Elizabeth Turp Counsellor , L1

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I have a wide range of training and skills to help you which are adaptable according to your own personal communication style, needs and problems. I work from a person-centred base, which means that I go with what you are ready for and want to get out of therapy. For example CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and mindfulness approaches. 

I worked for 11 years as a counsellor in NHS Primary Care mental health where I offered integrative therapy across the full range of common mental health problems: anxiety; depression; stress; postnatal depression; abuse; adjusting to disability; difficulty with life transitions such as retirement; grief and loss, sleep problems and relationship problems. 

I specialise in the impact of chronic physical health problems on mental health and have published a book on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME. If you have a chronic physical condition such as arthritis, epilepsy, an injury that has changed your physical capability, or chronic fatigue syndrome/ME, you may be struggling to cope with the frustration, anxiety, low mood and uncertainty you experience.

See my website for more on how I work, and articles on the interactions between mental health and physical health and living well with chronic conditions.
