A warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting New Frame Counselling and Psychotherapy.

My name is Lizandra Leigertwood and I am an experienced fully qualified integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.

Lizandra Leigertwood Relationship Counsellor & Psychotherapist in Hertfordshire

 

I help people to improve their relationships, whether that's the relationship that you have with yourself, or the relationships that you have with others.

My counselling practice is based in Hertfordshire, St Albans and easily accessible from nearby areas such as Watford, Potters Bar, Kings Langley, Harrow, Finchley, Barnet and North London.

I work with individuals over the age of eighteen and couples for short-term counselling or longer-term psychotherapy.

 

Some of the areas I work with include:

  • Couples Counselling
  • Trauma
  • Personality Disorders
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship problems (including family & work)

My special interest areas are working with relationships, anxiety and trauma. 

I am an integrative relational therapist, which means I am able to use different ways of working to create an individual therapy experience that is catered to you.

Through counselling you can:

  • Learn effective ways to communicate
  • Identify what your needs are and get them met
  • Feel calmer when facing stressful situations
  • Develop problem solving skills
  • Increase your confidence and self esteem

Maybe you want to feel better about some difficult family relationships and move on from past hurtful experiences.

Perhaps you feel that you react out of anger or resentment and would like to make a change, or you feel unable to make a decision or feel like you make the wrong choices.

I'm a firm believer in hope and the power to change, you don't have to go through difficult times alone. Counselling can help you to hear your own voice and make sense of what it is that is causing you distress.

Please contact me for a free initial 15-minute telephone consultation to discuss your individual needs and to see how therapy can help you.

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

New Frame Counselling & Psychotherapy; Counselling St Albans, Hertfordshire.

New Frame

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same or similar situations - perhaps you are feeling unsatisfied in your relationships – feeling used, unheard or just misunderstood. It can be difficult to expect others to change without knowing more about our selves and what we can do to sustain healthier relationships. We can’t always change the situation, but we can learn, develop and change how we deal with difficulty. Counselling and Psychotherapy can facilitate in finding a new frame of reference, which can reframe your experience, helping you to find clarity and understanding.

New Hope

This is the first step towards help and change. Counselling can provide a confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment to fully explore your wants and needs. Together, we can work towards finding new ways to improve your relationships with others, and most importantly, your self.

Instagram post 2187699340713011641_6086585830 There are some beliefs that we carry with us from childhood experiences that may have helped at one time, but now hinders our growth and our relationships. .
.
We come to interpret our internal values as fact because it becomes an unconscious way of being. .
.
Therapy helps to bring those thoughts to the forefront of your  awareness. .

Instagram post 2185132430113811632_6086585830 Anxiety has a way of making the small things seem bigger than what they actually are.
Slow things down and challenge the validity of your anxious thoughts.

Instagram post 2181918818526340649_6086585830 There’s been a lot of talk about NOvember, which is great but sometimes we get caught up in saying no to ourselves out of 🚫 Guilt 🚫 People Pleasing
and the other trappings that end up keeping you stuck.
So I challenge you to say YES more and start doing more of the things that will make you happy.
What will you say YES to today? .

Instagram post 2180801464498939862_6086585830 This week is Self Care Week, for self care ideas you can head over to my stories where I’ll be posting more self care ideas.
⭐️Self care tip⭐️
If you have a busy workload or things just seem to get in the way, add self care into your daily and weekly schedule.
It doesn’t need to be anything huge, but setting even a small intention can help you to get there.
Don’t just plan it in your head, write it down, add a phone notification, whatever helps to keep you on track. .

Instagram post 2171047206818272123_6086585830 One of the best ways to heal is acknowledging that you need help and asking the right people for support.
My latest blog looks at how you can support those close to you who are struggling with depression, but it really applies to dealing with any form of mental health issue.
One thing you can do to help is to not be so afraid or dismissive when somebody attempts to talk to you about their mental health.

Instagram post 2169612957141501076_6086585830 Sometimes our minds go to the worse case scenario and we go into panic and overthinking.
Instead of anticipating everything that could go wrong, what if it all works out?
With all the thoughts of worrying that’s a lot of wasted time and energy on something that might never happen.
Plan it, visualise it, then make it a reality.
You got this. .

This graphic is just too good not to share.

Instagram post 2160142737578466032_6086585830 Feelings are neither good or bad, they just are.
You don’t have to feel bad for feeling hurt, or guilty when you feel sad.
Acknowledging how you feel can be more helpful than denying or repressing your emotions. .

Instagram post 2159730042049723826_6086585830 Negative self talk is toxic to your wellbeing and your relationships. When your inner critic is getting the best of you, asking if you would say it to a friend is a helpful way to stop, and change your thoughts to something more compassionate. It’s important to be kind to yourself too. .
