Hello my name is Lizzy and I am an Integrative counsellor. I work from my own private practice in Brent Knoll Somerset. I offer a kind, caring and confidential counselling service, working with individuals, children & adolescents, couples and the elderly.

I offer my counselling sessions as either open-ended or for an agreed time period. I usually work from my therapy room in Brent Knoll but can work within the community and offer home visits to housebound or disabled clients. I take referrals from outside agencies and employers and schools.

I specialise in working with Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD & ASD as well as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue and many other pain and fatigue related conditions,
