Hello , I am Liz , welcome to my website.
Life can feel overwhelming to all of us at at times. Events from the past, problems today and concerns about the future can all make life challenging. Sometimes we need support and encouragement to work through our difficulties or just feel that we would benefit from talking things through.
Finding someone you can trust to talk to isn't always easy. It isn't always possible to turn to family, friends or colleagues. It may be difficult to be fully open with them, you might be concerned that they won’t understand or be worried about burdening them.
Talking through your problems with a professional Counsellor or Psychotherapist can help you to see things more clearly, make choices and move forward.
I am a professional Counsellor and Psychotherapist and have experience in working with adult clients of all ages, genders and backgrounds to address difficulties that include;
Anxiety and Stress
Bereavement, Grief and Loss
Family and Relationship issues
Feelings of Guilt and Shame
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Before I trained as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist I worked in a number of demanding roles within private sector organisations and charities. I therefore have a particular interest in helping clients from across West Yorkshire who are experiencing difficulties with; work-place stress, achieving a work/life balance, changing career, redundancy or finding meaningful work.
Whatever your reason for seeking counselling or psychotherapy I offer time to talk, confidentially, in a safe place where you will be listened to without being judged. I hope you will find me welcoming and understanding with a genuine desire to help. I work on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to feel good about yourself and your life.
My practice is in a private office in the picturesque town of Holmfirth in the Holme Valley near Huddersfield, in Kirklees West Yorkshire. There is parking nearby and it is within easy reach of Huddersfield, Honley, Brockholes, Meltham, Marsden, Slaithwaite, Denby Dale and Penistone by car or bus. I also offer sessions online via Teams (no account necessary) or telephone.
I appreciate that you may find it challenging to reach out and arrange a meeting. You've already taken the first step by finding my website. if you are unsure about whether Counselling or Psychotherapy is right for you , please feel free to contact me to arrange a brief telephone conversation to help you decide.
