I am proudly LGBTQ + and have an open, inclusive approach.
Hi I'm Lizzie (she/they), I am fully qualified and accredited by the NCS and DBS checked. I am experienced in working with abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, identity and have worked with carers. Often there are many factors that play into the emotional distress that you may be experiencing. The most important thing is that we can establish a trusting relationship where you feel safe enough to start engaging with whatever is troubling you. I am here to help you move forward with your life, to make sense of your emotions, trust yourself and start living a fulfilled life. Email or call me now to have a free chat.

I have received additional training, in working with clients from the Black, Asian and LGBTQ + communities, and use affirmative practice.
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Manchester and offering online counselling to the UK. My approach is warm and friendly and I work with care and compassion. I offer a safe space, free from judgement, where you can be yourself and explore any issues that may be causing you confusion, discomfort or distress. You will decide what we talk about and we will always work at a pace that is comfortable for you. It is important, to me, that you feel at ease working with me, so I offer a free first session (50 minutes), so you can see how I work and decide whether you wish to continue.

Hello there. My name is Karl and I appreciate you taking the time to read my profile. If you're struggling with unhelpful or negative thoughts and emotions then I can appreciate how distressing this may be for you. I can help you manage these through the use of CBT & EMDR based techniques and strategies. In my practice I consider my clients to be a co-therapist and we will work together. CBT works by the theory that we can manage and modulate our emotions through evaluating/changing our cognitions & behaviours accordingly. EMDR utilises bilateral stimulation (eye movements) to aid the reprocessing of symptoms of Trauma and PTSD.

Counselling therapy can help support you with many difficulties you may be facing, which are causing anxiety, low mood, low self worth. By working together we can explore the roots of the issues, bring understanding to the here and now, maintain tools and techniques moving forward to attain the goals you wish to achieve. Many clients seek therapy to have a better understanding of themselves, with this knowledge comes power to unearth thoughts, feeling and emotions that may have been masked.

My passion is to help people who feel stuck, and want to flourish in their lives. Maybe you feel stressed, or exhausted, or there is something missing or something in the way of you really knowing happiness. If you don’t know where to start, a good place to begin can be to find someone you feel safe with, so that you can open up and talk about the things that you may have always struggled to communicate. Therapy is unique as the focus will be on your priorities, your recovery, and your path to healing and creating a better life.

I specialise in helping people who have experienced frightening events, trauma or abuse, work through solutions to enable them to return to the life they once had. In some cases, this will be finding themselves for the first time. Trauma and PTSD can affect anyone that has experienced a potentially life-threatening event, or a serious injury, or witnessed one or heard about an event that has happened to a close friend or family member. Your symptoms may include some or all but not be limited to, upsetting thoughts, nightmares, flashbacks, avoiding people, places or situations, irritability, anxiety, jumpy, panic attacks and more.

Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self. It explores your needs and processes feelings as they arise and from this comes a new clarity of awareness. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, confusion, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

I am offering a low cost counselling service. Through my voluntary work I see the real need for assessable counselling and I am now able to provide that through Zoom or telephone. I first discovered counselling when I was referred to one many years ago. The experience for me was life changing. It was one of my first relationships that valued my choices and it and me gave me the tools, knowledge and courage to make changes in my life. I believe no one will know the truth about themselves until you find it by yourself. In doing so will give you greater value and empower you to make your own choices.
