Psychotherapy in Manchester and Online
Short-term and long-term Psychotherapy for Individuals. Face-to-Face in Chorlton, South Manchester, and Online
Psychotherapy and Counselling in South Manchester
I’m Liz Jeffries, and I provide psychotherapy and counselling in Chorlton, South Manchester.
I am trained as a psychotherapist and can work with you on a short-term or long-term basis to help you to resolve your difficulties, concerns and problems.
Before training as a psychotherapist I experienced psychotherapy for myself. I am now passionate about therapy, and the opportunities it presents 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, Flixton and Stretford. If you are interested in online therapy please visit my Online Therapy page.
Approach and Experience
The main approaches underpinning my work are humanistic psychotherapy and transactional analysis. Humanistic psychotherapy can help understand feelings and experiences by focusing on the 'whole person' experience rather than isolating or separating a specific issue or symptom (such as anxiety or depression). Transactional Analysis is a theoretical approach 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 how these theoretical models underpin my work, and my How Therapy Helps page for an explanation of the ways in which a counsellor and a psychotherapist may work similarly and yet also differently.
As a psychotherapist, I have experience of helping people with the following:
Anxiety and Stress
Sexuality and Identity Issues
Self-Harm or Self-Injury
Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem Difficulties
Bereavement, Loss and Grief
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) influences how anxious we feel.
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.
I use the therapeutic relationship in both online therapy and face-to-face therapy to explore patterns of relating and anxiety experiences.
Cost and Duration of Sessions
All therapy sessions (including the first one) last for 50 minutes.
I charge £40 per session for both face-to-face and online therapy.
In addition, a small number of concessionary rate places are available for those on low incomes. Please contact me if you think you may be eligible for one of these places.
Payment methods accepted include cash or cheque (at the end of each therapy session), or bank transfer (in advance of the session).
