COUNSELLING AND TALK THERAPIES

About Liz

Whilst Liz  is a fully qualified counsellor and works within the BACP Code of Ethics, it's clear her desire to help people make positive change comes from the heart.

 

Having worked as a clinical pharmacist for 30 years, Liz knows that often it's not medicine which elicits the biggest changes. Sometimes it takes talking and being listened to: time, not more tablets. Qualified as a Person-Centred Counsellor, her work is absolutely tailored to the individual. Her success comes from creating a safe, non threatening, non judgemental space in which people can talk openly and be heard. From this come opportunities to change the things that can be changed, and to develop coping strategies for the things which can't be changed.

Are you struggling but have no-one to talk to or who understands? Would you like space and time to be listened to with someone you can trust? Liz aims to create a safe place in which you can feel accepted, not judged, free to explore whatever you are finding difficult and make sense of your thoughts and feelings. She believes that having counselling can make a huge difference to your life as it has to hers. Everyone experiences problems in their lives and we all have times when we feel unable to cope and very alone. Sometimes too many difficult things happen at once and we can’t see a way out of confusion and pain. Counselling can really help at times like this. It is a way of helping you work out how to improve your life or cope better.​

The hardest thing is always to take the first step but it may be the best thing you could do!

 

Counselling can help with - many things including 

  • anxiety,

  • depression,

  • feelings or lonely

  • low self-confidence or low self-esteem

  • bereavement

  • relationship problems

  • stress  

  • … and much more!

What can I expect?

An initial session to explain more about counselling, explore your concerns and what you might hope for in counselling  and  agree a number of sessions.

We recommend 6 sessions to start with and we can review if that is sufficient or if you would like more. The beauty of private counselling is flexibility and it can last for as long as you would like, depending on your needs. 

Sarah Garner

Mental Health Nurse & IEMT Practitioner

How can Sarah Help you?

IEMT is a process that can generate rapid change in reducing unwanted emotional and identity issues for most people. Part of this method involves holding problematic memories in mind whilst the eyes are moved in different directions, often resulting in the original memory losing its emotional impact and becoming far less disturbing. The whole process helps you realise how you are living so you can make better choices.

 

Maybe you have already tried other therapies but still feel stuck or feel that issues have not entirely been resolved. IEMT works for most people most of the time. Outcomes cannot be guaranteed, but an exploration of your problems and what may be keeping you stuck should allow you to move forward in your life. This technique is carried out without the need to talk about in-depth details of painful or embarrassing memories and brings you more into the present, enabling you to stay out of past negative experiences. At its foundation are five patterns of chronicity, which will be explored and discussed in session.

What can IEMT help with?

  • Most emotionally based issues, i.e., guilt, shame, regret, remorse, sadness, unhappiness

  • Identity-based issues, i.e., self-confidence, self-esteem

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Fears & phobias

  • PTSD and trauma

  • Anger

  • Unwanted habits

  • Weight issues

  • Smoking Cessation​

 

About Me

I am a registered member of the IEMT Association and a qualified mental health nurse registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). I have worked in the mental health field since 2003 and qualified as a mental health nurse in 2006. I have many years of professional experience within the NHS and have an understanding of most mental health issues.  I trained in IEMT in April 2021 and have used this in private practice since. I also have experience being a client of IEMT myself and understand how it feels to be on the other side.

 

 

I have a BSc in Mental Health Nursing and I am currently working towards my MSc in Psychology.  I will also be completing the IEMT Advanced Practitioners courts in February 2022.
