Let me help you live YOUR life to the fullest! I have helped with so many varied issues and barriers to living life. I will work with you as an individual to find the answer that is right for you. You don’t even have to tell me the details as much of my work can be content free. Tell me how you WANT to feel and let's get you there in as few sessions as possible. I use the latest techniques of neuroscience to create quick and effective change that is lasting and can be life changing.
As you will see in the About Me section, I am a qualified alcohol counsellor and addiction specialist for gambling and nicotine. (also an ex-smoker so I know what it is like to attempt to quit!) Working in mental health for 20 years has enabled me to understand how conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress including post-traumatic stress and OCD can impact on a person. I am passionate about helping people maintain positive mental health.
So… If you have a fear, phobia or anxiety, feel depressed and have low self worth, lacking in motivation, want to stop smoking, cut down on alcohol, stop taking drugs, get a hold of a gambling pattern, break a habit, understand who you are, deal with relationship problems, boost self esteem, feel good, have a plan for your future……. Or something else….. Lets talk.

There are a few ways in which you can choose to have your sessions with me.
Face to Face Support
My therapy rooms are in Westcliff. They are easily accessible by bus, train and car (with parking available). You will need to climb one flight of stairs, but I can make alternative arrangements for our sessions if this is an issue.
Skype or Video Calling
You don’t need to leave the comfort of your home or office to be able to take part in a session. All you need is a good internet connection and headphones, and be in a place of no distractions for the session. Sessions are equally as effective as visiting me in my therapy and coaching rooms. I do require payment prior to the session starting.
Depending on your location, I may be able to visit you at your home if you are unable to use Skype, or are not able to get to my therapy room. A small additional charge for petrol may be requested. Please contact me to discuss further.

BWRT - BrainWorking Recursive Therapy®
As an Advanced Level Practitioner – I am confident in being able to help you resolve issues including

BWRT® is a model of psychology and psychotherapy, created by Terence Watts MCGI. It is based on the amazing speed with which thoughts work in the brain and takes away the emotion, allowing you to change your reaction. Even the results of deep trauma can often be resolved in literally one session. It is completely logical, practical and down to earth, and is content free – all I need to know for it to succeed is what you want to change in your life. You are completely conscious and aware of what is happening at all times. Using the four stage approach from Advanced BWRT®, we work with your core identity to align that little voice inside of you to match the person you present to others.
I am proud to be a founder member of the British BrainWorking Research Society which ensures that my skills and training with BWRT® remain up to date with latest protocols.
"Liz has been helping me using BWRT® and it has made such an incredible difference to my life. After a lifetime of abuse that had convinced me that I was completely worthless I was forever trying to prove myself and put things right. Liz has enabled me to be free of the constant, paralysing dread that I was living in so that I feel normal and comfortable in situations that would previously left me feeling crushed. I cannot recommend Liz highly enough as she has helped me back from a horrible existence to enjoy my future in a positive state of mind."

• Stress • Anxiety • Depression • Addiction • Bereavement • Life Changes • Adoption • Alcohol Work • and more...
I am a person centred counsellor, qualifying in 2000. I use the skills and experience from counselling in every session – to help you explore what is important to you, how you are feeling, how you want to feel and what you want to change.
I am likely to combine counselling with my other modalities to ensure that you are supported to reach your goal in as little time as possible.
Through counselling, I developed some key specialisms through training, or working with specialist agencies.
Alcohol and Substance misuse Counsellor – using motivational interviewing and following the cycle of change model to support people with addiction issues to identify what changes they want to make, and helping them make those changes safely
Bereavement Counsellor – Through my time volunteering with Cruse Bereavement Care, and working with the Samaritans, I have a full understanding of the pain and grief caused by bereavement. I am particularly able to help if you feel stuck in your grief and would like to release some of your feelings.
Adoption Counsellor – Qualified to support all members of the triad, in particular birth parents and adult adoptees. My training also included working with foster carers, and people going through the IVF process.
• Phobias • Fears • Anxiety • Depression • Weight Loss • Stop Smoking • Stress • OCD • Future Life Planning • Motivation • Inner Child Work
I am a solution focused hypnotherapist which means I use practical, modern, and well-researched strategies to help you make significant, positive changes to your life in a relatively short period of time.
I will typically focus on the present and the future – only using the past as a way to gather information on the history of the problem where required.
Brilliant! I had hypnotherapy before moving to my new house & job as I didn't want to make my new start as a smoker. One session & a bit of will power did the job!
Phobias Phobias can have a paralysing effect on every day life. You weren’t born with a phobia. Let hypnosis rid you of the fears that are stopping you having a good day. Hypnosis has an excellent track record in helping alleviate or diminish the symptoms of many phobias.
Self Esteem Some people seem to have a high ego, whilst others can be overwhelmed by feelings of shyness, inadequacy, and low self esteem. Hypnosis can be excellent at helping you develop inner confidence to be able to tackle those issues such as social situations, job interviews, and developing personal relationships so give your ego a boost today.
Stress, Anxiety and Depression When stress, anxiety and depression stops you living a normal and healthy life, you should seek support. Hypnosis is excellent for relaxation, boosting self esteem and confidence building – clinical hypnotherapy can have a positive effect on your ability to cope with life stressors. I offer employee support for stress management in the work place.
Psy TaP (Psychosensory Techniques and Principles) & Thought Field Therapy
Psy-Tap could be the therapy for you if you are experiencing:
• Trauma • Panic • Stress • Anxiety • Phobias • Addictions – food, drug, alcohol, gambling, shopping…. • Depression • Anger • Guilt • Performance anxiety – public speaking, driving tests, stage work • Pain • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder • Stop smoking
Psychosensory Techniques and Principles are a unique blend of therapies (including EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, Hypnosis, NLP, Havening, Progressive Thought Field Therapy, VCART) taking the best from each and combining them to make Psy-TaP.
In addition to this, I am a qualified Thought Field Therapy Practitioner. Thought Field Therapy, also known as meridian tapping, is a powerful technique that you can take home with you! A non-invasive, non-medical way of combating anxiety, pain, trauma and fear, letting you live the life that you want to live.
The principle of Psy-TaP is to work content free – you don’t need to tell me what the problem is or relive painful memories – just how you are feeling, and what you want to feel.
I use principles of Psy-Tap with 95% of clients as it blends incredibly well with hypnosis, plus contains useful techniques that you can do after sessions. Learn to reduce anxiety, manage your anger, and change your emotions as you wish. I will help you take back control.
