Psychotherapy in South Manchester
Welcome, I am Liz Jeffries, a UKCP-Registered psychotherapist, National Counselling Society-accredited counsellor and ACTO-accredited online therapist.
I have been in private practice since 2014 in Chorlton, South Manchester and Online, and I offer both short-term (6-8 sessions) and open-ended therapy for individuals. Currently all therapy I offer is Online or by phone.
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
Depression and low mood, including sadness, unhappiness and problems with motivation
Issues of prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal
Loss of a person or something important
Specialist Psychological Support for Migraine (fears, and anxieties and difficulty coping)
Relationship Issues or Difficulties
Sexuality and Other Identity Issues
Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem Difficulties
Workplace Stress and other 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.
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. There is no right or wrong length for therapy to last, but rather the duration of therapy is unique to you. Decisions about how long you come to therapy for can be made at the beginning of the therapy or can be worked out as the therapy proceeds.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Some people decide to work with a therapist when 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.
