NCFE Advanced Diploma in Counselling Skills and Theory
I am a caring, conscientious and competent counsellor/psychotherapist with extensive experience in offering support, rehabilitation and guidance to clients who are experiencing challenging times, be it through trauma experienced, mental health struggles such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or relational issues. I continuously endeavour to offer a warm, safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for my clients to explore and understand difficulties which may be impacting on everyday life, whilst learning new skills to enable them to manage situations or emotions.
Utilising over 8 different styles of massage including Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy and Table Thai Stretching, I specialise in body work and holistic therapies. With more than 18 years of experience, I regularly combine aspects from different treatments to attain the best individual results.
Meta Health Master Practitioner – Meta Kinetics Practitioner – EFT Practitioner
My journey into exploring physical, mental and emotional patterns of health,began with a diagnosis at 18 with an autoimmune disease. Subsequent training and employment in the NHS in Radiotherapy(AP),Chronic Disease and as a Self Management Co-ordinator, together with my own personal journey created a deeper awareness, empathy and transparency of what individuals may experience with their physical and emotional health. This personal and professional experience has enabled me to transition to my own practice, so I can observe and facilitate working with individuals as a ‘‘whole being’ rather than just as the symptoms they are experiencing.
Using a persons medical diagnosis/symptoms, I use a systemic approach termed Meta Health® analysis, to explore through specific questioning the plausible relationships between adverse events/stress conflicts, brain relays,physical symptoms, belief structures, emotions, feelings and patterns of behaviour to determine why the body maybe experiencing symptoms.
Elizabeth is passionate about care of the skin. Her extensive knowledge is based on the principle that the skin protects as well as reveals the inner soul-life as it mediates between individual, people and environment.
Working with Martina Gebhardt products, a simple and soulful skincare range, and using rhythmical and pulsing movements, the skin and the person feel met and held, so that inner and outer radiance can emerge.
Her facial treatments are designed around the client’s specific skin condition and needs. Elizabeth has particular experience with rosacea, teenage acne as well as irritated, hypersensitive skin conditions.
Children and Young People’s Mental Health including: Post Adoption, Couple Therapy, Family Conflict, Therapeutic Parenting, Family Loss, Depression, OCD and ASD, Sexuality, Eating Disorder (If under Psychiatric care for risk management)
I have a wealth of experience of working within mental health with children and young people and within difficult relationship issues. I work in inpatient facilities and within NHS CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service) and have worked with private clients/families.
I am aware of how hard it is to ask for help and if only I could give you a gift to know that I am not here to judge you but to be on everyone’s side to help you be able to enjoy each other and have the kind of relationships you want.
When working individually I have lots of experience in engaging young people and children and being creative and playful when needed.
Kinesiology & brief, solution-focused therapy to resolve emotional problems & achieve goals
Author of The Therapist Within You (2009) and Relearning Experience (in preparation), and creator of Relearning Experience Process (REP), I help people to overcome emotional issues (such as PTSD, anxiety, emotional and physical pain, allergies, stress, unresolved anger or guilt, addiction) and achieve specific goals (such as drug-free natural childbirth, improved work or sport performance, motivation and social confidence).
We (the client and I) will work by first delineating and articulating the problem and desired goal. Then we’ll find out when and how in your history the problem was created. We will resolve the problem there at its origins. Finally, we will test that the problem has been resolved and that the goal is now achievable.
My approach has been developed over many years of training, practice, study and reflection, and is economical, rigorous and highly effective.
I trained in Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy at the College of Naturopathic Medicine, following many years of interest in natural forms of therapy and nutrition in particular. I have since worked in a number of areas, particularly with female hormones, inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, digestive problems, stress and learning difficulties. I have contributed to a number of publications in relation to hormones and provided consultancy advice to schools, both to the teachers regarding stress management and for students with severe learning difficulties. In addition to this I deal with a wide range of conditions in my clinic.
I am passionate about helping people to identify the root cause of their symptoms or condition/s using a functional medicine approach.
Nutritional Therapy can be used to help address many conditions, including IBS, hormonal imbalances, depression, inflammation, allergies, toxicity, weight management, skin conditions, lack of energy and poor sleep. It is also extremely powerful in improving a person’s overall well-being and reducing the risk of developing chronic disease in later life.
