Psychotherapy and Counselling in South Manchester
I’m Liz Jeffries, a therapist providing psychotherapy and counselling for individuals and couples.
I offer both Face-to-face Sessions (for individuals and couples) and Online Therapy .
Face-to-face sessions take place in in Chorlton, South Manchester. Please visit my Online Therapy page for information about Online Therapy.
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.
Approach and Experience
The main approach underpinning my work as a therapist 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 About Therapy page for a more detailed explanation of the theoretical models which underpin my work, and my Psychotherapy or Counselling page for an explanation of some ways in which psychotherapy and counselling can be distinguished from each other and can be used both separately and together.
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 Other 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.
My therapy room is based at Counselling Rooms in Chorlton, which is easily accessible from all areas of South Manchester including from Didsbury, Urmston, Sale, Stockport, Flixton and Stretford.
Located on the corner of High Lane and Barlow Moor Road, Chorlton Bus Station is just a two-minute walk away. St Werburgh's Road tram station is within a fifteen-minute walk, and there is also on-site car parking. A map of the location is given below.

Payment methods accepted include:
Frequency of Attendance
I offer weekly or fortnightly sessions. Seeing your therapist at least fortnightly is important for building the solid working relationship that is usually needed to help explore and work through presenting issues. There is, however, flexibility about whether to attend weekly or fortnightly and we can discuss what is best for you at our initial meeting.
Sessions are generally on the same day and at the same time each week or fortnight (e.g Tuesdays at 5.30pm or every other Friday at 4.30pm). If you work on a shift pattern or have other commitments which prevent you from attending at a regular day and time please send me an email to discuss alternative arrangements. I'll do my best to accommodate your needs but whether this is possible will depend on the issues you are bringing to therapy as well as my schedule at the time.
As I see people both on a weekly and fortnightly basis and as I have a full schedule I ask for 48 hours notice for cancellations. Payment in full for any missed or cancelled session is due unless this notice period has been provided, whatever the reason for the cancellation.
An ending period is an important part of the therapy. It provides time to see how progress and change has been made, as well as to prepare for not being in therapy any longer. Negotiating an ending period allows space for these elements, and may be anything from one session to a few months, depending on your personal needs and the length of time that you have been attending.
How to Contact Me
email is probably the quickest and most convenient way to contact me, but if you prefer phone or text message contact then please do use those methods.
I am usually available at various points throughout the day and often will respond to your message within 1-2 hours during my working day, (9am - 8pm Monday to Friday). If this is not possible then I will respond to your enquiry within 24 hours.
