As a professional, Liz works with integrity, honesty, care and compassion. Her counselling interests and focus are mental and emotional wellness, grief and loss, crisis and trauma support, suicide and self-harm prevention.
Liz began her counselling journey as a volunteer for Lifeline Northern Beaches from 2005 until 2010. During this time, she learnt the important skills of assisting a person in crisis and most particularly, how to work with a person at risk of suicide. Liz has completed a Bachelor of Applied Social Science, majoring in Counselling. Liz has a love of and passion for training that educates people to develop life skills, which enable them to conduct meaningful, difficult and important conversations with the people in their lives.
Liz recognises that life is full of challenges. Often, we are able to successfully manage these challenges through our own resilience and the support from those around us. Yet, sometimes we can become quite overwhelmed. Worries and concerns build upon one another and life can become confusing and stressful. This can make us feel vulnerable and overwhelmed. It is at these times that counselling can be the helping hand we need. Helping to make sense of our world, unpack our pain, be listened to, heard and supported in an individually focused, safe, non-judgemental way.
I believe that together we can empower individuals to find a way through their life challenges, one step at a time.
