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)

I have a particular interest in women’s issues, trauma and relational difficulties.

I am an integrative relational therapist, which means I am able to draw from several theoretical perspectives according to what might work best for 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.

I believe counselling and psychotherapy should be accessible to all. Therefore, I am able to offer limited availability daytime concessions for those able to provide proof of low income.

Contact me today to arrange your free telephone consultation.

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 2134766491361439296_6086585830 Challenging your negative thoughts doesn’t mean you have to be happy all of the time. ⠀
How exhausting is that!? ⠀
It’s also commonly termed as toxic positivity. ⠀
Yes, there’s a term to describe being overly positive all of the time. ⠀
We’re not robots, we are supposed to think and feel a myriad of things. ⠀
Negative thoughts are a part of normal brain functioning. ⠀
Experts believe you have between 60,000 - 80,000 thoughts in a day so there’s bound to be plenty of negative thoughts in there too. ⠀
When the thoughts become disproportionate and outweigh balanced thinking on a regular basis is the time to consider getting additional help. ⠀

Instagram post 2126106623033311626_6086585830 My latest blog post looks at 4 toxic behaviours in a relationship. ⠀
It helps each individual in a relationship to become aware and accountable for their own behaviours and actions. ⠀
When you become accountable you move away from playing the victim or getting trapped in the blame game. ⠀
This helps to leave space for healthy relating during times of conflict and the ability to problem solve in the relationship. ⠀

Instagram post 2121006582538995658_6086585830 As awful as anxiety or an anxiety attack feels, it won’t hurt you and the feeling will pass. ⠀
⠀
🌟Therapist tip:⠀
Instead of fearing or avoiding anxiety, try naming the feeling as it usually takes the power of the emotion away. ⠀

Instagram post 2116733561846446106_6086585830 Sometimes it’s nice to have a social media break to enjoy what’s going on in the real world. ⠀
I’ve had a lovely few days celebrating my birthday and spending time with friends and family. ⠀
Anybody else get confused what day of the week it is during the summer? ⠀
I must say I’m enjoying the slower pace before the summer is over and it all kicks off again. ⠀

Instagram post 2110449329125792970_6086585830 Experiencing a life changing event such as a job loss, end of a meaningful relationship or a decline in physical health can impact your emotional wellbeing, confidence and self esteem.
It can be difficult to navigate your next steps, but counselling and psychotherapy can help. ⠀
Counselling provides you an opportunity to safely explore what your next steps might be to find a way to move forward that works best for you. ⠀We can’t always change our situation, but we can learn to live and adapt to our circumstances, whatever they might be. ⠀
⠀
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass....it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
