About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Liz Heald and welcome to your healing journey.

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and CBT & DBT Practitioner based on the Wirral, UK. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and an individual member of the BABCP.

As my surname perfectly encapsulates, I have a passion for helping others on their healing journey to find inner peace, by working with clients to explore their issues in an empathic, non-judgemental and impartial way. My core model is Person Centred Counselling, which is exactly what it says on the tin; each person’s journey is individual and my working approach is tailored to each individual Client and their needs – no matter what these may be. I am also further trained with a Level 5 Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and a Level 3 Diploma in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy allowing for further adaptations to my approach for every client.

I have a varied professional and educational background with studying a BA Social Sciences degree in Philosophy and Criminology, I have had the privilege of studying other areas of the Social Sciences world such as Psychology, Sociology, Social Anthropology and more. I have experience working within the legal industry, the healthcare industry and even volunteering in Schools and working with young people and adolescents meaning that I have been able to view the world through many walks of life. 

During my Counselling career, I have volunteered with various agencies including AGEUK, WIRED Carer’s Support and Caritas Diocese of Shrewsbury. I have also worked within an EAP role supporting employers, whilst also running my private practice. As a result of all of this, I have worked with and deal with many issues including (but not limited to) exploring anxiety, depression, workplace stress, bereavement and loss, self-esteem and identity issues, family and relationship troubles, health anxiety and much more.

Practice description

I am an Integrative Counsellor with Person-Centred Therapy as my core model, but am able to integrate other areas of Counselling such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy if appropriate/ relevant to my clients and our work.

​Integrative Counselling essentially draws on techniques from different types of therapy to tailor the sessions specifically to each individual client.

​I also hold further qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy meaning I can utilise these approaches with clients to suit their individual needs too.

​Every single human being is unique and it would be naive to purport a 'one method fixes all' approach, especially when it comes to the complexities of the mind and how we think. By working integratively, it allows me to consider the client as an individual; taking into account circumstances, upbringing, past experiences, ways of thinking, personality traits (and the rest!!) By using elements of different approaches, this helps to ensure each Counselling experience is entirely tailored to you.
