A Little about me

I’m a trauma informed psychotherapist and coach. I help empaths to find self-acceptance, heal from emotional trauma and have wholehearted healthy relationships. 

People choose to come to counselling for all sorts of reasons. That feeling of being overwhelmed, feeling stuck, lack of sleep, becoming irritable with family and friends, heightened anxiety, difficulty in relationships.

Perhaps you have reached a crossroad in your life. Maybe you have the life you have always dreamed of, but things still don’t feel right.

You might have low self esteem or a negative inner critic that is always telling you that you’ve done something wrong or that you are not good enough.

Therapy can be the catalyst to understanding yourself better and making real long-lasting change.

Hi,

I'm Lizandra

about me

I’m Lizandra and I’m a trauma informed psychotherapist relationship therapist and emotional wellbeing coach.  

I help individuals and couples to heal from hurtful experiences of the past, become empowered, and find their authentic voice, so that they can have better relationships with themselves and feel more connected in their relationships.  

That means identifying hurtful triggers that might make you feel emotionally disconnected or feel overwhelmed in your relationships.  

This might look like not feeling comfortable or safe to express yourself emotionally as a result of toxic relationships of the past.   

You might feel angry or reluctant to get close to others. You might feel as though you self-sabotage in your relationships, like being distant, avoidant, or expressing anger in an unhelpful way.  

I can help you to feel better and more confident about yourself and your relationships.

Maybe you're overwhelmed?

You might be feeling overwhelmed and like there is a real imbalance in some of your relationships, but you want that change. 

You want to have relationships that are fulfilling and show mutual respect, to feel connected and secure, without feeling controlled or manipulated.   

I help those who have big hearts and are empathic in helping others, but don’t often show themselves the same level of empathy and compassion.  

People who put the needs of other before their own or people please as a result of low self-worth  

I can help you to identify what your needs are by building self-compassion 

establishing healthier boundaries and working through those limiting beliefs so that you can have healthier relationships that feel equal and fulfilling.  

Aside from therapy I’m an avid book reader, a drinker of all teas, a wife, a mum and a self-confessed introvert who isn’t impartial to occasional extrovert tendencies.

& Counselling Experience

I am trained to Master’s level from the University of Roehampton and began my training in 2008 with an advanced diploma in integrative counselling and psychotherapy.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS), which means I abide to their strict code of ethics and practice. I regularly attend clinical supervision to ensure I am meeting the needs of my clients by working safely, ethically and with clinical competence.

Couples Therapy: £120 per 60 minute session

Coaching: £90 60 minutes  (reduced fees for blocks of 6) 

Coaching for Therapists: £149 60 minutes (reduced fees for blocks of 6)   

My varied roles have allowed me to work with a variety of ages with vast cultural beliefs and backgrounds.

Counselling for a leading mental health charity, I worked with clients experiencing a number of mental health diagnosis’ such as clinical depression, generalised anxiety disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder and post traumatic stress disorder.

Working with this client group gave me the ability to understand the importance of working with the person as an individual, each with their own personal life experiences and personal history as opposed to only a mental health disorder label.

Now, in private practice and as a mental health advocate, I believe it is important to highlight that we all have mental health, we might just need a bit of extra support or help when we are experiencing particular difficulties.
