I have worked with clients as a therapist since 1998. I have worked with people with mental health issues and complex needs for 20 years. I am fully insured and registered with regulatory bodies.
Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council
The CNHC encompasses many types of alternative therapy, including hypnotherapy.
In order to be admitted to the register a practitioner must have studied to the National Occupational Standards for that profession/discipline, or have reached the equivalent of the National Occupational Standards through other relevant training or at least three years of experience and been assessed by their peers.
A practitioner must also have professional insurance and agree to abide by the CNHC Code of Conduct, Performance and Ethics.
The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Hypnotherapy can enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting hypnotherapy.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
- Grief and bereavement
- Anxiety, OCD, PTSD
As a person-centred counsellor since 1998, I work with people on the 'here and now'. I have specific training and interest in adoption, people with alcohol issues, bereavement and depression/anxiety.
Free initial telephone or online session
I offer a free consultation, which gives us chance to discuss what you are looking for and for me to explain how I help. No obligation to book a session!
If at the time of consultation, we agree that it is likely to take a block of sessions - I will discuss my options for block booking.
Availability includes days, evenings and weekends.
"Liz is incredible at what she does; one session and I have found a massive improvement! She was lovely to chat to and easy to get on with and certainly knew her stuff. I felt confident in her abilities and comfortable working with her. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Thank you for helping my son to deal with an OCD that he has. He certainly feels much calmer and less stressed about things and it has helped him to change his way of thinking following his session."
Liz is a intuitive and sensitive practitioner. She recently helped me overcome a fear of driving following a car accident. She was excellent and tailored the car treatment to my own specific needs. As a therapist myself, I highly recommend Liz – we are so lucky to have her experience and wisdom in the profession
"I came to see you in May regarding my fear or mountains as I was planning a road trip across France & Spain. I had just one session of BWRT with you. I didn't have any of my usual anxiety during the journeys we made & actually chose to take a trip up a mountain in Sierra Nevada! I even managed to make stops to get out of the car & take photos, this is a whole new experience for me as usually I would be in total panic. Thank you so much the BWRT really worked wonders & I wished I'd come to see you years ago!
"Liz has helped me with challenges I have experienced with relationships. Since seeing Liz I am calmer, happier and more able to deal with difficult situations. Thank you Liz it's been inspirational"
"I went to my friend's mum's house the other day. She has 4 dogs. As I was let in through the back door I was told not to let the dogs out, they all made a break for it and all I could do was spread my arms and legs while they all tried to run through me. I wasn't scared at all and my heart rate didn't even elevate!! It was so weird for me after spending my whole life with a terrible life threatening phobia. I used to run into traffic to avoid dogs and that was on a good day! Thank you, thank you, thank you Liz"
