About me and my therapy practice

CORONAVIRUS NOTICE: NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO? I CAN SEE YOU ONLINE.

While under Coronavirus constraints, I’m at the other end of a screen – I am still there for you to spend some time with me finding out how better to cope with the present time.

Are you worried? Is anxiety, stress or depression feeling out of hand or overwhelming? Are you struggling with circumstances – the Coronavirus crisis in particular?

Or would you like to use counselling to explore inwardly and discover more self-awareness? To address something long felt but unexplored? To expand your sense of life and fulfilment? To consider a difficult decision you have to make?

All these are good beginning points for counselling.

I work in a 'person-centred' way, and with a 'Focusing' orientation. It is all about you, the way you are, the pace you want to go, the things you want to talk about – literally anything is in that remit. No two people are alike, we are each our own world, and I try to walk with you in yours for a bit to help you explore that better. I hope you find your sessions relaxed and friendly, but also gently challenging as you begin to see things in a new light. There are other approaches I draw on sometimes, if I think you might find them helpful. These could include aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), psychodynamic theory, or mindfulness, for example, or working with the after-effects of trauma.

As our work together progresses, we both hopefully get a good feel of what helps you most.

There is no magic wand - how I wish there were! But I truly believe counselling has the potential to transform people’s lives, changing the way we see and interact with our inner selves, our outer circumstances, and with others.

Practice description

I  am now working online through the secure Zoom video platform. This is easy to use and does not require a subscription or registration on your part. It works on PC, Mac or tablet but not phones. If you are unsure visit my website at https://elizabethhallscounselling.com

My first session

On your first session I will go through some practicalities with you including talking about confidentiality and answering any questions you might have. 

I will usually ask you 'Where do you want to start?' - not always an easy question! You may have come for a particular reason, event, or situation, but it may also be for a feeling, a sense of what does not feel good or right for you. There is nothing you have to talk about if you don't want to. You can take your time, and I find that usually things develop quite easily in their own way as you begin to tell me a little about yourself and what has brought you here.

If you are worried about the first session, contact me prior to the session for an informal chat or to ask questions beforehand.  I look forward to meeting you.

About me and my therapy practice

I have been the counsellor at the Breast Cancer Haven Hereford Centre for three years, and am sad to see it close. 

I am still available in my private practice for this work. Common themes are loss of sense of self, particularly after immediate treatment ends, adapting to that process of recovery, making new decisions, readjusting priorities of what is important to you in life, negotiating return to work, handling relationships, finding new self-caring ways of being, healing traumatic memory and befriending the body again after surgery.  But no part of your life is excluded - if you want to talk about it, here is the space to do it. 

Practice description


Contact the Haven in the first instance if you want to discuss your cancer treatment and get some general advice. For counselling you will need to contact me via my private practice on 07795 324575. For personal reasons I am not working over the summer but plan to be resuming online counselling in September or October 2021.

My first session

If you're in recovery from breast cancer, you've done the medical stuff, the surgery and the treatments; we're here to help you feel human again and find your path into recovery. Some treatment will probably be ongoing, and you can also talk about that if it's helpful. I am not a medical practitioner, so any questions of that nature are best referred to a breast care nurse. But I'm a good sounding board for anything else around breast cancer and how it affects you as a person. Feel free to call me first on 07795 324575 to chat and see if counselling is going to be helpful, or whether you need to contact someone else.
