About Me


I am Liz Jarman, a BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)

Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist (  I work within the BACP’s

Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.


I did not become a counsellor until I was in my early forties, having spent 20 years working in Banking, Finance and IT.  This means that I am able to bring a wealth of life experience to my counselling work, which I believe is very important for a counsellor.


I currently have a private practice in Leigh-on-Sea & Southend-on-Sea, Essex.

I worked as a Pupil Support Manager/Counsellor for 7 years in a Special Needs School

& also as a volunteer counsellor at an NHS Mental Health Unit for 6 years.


I also provide Supervision for other Counsellors and Student Counsellors.


I currently teach the Level 2 'Certificate in Counselling Skills' and the

Level 4 'Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling' at a local college.


I also run a number of Short Courses and Workshops.




I originally trained as a Mathematician and have a BSC (Hons) degree in Mathematics,

but when I changed my career path to become a Counsellor, I have gained

the following qualifications since starting my counselling career.


Certificate in Counselling Skills

Advanced Diploma in Counselling

Practitioner Diploma in Counselling Theory and Skills

Certificate In Counselling Supervision

EMDR (Eye Movement De-sensitisation &

 Reprocessing) Levels 1, 2,  3 & 4


I believe that continuing professional development is very important and I regularly

undertake additional training to enhance my skills and knowledge base.
