My name is Angela and I am a qualified, registered and insured counsellor. Coming to see a counsellor can feel like a big step. Speaking about our struggles is not easy, and can still be taboo in many ways. I feel strongly that people can access support when needed. There is only so much we can manage on our own and sometimes our closest relationships are too close to help us see more clearly. Counselling offers a reflective space to explore aspects of your life or patterns that seem to repeat.

Hi, my name is Liz. Welcome to my profile. I work with clients to help them really understand why they are thinking, feeling and behaving in the way they are. Past and present events and experiences influence how we feel about and therefore treat ourselves which then impacts on all relationships in our lives. By understanding where these thoughts come from and why you may have such huge emotional and physical reactions or equally such suppressed feelings you can change the way you behave towards yourself and others. I would like to help you make the changes you need so that you can lead a healthy, happy and fulfilling life

I am here for you if you're going through something that's difficult, confusing or unbearable (on your own or as a couple/relationship). No matter how hopeless it feels, bring it to the safety of our therapy room and together we'll find a way forward for you. Therapy with me is a space to slow down, feel safe, and expand your awareness so you can find a way through. It's also a place to experiment, take risks, and even be rebellious. You might discover parts of yourself that you couldn't see before, like the roots of a tree. As an LGBTQ+ therapist, respect for Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity is at the heart of my work.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can be a space to explore current or past concerns, desires and hopes. You may be wanting to get to grips with an aspect of yourself that keeps tripping you up or is holding you back in some way. You may be struggling with current losses, relationship difficulties, adversity, or have a sense of longing that you cannot make sense of. You may have experienced a sense of low self-esteem/ self-worth due to early experiences of being misunderstood or unaccepted for who you are or have experienced neglectful parenting or trauma or simply need a space in your life to figure something out.

There are different times in our lives when we may encounter challenges in our emotional world. Transition and change can sometimes trigger these challenging feelings. For example, moving home or employment, changing relationships or friendships; life changes such as going to university or reaching age milestones. Any of these can significantly affect the way we feel about ourselves. We react in different ways to what we encounter in our environment. We might become depressed or overwhelmed by intense emotions or we might feel anxious and unable to engage in social activities. It can all become too much to manage alone.

A psychodynamic therapist, I bring specific training and experience in trauma, in terminal and chronic illness & bereavement, alongside specialisms in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (GSRD) and LGBTQ + affirmative practice. I have particular experience with supporting people through the process of questioning and discovery their gender identity. My work is deeply informed by my long-term past occupation as a gardener. This work taught me a great deal about presence. It taught me also about the nature of transformation, of the gains and the losses that can come with it, and the deep connection between the two.

You may or may not know in advance what the source of your difficulties may be. Part of our process is to explore together what has led you here. Every person is different. Amid the stresses of daily life, it’s easy to lose touch with our own deepest needs and feelings – until they become too painful or persistent to ignore. But counselling is a time set apart in which you can be real about how things are and how you feel, however confusing or complicated that is.
