Different therapy models look at the human dilemma through different lenses.
An understanding of your goals for therapy will shape the treatment plan.
Elizabeth will work with you to choose the path that is best suited to your needs.

Elizabeth is currently involved in a range of supervision groups, exploring Self Psychology, Chairwork psychotherapy, and Internal Family Systems.
She loves learning and values continuous training and supervision.

How we talk to ourselves matters.
Punitive, guilt-inducing, and demanding internal voices often underpin depression and anxiety. 

Notice how you speak to yourself... Are you being mean, shaming, critical?

Catch that inner critic, pause, and try some self compassion instead. It's powerful stuff!

A voice of compassion, kindness, and understanding builds a foundation of inner support and comfort. Being kind isn't being weak. We can be firm and kind.

How do I do it? Talk to you as you would to a dear friend or loved one or a small child...
wanting the best for them, encouraging them, accepting them, allowing them to be imperfect.
