As an experienced health psychologist, intuitive coach, and meditation practitioner, I am able to listen deeply and compassionately and support you in areas of your life where you most need it. Based in Warwickshire and I am able to offer face to face and online appointments. I have experience in a wide range of areas including; psychology, energy psychology, mindfulness & compassion, pain psychology, intuitive coaching, sound therapy & energy healing.
By creating a space that allows you to explore and reflect, I can support you to move towards the changes and realisations required for you.
Energy psychology introduces creative ways to encourage the letting go of patterns that reduce our happiness and well-being. Creating space to focus on what we do want to welcome into our lives.
I know the value of compassionate ways of working therapeutically, and I have led academic courses on compassion, and now also train coaches and run retreats all with the element of compassion being central to transformation.
It can be useful to know the areas which I regularly support people with. Allowing you to get some insight as to whether I might be the right coach for you.

My passion is helping people to feel at ease, enhancing self esteem, and accessing, trusting their own wisdom within.

How I can help you
Whether its personal or spiritual development you are seeking, or you are going through changes I offer a safe and nurturing space. Often over time we develop limiting beliefs, patterns that hold us back, and fear. Sometimes we just don’t know what to do with our lives or feel lost. I understand how difficult it can be to overcome these obstacles. Coaching supports you to move through changes, creating more of what you want in your life. Enabling you to access your own knowing to a greater extent. That deep inner connection.
I also offer supervision to coaches and mentors.
I am an accredited master coach with IAPC&M and a HCPC registered Health Psychologist.
What to expect from a session
Each time we meet we will agree what you need to gain from the session. The most important part of our sessions is that you feel relaxed and comfortable. I draw upon psychology, coaching methods, sound healing, visualisation, meditation and compassion practices to support you.
I love working with individuals and groups, supporting change for greater happiness, success and peace. I have created and directed academic and personal transformational courses, retreats and workshops.

When I work
I went to liz for coaching as I was feeling stuck in certain areas of my life and overwhelming emotions were affecting my decision making and perception of things. Liz has the most wonderful calming energy about her and during the session, she allowed me to voice my feelings in a safe space whilst helping guide me to feel beyond the emotions and be aware of my own intuition and find my own solutions to why I was feeling this way. This is a wonderful alternative to therapy/counselling as it’s a gentle practice of someone holding space for you, allowing you to move forward and let go of things you may be holding that you no longer need.
Liz's sessions have provided a great source of external support over this spring/summer. She is truly a masterful, intuitive and sensitive guide, holding very deep, vulnerable spaces where I felt this connection to myself and could release tensions, certain thoughts and beliefs that have been holding me back. It's not just this, it's the awareness from the sessions, and after the sessions, I felt lighter, and something unexplainable had been shifted within my perception and my body. It's been very healing and cleansing for my mind, body and soul. I truly feel even though we weren't together in person, there was an authentic space held online, where these small shifts has lead to a transformation within me.
