Psychotherapy and Counselling in South Manchester
I am Liz Jeffries. I am a Certified Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, and have been in private practice since 2014.
I am also an online therapist, and all therapy I currently offer is Online Therapy, via webcam and using Zoom.
When I am able to resume Face-to-face therapy sessions, they will take place in Chorlton, South Manchester.
Approach and Experience
The main models of therapy underpinning my work as a psychotherapist are Transactional Analysis and Relational Psychotherapy. Transactional analysis psychotherapy looks at how we become who we are, and how we grow and change during the course of life. Relational Psychotherapy is an approach which believes in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as the significant agent for change and successful therapy.
Please visit my Therapy Approach Page for a more detailed explanation of the theoretical models which underpin my work as a therapist, as well as more detailed information about my qualifications and experience.
I have experience of helping people with the following:
Anxiety and Stress
Bereavement, Loss and Grief
Depression and low mood, including sadness, unhappiness and problems with motivation
Issues of prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal
Specialist Psychological Support for Migraine (fears, and anxieties and difficulty coping)
Sexuality and Other Identity Issues
Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem Difficulties
Workplace Stress and other difficulties
A sense of 'just not feeling right'
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.
Therapy can be short-term (lasting a few weeks), for several months, or it can last for a number of years when there is a long-term commitment to personal growth and development. How long your therapy lasts can be decided at the beginning of the therapy or can be worked out during the process.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Some people decide to work with a therapist because they are struggling to resolve past issues. Others want to focus on present-centred issues and circumstances. There are no right or wrong reasons to seek therapy. All kinds of difficulty can be worked through.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or questions about beginning therapy, or how psychotherapy may be able to help you.
