In addition to her work as a private practitioner, Liz is now a supervisor of other counsellors for their individual and couple work. She regularly attends CPD (continuing professional development) courses each year to enhance her skills and keep abreast of new ideas, and is also a member of COSCA, the professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in Scotland.

Liz sometimes refers clients on to other counsellors as appropriate, for example, for Psychosexual Therapy.  If this happens, clients can be assured that these therapists are also highly qualified and experienced.


There are a number of different types of therapy used in counselling such as psychodynamic, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), TA (transational analysis) or person-centred, each of which has specific ideas about the causes of and solutions to people’s problems.  While Liz often works with psychodynamic principles, ie recognising the importance of past experience on current behaviour, other approaches may be used to meet the specific needs of different clients.  However, regardless of theoretical model, clients will always be treated with empathy, respect and without judgement.   Therapy is usually short-term.
