on this together.
I truly look forward to meeting you and starting our therapeutic journey together.
