Welcome to Woodland Counselling
for Couples and Individuals
Hi there, I'm Liz and I'd like to welcome you to my practice, Woodland Counselling. Please feel invited to use the information on my website to help answer any questions you might have about working with me, such as the Fees and Services that I provide, how to Contact me, and a little bit About Me as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
I have trained as an integrative counsellor, and believe that therapy can help us evolve from surviving to thriving. I became a counsellor for many reasons, but fundamentally because of the powerful way in which counselling can help you take back control of your life story; tomorrow does not have to be like yesterday.
Beyond my initial counselling training, I have also gained specialist training in working with couples and apply the very same belief; we can change the dance between us and our partner.
Sometimes without any reason, situations or people take away our trust, autonomy and belief in the world. It can feel impossible to take another chance and say our story out loud, so I can offer you a calm space to explore what feels safe to you until you are ready. I will work without making assumptions about the individual struggles you are dealing with, letting you tell me how it is for you.
In therapy, it is possible to find a way through your experiences, unlearn beliefs that no longer serve you and re-gain that sense of you; a you that is more than what you've been through.
