About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Elizabeth/Lizzie (she/they), a qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist offering both open-ended or short-term therapy, in-person in London or online country wide.
In life we all experience moments that can be difficult and hard to manage alone. If you are reading this then you may feel at the point of needing some support. Equally, you may just be curious about therapy and wondering what it is you could learn about yourself. This is where I may be able to assist you.
I offer a calm, open and non-judgemental environment where I am aim for you to feel supported, safe, accepted and heard, to allow you to be honest and explore what is coming up for you in a confidential space.
Previously, I have volunteered with WeStand (formally MOSAC), a charity in south London working specifically with the impact of child sexual abuse on family members, in addition to volunteering with a low-cost counselling service in Hackney.
In my practice, I work in a non-judgemental, affirmative and sex-positive way with individuals of all sexual and gender identities. This includes, those who engage in non-conformative sexual practices (kink/fetish) and relationships.
I see every person as an individual, coming to therapy with their own unique experiences, story and history. Therefore, I work in an integrative way which allows me to draw on several different theoretical approaches (psychodynamic, existentialism, and person-centred) and techniques to adapt and tailor my approach to your specific needs
I strongly believe that the most important aspect of therapy is the client-therapist relationship. Therefore, I am interested in getting to know you, hearing about your experiences, relationships and the views you hold of yourself and the world around you.
We will work collaboratively to identify patterns in your life that may be unhelpful or causing you distress, whilst drawing links to your past to identify how it may be showing itself in the present. I will encourage you to use the space to process any difficult emotions you may be experiencing in order to facilitate you making the changes you desire to help move forward in life.

I offer a non-obligation free 15 minute introductory call/video call where we can discuss what has led you to therapy and explore how we may work together.
If we decide to work together, then we will commit to weekly sessions of 50 minutes.

I also offer a limited number of concessionary places for students or those on a low income. Please let me know so we can discuss this in the introductory call.
