Are you tired of feeling stuck, anxious or depressed? Maybe you simply want a better life & better relationship? It could be that you struggle with making your own choices and trusting in yourself, leading to people pleasing tendencies. You may struggle with setting clear boundaries or you may compare yourself to friends, family or co-workers. Life in lockdown is challenging, overwhelming and uncertain and the way we respond with these changes can be difficult to manage. By giving ourselves the time and space to safely talk with someone who will listen, can allow us to grow and overcome the barriers that life puts in our way.
My name is Eliza and I am a fully qualified counsellor working with children, young people and adults. I offer a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space that will enable you to explore what aspects of your life you are finding challenging, that may be preventing you from living the life you would like to lead, empowering you to make positive changes. I am passionate about working creatively, helping you to explore your feelings in ways other than just through words.
Having been in the therapy seat myself, I am aware of how daunting it can be reach out for support. Please feel free to reach out to me for an informal chat to see if I can support you to feel less alone with the current difficulties you are experiencing and together, we can explore how therapy may be helpful for you and what you hope to gain from it.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most fundamental factor that contributes towards growth and positive change. It is a co-created relationship, where I will offer my deepest empathy, warmth and non-judgmental attitude to create a safe where you feel heard, accepted and empowered to take ownership over the session. The therapy session is about you and we will work collaboratively at your own pace, where I will support you fully in exploring whatever feelings and emotions you feel comfortable sharing, whether it is about the past, present, or future. The therapy process can support you in developing awareness of different parts of yourself and in recognising your own strengths, enabling you to develop towards accepting yourself fully, as I believe that a positive relationship with yourself is key to developing positive relationships with others.
