About Me – ELizabeth Hills BA (Hons), Dip. Couns., MBACP (Accred.)

crop_1I am a qualified person centred counsellor accredited and registered (083879) with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My specialisms are:

  • Bereavement
  • Cancer counselling
  • Trauma
  • Spiritual emergence

Additionally I am a practising astrologer.  I trained as a counsellor and astrologer concurrently and from first-hand experience I value how the two disciplines complement each other.  During difficult periods, I consult my own chart and this helps me get a sense of what’s going on.

I was drawn to Carl Rogers’ Person Centred theoretical approach to counselling.  I find this to be a liberating approach which allowed me to discover who I really am.  I am interested in spiritual development and my counselling has evolved to support clients experiencing a ‘spiritual awakening / emergency’ – work pioneered by Stanislav Grof, Czech psychiatrist.

Before becoming a counsellor, I worked in the Defence and Aerospace industry for 15 years, including a period of commissioned service with the Royal Air Force.  I understand the pressures of working in fast paced, demanding environments, whilst striving to maintain a work-life balance.

I am based in Halesworth, Suffolk, East Anglia offering short or longer term counselling, face to face and online.  Please contact me here contact form .
