Psychotherapy and Counselling in South Manchester
I’m Liz Jeffries, and I provide psychotherapy and counselling for individuals. I also offer couples and online therapy.
I also have two therapy groups beginning in January 2018. One is for those people seeking help with migraine and chronic pain issues, and the other for those struggling with weight or overeating issues. Please contact me if you are interested in joining one of these groups.
Face-to-face sessions (for individuals, couples and groups) take place in in Chorlton, South Manchester, while online therapy provides the freedom for geographic location to be more flexible.
Having been through a process of psychotherapy myself. I am now passionate about therapy, and the opportunities it presents for feeling better, exploring change and for resolving personal issues and difficulties in life.
Counselling Rooms in Chorlton is easily accessible from all areas of South Manchester including from Didsbury, Urmston, Sale, Flixton and Stretford. If you are interested in online therapy please visit my Online Therapy page.
Approach and Experience
The main approach underpinning my work is transactional analysis. This is a form of psychotherapy which focuses on how we become who we are, and how we grow and change during the course of life.
Please visit my Therapy Approach page for a more detailed explanation of the theoretical models which underpin my work.
I have experience of helping people with the following:
Abuse (Domestic, Emotional, Physical)
Anxiety and Stress
Bereavement, Loss and Grief
Psychological Aspects of Migraine and Chronic Pain
Sexuality and Identity Issues
Self-Harm or Self-Injury
Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem Difficulties
I also have experience of helping people explore and work through more general concerns to do with a sense of discomfort, ' just not feeling right', and a sense of recurring life patterns or themes.
Areas of Special Interest
I have a particular interest in anxiety. In particular, how feeling separate (isolated, alone) or connected (in relationship) can have an impact on levels of anxiety.
I also have an interest in how relationship and connectedness can be maintained at a distance. Online relationships can often be seen as 'second best' but in our increasingly technological society they are becoming distinct and significant kinds of relationships, and ones which also contribute to anxiety levels.
A third area of interest is in the psychological aspects of pain. I work with people who suffer from migraine and other chronic pain conditions, while understanding that pain can often emerge or worsen following periods of emotional distress.

All therapy sessions (including the first one) last for 50 minutes.
