I’m Liz (she/her) and I’m an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who has worked in a broad range of services, including in the community-based and voluntary sector services, in a university setting, in hospitals, with a broad range of employers, and in private practice. I hold a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in West London and the Level 7 (Master’s level) Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Studies from Metanoia in partnership with Middlesex University.
I have worked with clients from a broad range of social, cultural, educational and intersectional backgrounds on many different issues including relationship problems and break-ups, difficulties at work, trauma and abuse, PTSD and cPTSD, emotional issues, bereavement and grief, anger, and mental health diagnoses such as depression and anxiety.
I am a cisgender woman, autistic and ADHD, and identify as neuroqueer. I have a special interest in working with autistic people and ADHDers, as well as those questioning whether they may be autistic or ADHD, also clients exploring their sexual and gender identities or with intersectional identities, such as being both autistic and gender queer. I work affirmatively with all identities.
The Metanoia Institute’s Level 7 Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Studies is a four year part-time clinical training including studying the process of psychotherapy and the self in relationship, and developing an integrative framework for clinical practice.
I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and am committed to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
I am also fully DBS checked under enhanced procedures.
