Confidential Caring Counselling
Welcome to my website for Counselling Clyde Coast. My name is Elizabeth and I am a fully Accredited Registered MBACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist with many years' experience of working therapeutically with people using a client-centred approach. I have a well known and established counselling practice in Largs on the beautiful North Ayrshire coast which is easily accessible to clients from throughout Ayrshire, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and the surrounding areas. As a professionally qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist, my aim is to offer a safe, confidential, therapeutic, counselling relationship to clients. I offer face to face counselling and can also offer telephone counselling, when appropriate. As well as therapeutic counselling services, I provide counselling supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and other healthcare professionals. My particular and specialist areas of interest are bereavement and loss as well as work-related issues. Please feel free to explore this website to find out more about therapy, counselling and the services I offer.
Why seek help from a counsellor?
Life challenges us in many ways and most people experience difficulties or problems at some time in their lives. We can become overwhelmed and confused within certain situations; we may notice increasing anxiety and panic; we may have relationship issues; we can struggle with illness, death, loss, change and transitions. We can have difficulty in finding answers and direction that feel right for us. There may also be some areas of our lives that we would like to understand more clearly, change or improve. These are some of the challenges faced in everyday life which clients bring to counselling/psychotherapy.
Counselling/Psychotherapy offers an opportunity to express ourselves without fear of judgement and to be able to look at ourselves and our lives in a safe, caring and confidential environment. It can help us to see things from different perspectives while allowing space to clarify our own thoughts and feelings. With clearer understanding, different choices can be explored and made. Counselling/Psychotherapy can also be helpful for developing new strategies and ways of problem solving.
From my easily accessible venue in Largs, North Ayrshire, I aim to provide a confidential, caring space where clients feel free to express themselves, in the clear knowledge that they will be heard and accepted without judgement. Within this safe working relationship, clients have the opportunity to understand themselves more fully and bring about the changes and life choices that, on an individual basis, feel beneficial for them.
Some of the difficulties or concerns that people bring to counselling are:
In my role as counsellor, I am committed to listening to clients without judgement; offering understanding within a caring, confidential, supportive working relationship and facilitating clients to:
“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity, then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship of an empathic stance… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.” Carl Rogers (1902-1987)
What do I offer and where am I?
I offer differ ways of working to suit your individual needs and circumstances – open-ended; short-term; time-limited and telephone work. I aim to be as flexible as I can regarding the days and times offered to fit in with clients' lifestyles and working patterns.
My counselling room in North Ayrshire is conveniently placed within Largs town centre close to road, bus and rail links. There is some on road parking at the venue and alternative parking close by. Largs is not only easily accessible for clients in and around North Ayrshire but also for those coming from Kilmarnock in the east, Prestwick in the south and is only a short distance from both the Inverclyde and Renfrewshire borders.
